    Will my setup work?!? HELP

    I have just recently bought:
    1x Alpine type x 12" woofer
    1x hifonics brutus 1700.d

    The alpine max wattage is 1000 watt RMS and the hifonics amp wattage is 600 watt RMS running at 4 ohms.

    I'm just wondering if running this amp and sub at 4 ohm would work?
    I bought these items yesterday and i am waiting for them to come i'm just unsure :/

    Ya it will work fine. I'm assuming you have d2 sub so why not just run at 1 ohm and set your gain accordingly.

    Because at even 2 ohm operation that amp is working 4X harder, that it was at 4 ohms and sound quality suffers. Drop it to 1 and you're another quadroupleing in heat.

    I would ask why buy THAT amp if you intended to run 4 ohm?

    My advice is to try 4 ohm operation and see if that's enough for you.

    Then you can wire it to either 2 or 8 ohms, 2 is what you'd wanna do.



    I use gain as a volume control.
