    Under-rated @ 600w...

    So, if the SKAR VVXs are considered underrated at 600w RMS, what do you guys think would be a good amount of power to give them daily?

    I plan on buying 1 15" sub, and throwing it in a box that's giving the sub 3.0-3.2 cubic feet of space.

    skars are underrated at 600, but keep in mind there not underrated like a SA15 or a LI15.. id say 800rms daily is tops i would give it safely..

    I've seen videos of people puting 1000-1500 watts to each of them. Clean power though

    I'm thinking of giving it 900w @ 2 ohms and just being careful with the gain..

    Make sure that box is built well. If the sub is facing up in that trunk you will not be too happy.

    Yeah that's true. Daily probably 800-1000 maybe. What amps are you looking at?

    Also get an amp that does 1k at 2ohms that is because after voltage loss, box rise, and so on you will not get that much power going to it.

    you can cure alot of that issue of rise with, big 3 upgrade, direct leads to sub (no terminals or cups) and upgrade to a better agm battery under hood. that will cut your rise big time.. i have done the testing and just thoughs 3 things cut voltage loss and ohm rise in half if not more.

    I think the BRZ is a great match for the Skar's, it doesn't push rated, but in this case that's a good thing.

    I put a DAT2500.1 @ 1ohm to the pair of my VVX 10s daily they handled it fine never got stinky, Just be careful with your gain and stay clip free you should get away 1k maybe a little more a piece.

    And do you have proof that the BRZ does not do rated or are you just hating on hifonics like most?

    Likely he is stating that bc he hears it around, Ive owned the BRZ2400.1 and it was a very solid amp esp. for the price point although i never clamped it, it was very powerful and i loved it.
