    RD Audio 3250 or IA 40.1 or Sundown SAZ 3000D?

    Which one would you rather have and why. My current plan is to push a single 18" f/l BTL in 8 cubes @ 30 Hz. I'm leaning toward the IA but I've been told I won't get rated power @ 1 ohm with music. Impedence rise I guess. I'm also curious what everyone thinks about going with the BTL. Someone mentioned using two RD Alpha 15s instead of the BTL. What do ya'll think about that? I have about 8 net cubes to work with and I intend to use around 3 - 4 thousand watts



    Current Setup:
    Nothing

    all three amps are very similar in design...id doubt you'd go wrong on any of them.

    I believe determining factor would go down to price and customer service, i dont know about price, but i do know that the CS from Sundown is unmatched in the business.

    actually all three are stand up companies, I really think it ends up being which amp just looks cooler than the others to the buyer

    You will get more than rated power for sure with the IA40.1 as they are under rated! Unlike popular belief 20.1's and 40.1's will do AT LEAST rated power at 1, 2 or 4 ohms loads, just because they will run at low ohm loads doesn't mean they are made or recommended for that.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Yes, I just believe Sundown's warranty policies are much more lenient than others.

    well, I dunno...im a firm believer if people do dumb **** to amps, they should get what they deserve....(IE: .5 & .25 ohm loads for daily isnt so bright)

    But all three amps are so similar in design characteristics, I dont think you could go wrong on any choice of them. Like I said, more to personal preference than actual performance as a basis of purchase.

    I wouldn't mind a IA 40.1. Lots of satisfied competitors with those.

    id go with whichever of the 3 you get the better price on honestly. I'm looking at sundown for a build at the moment but if i was able to get the power needed without sacrificing the reliability at a lower price id look at somethign else.

    Both Sundown and IA are good people.

    Re: RD Audio 3250 or IA 40.1 or Sundown SAZ 3000D?

    Well I like what I have heard. I think given what I have already learned about the IA I will go with it. Thanks for the opinions. Does anyone have anything to say about the subs. Many people say they like the Alphas but i don't know anything about them. The Fi just seems like a more rock solid driver. And nothign against RD but havign the word REVOLUTION written on the dust cap seems so Wal Mart to me.
