Hey everybody, I've received good advice here in the past and am back for more...
So, here's my situation:
I'm running 4 12" Fosgate Punch HE's. They were powered by a fosgate bd1000.1 (1000W Mono). The amp quit on me so I replaced it with this "ProAcoustic" 1600W 2 channel amp (see pic). I've never heard of this brand and can't find any info on the amp. I guess my first question would be, Can anyone provide the specs for this thing?
Also, since I've had this new amp installed, the subs put out great bass for about 5 min, then it starts to cut out and then completely quit...and the protect light on the amp illuminates...
I took it to a local shop for some advice and they suggested instead of bridging, to run 2 subs to one channel and the other two subs to the second channel.. They're saying it's an problem with ohms. I'm not yet convinced that this will fix my problem, so wanted to run it by the community here before I start rewiring.
I know the previous amp I used (Fosgate bd1000.1) was stable at 2 ohms, and I believe the way the subs are wired, it should be running at 2 ohms?? All four are wired in sequence (+&- from terminal to first sub, +&- from first sub to second sub, and so on)
Is there a different way I should be wiring the subs together in the box?
I'd be happy to provide anymore information that would help you help me...ANY help is appreciated.
