2 Sundown SA-8 D2 (each wired to 2 ohms)
Kenwood KAC-9105D 1800 watt amp w/ 4 gauge wiring kit
Alpine CDE 121 HU
Here is my issue.
Amp shows it is receiving power but the subs are not on. I know this could be many different issues, but I believe this is a loose RCA cable in the headunit. I checked the ground and there are not loose wires, the gain is properly set and the subs are not fried (aka blown voice coil). Is this a proper assumption to make? Also I am aware that the factory RMS is 500 watts but I am also under the impression that these subs were built for abuse. How many watts above the RMS value would it be safe to go?
