    Orion h2 + Hifonics 1800

    Well for my first actual sub setup for myself I think ive finally decided on going with a 15" Orion H2 with a Hifonics 1800. I just wanted to ask a few questions before i started ordering everything. First what guage power and ground do i need to buy? Next, will the H2 be ok at 1 ohm with the hifonics pushing 1800? I would need to get the dual 2 ohm h2 correct? Last, would anyone be interested in designing a box? I can build it, but im a little shaky on the design. If you are interested just pm me and i can tell you more about what im lookin for. I can send you 5.00 paypal if anyones interested.

    Re: Orion h2 + Hifonics 1800

    Got a H2 15" Dual 2 ohm myself powered by an orion 1200 d. If the amp is 1 ohm stable, you're correct about getting the dual 2 ohm (wire the sub in parallel). I'm not sure about the wire gauge you need for that amp, it sounds like 1/0 gauge for 1800 watts, but it could be 4 gauge, search at their website and they probably got it listed. Go to orioncaraudio.com and look at the specifications for the H2, they got recommended box sizes for different power and all the info you need to make your own box. I got a net 2.25 cubic foot ported tuned to 33 hz with 28 in^2 port area and it sounds pretty good.

    that amp will never make 1800 watts. and you can use 2 gauge
