    SSA Dcon questions

    I recently ordered a 12 in dcon svc 4ohm I wanted to run a sealed box at 1.2 cubes until I had money to pay for a custom box. First do dcons perform well in sealed inclosures. And second I have come to understand that dcons are underrated in rms handling capabilities and supposedly will take 400 rms pretty good I had originally planned to buy the re audio dts1000.1 run it at 4 ohms with 310w rms but then I thought maybe it would be underpowered and noticed they have the re audio dts1500.1 which at 4ohms would give me 410w rms. Would this be bad for a daily driver I listen to music everytime I sit in my car would I blow the speaker with 410w rms???

    You will be completely fine as long as your gain is set correctly. You will most likely want to use a multimeter to do this. There is a sticky for setting amp gain here on the forum and plenty of videos on youtube.

    Re: SSA Dcon questions

    The Dcon works well in a ealed enclosure and will shine in the proper ported enclosure. I would look at better amps though, I have not been much of a fan of those amps and personally think you could find better for cheaper.

    Re: SSA Dcon questions

    get a 2 channel amp and bridge it @ 4 ohms, it is cheaper and you can get a better amp by doing so.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    What would be considered a good 2 chan amp and is it ok to play a bridged 2 chan amp every day ??? And remember I don't want to go much over 400w rms

    Re: SSA Dcon questions

    im not to sure on good 2 channel amps but yes you can run a 2 channel amp bridged all day long if your not clipping
