    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    youre getting 2 btl's and you don't know ohms? oh boy

    are they the old models or the new ones? (old are rated for 2k, new are 3k)

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    i kno a little about ohms im not like stupid

    and ive installed subs without a probelm in plenty of cars. and i kno i need more then amps i already am planning on two alternators and 4 batteries i just wanted to know what amps other people would suggest

    god for bid ur new around here i guess.


    Kangaroux: they are dual 1 ohm but are universal. just a daily sub not spl type but i do want them to hit nice.

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    i know theyre dual 1's lol but the older BTL's are rated for 2k rms whereas the new ones are 3k rms, which would be a deciding factor when it comes to choosing an amp

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    you can get them used for hella cheaper. and no offense but it sounds like your not exactly a pro when it comes to this stuff lol. maybe you should consider getting some BL's instead

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    ooo im not saying im a pro but i heard the btl's and really like how they sound. ive had type-r's, l5's, l7's and im just looking for something better and like i said i like the way the btl's sound. is there a huge difference in sound wit the bl's to the btl's or is it more meter difference?

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    well the BTL's are gonna obv. gonna be overall better, however, the BL15 vs. the older "N2" BTL is $100 cheaper and half the RMS. would still get plenty loud without breaking the bank and needing for you to buy an HO alt

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    no HO alt would be needed if i wasnt adding anything else? lol

    im planning on doing my doors and making a bridge over the back seats with 4 beyma 8's powered by an oxygen audio 2200.

    as for the doors im not sure wat im doing yet.

    but if i was to get the BL15's wat amp would u suggest going wit ? is the BL15 being sold on the FI website right now???

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    yea.

    BL's are 1000w each, get dual 1's so you have a final load of 1 ohm (assuming you get 2). a nice amp would be an AQ2200, but there's plenty of amps that would do that kind of power

    Re: amp suggestions for fi btl

    wire each sub individually in series up to 2 ohms (wire one pair of -/+ together, wire the remaining +/- to the inputs on the AQ)

    the AQ will parallel them for ya
