    Will my amp and sub work together.

    Hello everyone. My dad gave me some stereo gear for my birthday, but im afraid it may not work. Its a Alpine SWR-10D2 10" sub, the newest model rated at 1000RMS, 2ohm DVC and a Hifonics GLX1400.1D amplifier, CEA rated at 1400RMS at 1ohm. Will this amp overpower that sub? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Its going in a small ported box in a truck ,about 1.1cfu i think

    It'll work fine. Wire your sub to 1 ohm and set your gains with a DMM to make sure you aren't clipping it and you're good to go.

    You'll be fine music is dynamic so unless you plan on listening to test tones the sub will likely never see 1400 watts.

    what he said...and with those amps, if you cannot provide 14.4 steady volts to the amp, then the amp will not produce the rated output anyways.

    Re: Will my amp and sub work together.

    Ive always given My subs almost double rated. Just takes some common sense if you want longevity. You'll be fine, just don't clip it and keep your nose alert.

    Really? Common sense doesn't work for you? I listen to moderate volume most the time and so running double rated is fine for me. I've blown 1 sub in 8 years and it was expected as I was ready to upgrade so I pushed it hard. I can't help it if you blow your **** left and right running over rated power. Or maybe you need to buy better subs.

    Re: Will my amp and sub work together.

    Set gains by DMM method. Personally, I would have preferred the D4 version so it can be wired for 2ohm impedance. Some entry level amplifiers still do not have good efficiency running at 1ohm.
