    boston acoustics g2 line

    How much power would you feed these while still being safe

    I got an autotek m2500.1d which has an 80a fuse but it pretty overrated

    Would my 15" g2 handle this amp at 2ohm?

    Sealed box 1.9 polyfill like a mutha

    It will be fine man I'm tellin you. Boston subs are very under rated when they are given a certain power rating.

    Re: boston acoustics g2 line

    Yep and the fuses on the subs protect them from getting too much power, they do no however prevent heat build up in the coil, but the radial vent cooling takes care of that. I beat the **** out of my g1s on 3x their rms ratings and the worst that would happen was a blown fuse and the coil never smelled. I could go on all day about how great their subs are lol. Its just a shame that BA never marketed properly.

    Simple SQ System:

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-117
    Active Crossover: Cache' CEX
    Front Stage Amp: Boston Acoustics GTA-704
    Components: Polk Audio DB 6501
    Sub Amp: Boston Acoustics GTA-1000m
    Sub: JBL P1224, 2.5 ft^3 @ 25 hz enclosure
    Rear Fill: Sony Xplod 5.25s on HU power lolz

    Not sure where you got the high sensitivity part, they are some of the least sensitive subs I've dealt with. But that's not what you buy them for. If you want great sound quality, build quality, technology, looks, reliability, and good performance in a small box, look no further.

    Re: boston acoustics g2 line

    And I doubt it will handle what I estimate is around 800rms from that amp, but like they said, it will probably blow the fuse. It'll probably enjoy like 4-500rms. Who knows though, that's just an educated guess. My G5 was more than happy with 600rms.

    I doubt the amp will do 800 at 2 ohm lol

    oooh so it's rated at 1ohm? Then yeah, 400rms will be fine for it if the power isn't clipped. Set your gain with at least a DMM, you'll be fine.

    I think I'm gonna throw a box together for one of my g2 15s in the next few days. I'm thinking about 4-4.5cubes with a 6in port tuned around 30-33hz.

    The svc's have a high qts, so it would need a large low tuned ported box to play flat. I'm not sure how well they do in sealed, Boston recommends fairly small boxes for sealed applications. But whats really concerning me is the EBP is in the 20s, which would indicate that the woofer is suited for a sealed enclosure, but the manual lists 3.5 @ 34hz for ported.
