    Just installed 4 Sundowns, need advice on power

    I just put in 4 Sundown SA 15 D4. All parallel to 0.5 ohms.....I would like to know what would be a good amp for a good price to put on em. I had them on a brutus 1700d1 for a few minutes, and they were sounding pretty nice. I was thinking to get 2 of those and putting them on a pair @ 1 ohm. Just wondering what are my options. I would also like to get a smaller amp in the same series for my compnents. Thanks for the insight!

    Re: Just installed 4 Sundowns, need advice on power

    As of right now, I have 1/0 big three, 2nd batt, and hung a 2nd alt, so I have 2-140a alts. Both factory GM.

    I was gonna put it on my 2100 HCCA, still may, but upon powering her up, the power supply went up. Back 3 months ago, I installed the 2100 and between the HU and amp I had an RCA line level adjustment knob, when I turned it, the amp got hot and distorted, so I shut it down, swapped over to my 250 HCCA and it did the same thing, but went up in smoke in a matter of seconds. The 2100 didnt, it popped an internal fuse. Today, the second she saw power, and I mean power, as in just the power cables, not even the remote or anything, the power supply went up. So....if I dont get it fixed, I will get something new. I have my eyes on a HiFonics Goliath locally, but dunno yet. I kinda wanna go all new.

    I just put in 4 Sundown SA 15 D4
    ........... so jealous right now.

    On another note, this may be better off in the amplifier section, you'll find more people wanting to talk about amplifiers sorry for a not very useful post.
