I have one of these in a sealed 1.5 cuft. box:
I am looking for an amplifier, but it's hard to find many that can drive an 8 ohm sub at its prescribed wattage. Can someone please help me by recommending an amplifier that will suffice? (I would like an easy way to control it from the driver's seat) Or perhaps I am misunderstanding the impedance factor and can buy an "under-rated" amp? I am very new to this. Also, I am after quality sound, not "loudness." Cheers.

Thanks for the rec. Looks like a good value, but I'm seeing some reviews that say the quality is poor below 40hz. Hearsay or fact?

Sell off that 8 ohm sub and get yourself a Dayton Audio sub from Partsexpress. Nobody runs 8 ohms in their car/truck.

Thinking about one of these three. Would welcome outside opinions.

Taramps MD1800 4 ohm.

I would find a different woofer though.

It's for home theaters. 8 ohms. Super low FS.

If you stick with that 8 ohm sub, then, the Taramps MD1800.1 4 ohm version will be plenty strong enough at 8 ohms (1,050 watts). The amp doesn't create the low Bass, the box and speaker do.

These amps are flea market junk. If you value your money, want true watts and reliability.. stay away! I prolly would use a good old 2-ch bridged for a 8ohm sub but selling/trading is the best option for you imo. Eminence drivers are also used in stack speakers.. surely there's someone out there who wants to punish his mom. Meanwhile you can still use it if you already have a box.
