Hey guys, first time here.. figured i might as well get some expert opinions.
I blew my 12" RF Punch HE a bit ago and have been without bass ever since. This was the second time in 4 years my sub blew so i decided to take a break from the bass for a bit. But now here i am, wanting it back!
I have a chance to get the new Rockford Fosgate 12" T112D4 at an unbelieable low price so im seriously considering it to fill the void in my life. However, i know my amp puts out only about 1/3 the power that this beast of a sub can take. My question to you guys is if this sub will blow or get fuct cuz im only feeding it 1/3 of what it can potentially handle?
Keep in mind that i don't really give a **** about maximizing the potential of this sub, or blowing my ears off with bass, i just need a little SPL to make me happy
Heres the specs of that sub:
Impedance 4-Ohm x 2
Power Handling 600 RMS 1200 Peak
Motor Size 124 oz. double stacked
Voice Coil Diameter 3" anodized aluminum
Speaker Connector Dual 8 AWG slot load
Mounting Depth 6.625"
Rec. Sealed Enclosure 1.25 cu. ft. 35.4 liters
Rec. Vented Enclosure 2.25 cu. ft. 63.72 liters
Tuning Frequency (vented) 40 Hz
Weight 30.6 Lbs. (13.9 Kg.)
and heres my current setup (no sub at the moment):
Kenwood Excelon 850 HU,
Rockford Fosgate 400S Amp (rated at 413Watt/206.5 RMS)
- 4 ohm load - 100w x 2
- 2 ohm load - 200w x 2
- 4 ohm bridged - 400w x 1,
Large SINGLE 12" Ported Box
The low price is making me want to just buy the sub and see what happens, but if it's not going to work at all, or will screw my car, or somehting else up it aint worth it.
Any advice is appreciated,
