    i am going to have roughly 500w rms running to my sub amp (kx400.1) and i want to know if im goin to get any major dimming/voltage loss during LOUD BASS HITS!?!?!

    only way to know is to try & see. I had very noticeable dimming on my car with only 600 watts rms prior to the big 3, & my intake manifold gasket replacements



    best sig of all time
