Sundown towns, also known as sunset towns, gray towns, or sundowner towns, are all-white municipalities or neighborhoods in the United States that practice a form of racial segregation by excluding non-whites via some combination of discriminatory local laws, intimidation or violence. The term came into use because of signs that directed "colored people" to leave town by sundown.Entire sundown counties and sundown suburbs were created as well. While the number of sundown towns decreased following the civil rights movement, some commentators hold that certain 21st-century practices perpetuate a modified version of the sundown town.Discriminatory policies and actions distinguish sundown towns from towns that have no black residents for demographic reasons. Historically, towns have been confirmed as sundown towns by newspaper articles, county histories, and Works Progress Administration files; this information has been corroborated by tax or U.S. census records showing an absence of black people or a sharp drop in the black population between two censuses.

    Sundown SIA-1750d - any good?

    So I just pulled the trigger on a sundown SIA-1750, which will be a replacement for my Skar RP-2000 that recently kicked the bucket.

    Hello I am looking to run three Skar VVX 12 dual 2 ohms. I will be using a Sundown SIA-3500D. These subs will most likely only pull 3k at the most but they will be wired to 1.33 ohms so i will definitely have enough power from my amp. I was wondering what size alternator I should get.

    SIA 1750 amp

    Is the SIA 1750 amp too much for a Sundown Sa-10. v2 D4 wired at 4ohms. The amp puts out 1250w rms at 4ohms and the D4 is rated at 1000w rms so I was wondering if I should go with the SIA 1250 or the SIA 1750.
