You can use just one of the outputs. You won't leave anything on the table for power. No HIfonics isn't exactly known for quality equipment these days as far as some of them go. However he is wrong in his assessment period.

Next he will claim he knows more about amplifiers then Sundown, DD, Soundqubed, MMats and so on.

Lot's of 3k options out there from the half-bridge Korean stuff to the full bridge stuff from Sundown, Taramps and a few others.
Thank you bro. You're a big help... thank you.

I know I'm asking for a lot after already getting so much help but can you guys suggest a good 3000 watt 1 ohm amp? Was considering hifonics then I found Sundown but saw a ton of reviews about them overheating from a ton of people so now I don't know what to go with.. please suggest me a good 3000 watt 1 ohm amp lol money isn't really an issue. I'd like to keep it under 6 or 700 though.

I sold HF amps in the mid-90s when they were good. $94.95 for “600 watts” tells you something.
Pyramid crap comes to mind.

Bought this and two 12” Alpine Rs for a c-note.

So? You want a Bozo Button for selling those back then?

Regardless you are wrong that all amplifiers that have double inputs are pyramid like garbage. And if you read what I said Hifonics isn't exactly known for quality these days anymore.

What amp are you using? Car amps don't just have "double outputs" that are wired internally unless they are Pyramid crap type of equipment.
Multiple outputs means multiple channels. Leaving them unused means you have amplifier power not being used.
So you're wrong.

Lots of options in the 600-700 range for a good Korean Half-Bridge if you got the room. Which Sundown amps are overheating? Some of the older ones had some minor issues but not many.

Will take a look around later on after dinner. I'm sure some of the other guys will chime in as well for that kind of price range.

What channels exactly are listed on the “double outputs” on these mono amplifiers?
And how many mono amps run multiple channels?

I have a Taramps Smart 3K that I'm very happy with. I'm just a novice but it was very easy install and works great on 2, 12's. I watched a dyno test of this amp is what sold me on it. Check youtube for Smart 3K dyno if you want.

More mono amps offer 2 positive and 2 negative output terminals (it looks like 2 channels but its not) then not...it's just for making it easier and give more wiring options...my mono amp has 4 terminals...I'm running a 4 ohm sub off each terminal and the amp sees a 2ohm final load...

That's a Sundown sia monoblock...

Thank you. Speaker connection. Not outputs.
Like a terminal block. Same output, easier connection for dual subs.

Just to jump in here in the middle of this interesting small debate... sundown over hifonics correct? Also I found this beautiful ****** orion amp for almost 800... im assuming the orion is the way to go if I can added the almost $900 for it? If not then sundown? No hifonics though correct? Lol. Also thank you guys all so much for all the help. Love this place.

Sundown over hifonics. Orion is touchy as I’m not sure you’ll get much support if needed.

I thought I was done with the questions but here's 1 more... on this sundown amp for the rca inputs it just says input and output.. how do I know which is the left and which is the right for the rca? Input would be red and output black or white or...? I'm probably going to go with this amp and I'm just trying to figure this out awhile before waiting until I get it.

I believe you'd need a y connector and only plug in the input...I'm assuming the output is for sending a signal to another amp...
