    Icon32 I have the sub, need recommendation on amplifier!

    Hey everyone! I'm new here. I've got a single Sony XPLOD 12 inch 1200w (350w RMS) subwoofer that I want to put in my car. I'm looking at the Sound Storm Laboratories F4.400 amplifier. Will this be enough power for my Sony XPLOD subwoofer? If not, what would you recommend?!

    Thanks in advance, Jordan

    That soundstorm won't be near enough power. For that price range, though, I'd take a look at an AudioPipe APSM1300. Should work out well for you.

    is the sub a single 4 ohm voice coil? assuming it is there are TONS of options out there for you. i would search the classifieds here, bet you could snag something for 60 shipped

    No I don't feel like trolling outside the dome. I'm just trying to help the guy out within his price range. Yes, AP isn't the greatest, but if he's looking at SoundStorm he doesn't have a huge budget. Just trying to match what he needs with what he can afford.

    He could also look at a Boston GT2125. They're 110 on Sonic and will definitely be an improvement over both the AP and SoundStorm...

    Re: I have the sub, need recommendation on amplifier!

    I'm really not sure. Would it work though? Is the total wattage distributed evenly? Like if I only use one of the channels, are the 400w directed to just that one? And if I only used 2 channels, they'd be rated at 200w a piece?

    Sorry for the newbie questions, I honestly am clueless when it comes to this.

    Here are the stats for the AudioPipe:

    BRAND NEW Audiopipe APSM1300 1000 RMS Mono Mini Amplifier
    Frequency Response:10-180 Hz
    Low Pass Filter:40hz - 180HZ
    Subsonic Filter: 5 - 50Hz
    1 Ohm Stable
    300 x 1 RMS @ 4 Ohms
    600 x 1 RMS @ 2 Ohms
    1000 x 1 RMS @ 1 Ohms
    Dimensions (WxLxH): 6-1/8" x 2" x 12"

    What about the 4 Ohms wattage rating?

    That would work. Your sub is 4ohm, correct?
