    Question about the Rl-p...

    Im helping a friend plan his system. He wants to do 1 12 for SQL. Right now we are thinking about doing 1 SS Rl-p ported.

    I have one question on powering it. We were looking at the Viper 1200.1. Would it be better to get the D4 and run the Viper at 700x1@2 or get the D2 and do it at 1200x1@1?

    Basically what is a good powerhandling for the rl-p??? I read somewhere that 750 is reccommended for the 15 so i figured that 700 should be pretty good for the 12.

    What does everyone think???
    Thanks in advance

    SS no longer has any dual 2 ohm voice coil subs so you would have to get the dual 4 which would actually be th ebetter match anyways. Anything from 500-900w is perfect for these.

    Icon30 Re: Question about the Rl-p...

    I usually advocate between 300-900wrms on a ported RL-p; 400-1200wrms on a sealed RL-p.

    Choice of power is always flexible.. dependent upon your enclosure constraints, goals, economy, and responsibility

    I should also note that there are no more D2 RL-p15's, and only one or two RL-p12 D2's left. After they're gone, they won't be coming back for quite some time, as I am streamlining to an all D4 voicecoil lineup, in order to save on my increasing overhead and be able to keep my retail prices as steady as possible.

    700wrms on an RL-p12 is more than enough to get it moving (and moving well).
    1200wrms is also doable, but really not necessary for the average listener.

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me directly or PM me here if you prefer.

    Good luck on your system!

    Who do we have to ruff up at TC Sounds to get you the LMT's???? And why did you go with dual 4's as opposed to dual 2's?

    Rollin, I actually asked a similar question in a different form but the consensus was basically, better for your amp to be at a low Ohm supplying half its total juice (1200 on tap but only using 700 by way of responsible volume control and low gains) as opposed to a higher load supplying max power (700 on tap and using 700 to the woofer)

    as long as you aren't clipping your amp it is going to be better for the sub at the lower power. Also, i believe most amps are more efficient at 2 ohms vs 1 ohm so the current being drawn from the amp runnig a 1 ohm could be more. Don't take my word on this though. The more I think about my last statement the more I think I am wrong.
