    sundown sa-12 d2 power and box?

    well i posted here a day or so ago asking about a couple of sub options and someone told me about sundowns, so i looked them and i want to try them. im looking at the sa-12 d2 i have a 1500rms @1 ohm or 1000rms at 2 ohm amp and a 1.85 ported box tuned 35hz would they sound alright until i built a new box a few months down the line when the weather gets better. i plan on running a single one on about 1000-1200rms at 1 ohm if you guys think it'll handle it in my current box.

    What kind of amp? As long as it is clean you can give them 1000+. If you are clipping it, 1000+ will not take long to kill it.

    Why just 1 sub? The higher the impedance the easier on your equipment. Assuming your hu is not clipping you could give it 1000 easy with no problem.

    Re: sundown sa-12 d2 power and box?

    plus im not looking for a pure spl build, i'd like to have some trunk space left in my car lol, and my amp probably doesn't give a true 1000rms at 2ohm but i know it will at 1 ohm. but does 1.8 cubes ar 35 hz seem in the ball park for a sa-12? i know the box shape can make a huge difference but just in general good size and port tune?

    You shouldnt have any issues as long as you set the gains correctly,and no clipping issues.There should be a sticky/info on how to set gains properly.I think you will be just fine,@1ohm load on the single dvc2ohm sub
