alight i got a question for all ya, i have 2 HC 15s that are rated at 1200rms and i was thinking bout getting 2 visoniks 900xd to push them. if i wire them separatly at 1 ohm, so each sub gets 1500rms, will that be to much?

thanks

Ya that should be fine, I wouldn't think twice about doing that as long as you set it up right.

I am giving 1 HC 15 1200 RMS right now and it is more than fine, I gave my Type R's 600 RMS each they loved it //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

Just set the gains right and you will be ok. But just so you know, save a bit of cash for a hearing aid. You might need one after putting 2 HC 15's in your car :p

Never used those amps but I'm sure it'll be ok. Like everyone else said just be careful with the gains. RE's subs are usually underrated on the power handling side of things. Definitly a good product.

The way I understand it, that will be BETTER. I always took it that if your amplifier is a little over your subs RMS handling then your peaks on the songs you play will be cleaner. If you max out your amp then your peaks may get distorted. Something like that.

"Headroom" is a good thing.

I still don't understand how you think that you should be able to sit in the car with that much power going through your subs... If you are maxing out even a smallish sub amp while sitting in the car, then you either have serious problems with your system or serious problems with your hearing.

Ha! I hear ya.

I have a Hifonics 1500D pushing a Crystal CMPx2 15 in a vented box, and I will not listen to it anywhere close to full blast without earplugz in. AND thats just if I'm showing off. If I'm doing regular listening I have to turn my HU's SLA(Subwoofer Level Adjustment) to negative 5 Atleast.

I forgot if you said sealed or ported, or if you mentioned at all. But if they will be ported/vented with that much power, you will be deaf shortly.

LOL

I had two Skar amps (4ch & a monoblock) go bad within a year. Post #2 is an excellent recommendation.

I replied to your other thread. Id look at Infinity Kappas for the money on 6x9 components and an amp. But I would have chosen the kenwood over the Kickers of the two. Kappas for the win.
