    I have an ns-1 which is 6500 watts rms on my 12" zv4's. They're taking that amp pretty well which is way above what the subs are rated at. But I also put another amp which did a little over 2000 watts which was under powering the subs and they we're still insanely loud off that power. So my point is you'll be fine and it should get plenty loud giving them rated power. You'll be happy with those x's with a good efficient enclosure.

    your 1250 per sub would be perfect. They are built to perform best at their rated power level but are also built to take the extra abuse of more power.

    Nice name and I don't see them falling part easily unless they were abused or you're talking about the glue issue that was resolved already.

    Yes and without fear of breaking anything. Your gains from over-powering are minimal while increasing the risk of breaking something exponentially.

    LOL. 20% increase of power will be inaudible. If you gained noticeable it's because you probably replaced a 2000W amp that didn't make rated power with a 2500W amp that makes around 3K.

    Yeah, when you tell China to make a sub for 200$ that would cost 700 to make in USA that's what you get. The race to zero. Still a lot of woofer for the money and actually something that isn't just off-the-shelf parts. Props to Jacob for pushing some different designs.

    FB Car Audio Q&A is the most riduculous group in history.

    Latest discussion... "which sub will get lower? A 10" or a 15"?"

    Not louder at a given frequency, mind you. Just... which one will play the lower frequency regardless of output.

    Oh... and I just heard that a DDZ can take 10k daily.

    I could see why this quote would irritate someone. To say a sub was poorly built because of a issue with glue is incorrect. That's like saying Toyota builds a crappy car because one of the parts they buy and use in the Camry are faulty. To this date, I have lost 3 SA-12's in my demo vehicle due to motors shifting. I spoke with Sundown Audio and was informed they did have a bad batch of subs. They are handling the situation and so far I am pleased. This incident has not changed my opinion of the SA series subs. I still believe the SA Series subs are some of the best subs in their category. When I upgrade to the X-12's my starting point to power them will be the rated power, will I give them more? absolutely.
