I've finally have my four door speakers(Kicker 6.75 csc67 100 rms)being powered by a 4 channel Kicker amp(Kicker 46cxa360.4, 65 rms x4). Now I am ready to add my Single Sundown Sa12d2(750 rms). Would the Kicker 46cxa800.1 mono amp or the Skar Audio RP-800.1D be a good choice? The Kicker 46cxa800.1 is 800 rms x 1 at 1 ohm and the Skar RP-800.1D is also 800 rms x 1 at 1 ohm, but the skar is over $100 cheaper.

I will pass on the Skar then, I like the Taramps, but it makes me nervous when a manufacturer only puts a max watt and not a rms watt.

Hey Sorry to threadjack but I’m only planning on running a ho alternator and a front agm. Will the taramps be okay on run from the battery to
The trunk in a normal sedan?

So you don't wire to 1ohm? Because of box rise? Need to rewire my sa12 then if I put it back in the trunk

Been running at 1ohm for a couple minths
View attachment 18300

Yes. Wire to 1 ohm. SAs are known to take 1k all day long but if you were to have too much power and its getting stinky without clipping its as easy as turning the gain down some. Always better to have headroom with amps.

Could you count on rise and wire to .5ohm? If that's the case I'm ordering another sa12 dvc 2ohm wiring to .5ihm and selling two barely used xfls lol

No. Do not wire to .5 on the Taramps amps other than the Bass line and the HD15k


I would suggest the Taramps MD3000 2 ohm model. Or the Bass 3000 if you have the electrical to support a 3k at half an ohm.

Does anybody have a opinion on the Kicker 46cxa800.1 amp for the sa12? It would match my 4 channel amp if it's a good mono amp.

why would u go from 2 xfls to 2 sundown sa.......to me that is not a upgrade i had both and i would choose the xfls all day...more power handling plays more notes and digs deeper in the same box....
