    Going with 4 Sundown SA-8 v2's. What amp should I run?

    I am looking for suggestions with a attached reason.

    I have been looking around and am leaning towards SUndown or AQ amp. I have been using HLabs 1600.2 on my one 15 but I am looking to go a different route for the 4 8's.

    Two Sundown saz1500's? One Sundown 2500d? 3500d?
    AQ 2200d? 3500d?

    I am going to be running stock alt and battery for now untill I can afford to buy HO alt and extra bat

    I dont see you supporting much over a 2500 on all stock. If that. But 4 of them would love a 3500.

    I think the AQ3500 would be a bit much for those 8's daily lol.

    We did a setup with 4 SA8's for a guy on here with a sundown 3k @ 2 ohm and it was getting pretty loud with just that power.

    Re: Going with 4 Sundown SA-8 v2's. What amp should I run?

    I figured they would want 700+ each. I know they are rated at 500rms but have been told they can handle more than 3x that. I think a 3500 would be plenty and prob even a 2500 would move them well.

    250amp with one extra batt or 2 extra batts?

    Yes go 2 extra batts if u get a 3500 ...they r stout subs idk abt handling 3x their rns daily tho...thats a bit of a stretch..but 750 is plenty to get them movin...yea a 240 or 270 from mechman would be good setup

    I bought a 3500.1 rated at 3900+ at 14.4v. Hope the sa8 v2's can handle that daily or I just wasted my money on this amp
