    Rockford fosgate p3d212 amp suggestions

    Ok im looking at the rockford p3 12 2ohm what i heard is that its able to run on 1ohm the rms is 500 watts and max is 1000 watts. Ive seen 2 amps that seem like they will be good for the subwoofer the 1st amp is a polk audio PA600 witch rms at 600 watts at 1 ohm the 2nd amp is a soundstream PX1 550 witch rms at 550 watts at 1ohm. I would like to run the subwoofer on 1ohm because i like deep bass but i want it hit hard. And I dont know if these amps would blow the subwoofer. If you have any amp suggestions that would work good for this sub let me know Im looking to spend $330 to $350 I already have rockford wiring kit and box. Also if anyone knows a better subwoofer than p3 let me know but I need to stay below $350 im purchasing this off of onlinecarstereo. thanks

    sub woofer- Sundown Audio SA-12 600 watt sub woofer

    Get the sub a dvc 4 ohm and have it wired down to 2 ohms. So it sees nothing more then 750 watts which will make you happy.

    that subwoofer brand is probably the best sub you can get right now in that price range. You will need a custom box built for it. Or you can have a design made and you make it. 10% sub 90% box for how they sound


    Have the box tuned to 33 hz most likely depends on music you like

    If thats all you know, dont buy anything until you spend some time reading through the forum. The W7 is a good OK loud SQ sub but its not that good and the L5 is not that good at anything. Personally, I like to spend a bit on a good amp. JL /, RF power, Kicker ZX, Sundown SAZ, older Orion HCCAs to name a few. For subs look into DC, SSA, Incriminator, FI, Digital Designs, Atomic, RD and a few others. The SA is good also. But remember, the more power you run the more draw your charging system sees. So upgrades start adding up also. High out put alternators and battery banks. For cable, Knuconceptz OFC flex is where its at

    After reviewing the sundown s512 4ohm it looks to be a good subwoofer and I plan on getting it need help to find a decent amp so that the sub will have nice sound. Sorry about being such a newbie if u could help me know what to look for when buying an amp for a sub that would help.
