    sundown sub question

    Ok Im sitting here in the stan planning my next system out for when I go home on R&R and i got a couple questions. Im kinda set on the sundown SA 10's I have a old school RF 800a2 I can see where I can pick up 2nd and run one 800a2 per sub how well would that work any tuning issues or would a JL1000/1 work better?

    Thanks guys

    You would be better off using 1 monoblock.

    Re: sundown sub question

    The JL would push them but if I remember right that's not a 1 ohm stable amp. I believe it's 1.5 ohm. So you're going to have to get 2 2 ohm subs to run them at 2 ohm as opposed to 2 4 ohm that you could run at 1 ohm. Why don't you look in the classifieds here for something that's around 1200-1500 watts @ 1 ohm? Something like an AQ, Sundown, Crescendo, Skar, etc. The list is pretty endless. Not to mention that JL is expensive!

    Re: sundown sub question

    get an apsm 2000 for $170

    ---------- Post added at 08:55 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:54 AM ----------

    or the apsm 1500 for $125, apsm is slightly lower on wattage so the 2000 might work better

    As long as your electrical is up to snuff I'd say giving them 600-900 daily shouldn't be a problem.....

    as mentioned earlier, get the D2 SA10's and wire them to 2 ohms on the JL 1000/1 and you are good to go with 6-700w ea. Good amp choice, especially considering ohm rise vs power output.

    ps..the RF 800's are good amps, but considering the age, I would be hesitant of running them bridged at 2 ohms...lots of heat and the JL is sooo much more efficient.

    Re: sundown sub question

    I think, IIRC, it was the whatchamacallit technology that reduces output under heavy clipping instead of complete amp shut-down like most amps do.

    Re: sundown sub question

    for the price of the jl id rather get a couple other amps that will push the sa's to their max

    SAZ-1500D V2 SUNDOWN AUDIO AMP 3000 W MAX SUB AMPLIFIER | eBay
    (-NEW-) American Bass VFL 100.1 Competition Mono Amp 1500 Watts RMS W/ Bass Knob | eBay

    and the list goes on, can even buy an american made mmats amp

    Re: sundown sub question

    to me i would much rather if you are willing to spend that much moey on an amp

    Sub Woofers - SoundSolutionsAudio - GCON - SSA STORE
    much better subs built in the us vs a china sub
    3 inch coil and better low end extension

    with the american bass amp.

    i would contact @mylows10 ; before you buy anything. he can give you a great deal on everything with warranty

    but that american bass amp will be better suited and the gcon is just a better sub

    http://www.vertexaudio.com/store/pc/...190.htmanother 3 inch coil sub that to me is a better deal than the sa
