    Which 10s should I use?

    I have a 4 channel Alpine amp (MRV-F545) that I want to use to drive two 10s in a sealed enclosure. The amp can be configured to operate in 3 or 4 channel mode. Unfortunately, it can't be configures to operate in 2 channel mode. I'm looking at the E10 V.3 subs, but I'm not quite sure how much power each VC can handle. If I get the D4s, I could hook up all 4 channels @ 125 watts per VC. Using the D2s, the amp would be pushing 250 watts per VC connected in stereo. The mono channel is good for 500 watts into 4 ohms, which is the same amount of total power both subs would see if I use the D4s and hook them up in stereo. Obviously, using the D2s and hooking them up in stereo would double my power, but I don't know if these subs can handle this much power. Can they?

    The subs will handle that amp. But sell that amp and get a nice mono block amp. Like a 1000watt

    It's a 4 channel. Your printout is wrong. Only 3 and 4 can bridge. It's not producing 1000 watts on 2 channels. Not happening ever

    someone fked up on the bench then...

    your amp only does 500 watts if you bridge channel 3 and 4 together.

    channel 1 and 2 are only 125 watts and 250 if bridged.

    You only have enough power to fully power 1 sundown Ev3 10. if you want a better match, look at skar ix 10s or jbl gt5s because two sundown Ev3 10s will be underpowered and barely tickled.

    People run 1200 watts to a pair of sundown E series with no problems as long as they arent being stupid with the amplifier gain/head unit settings.



    09 Sienna Subs : Four Team Ascendant 18s......Sub amp: Two Taramps 15k
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS................................Mids/Highs amp: CT 500.2, ppi 600.2, ppi 900.4 bridged
    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    It's rated at 4 X 250 into 2 ohms (in stereo, not bridged)...4 X 250 = 1000...I'm not going to bridge it, I'm going to run it in stereo...
