Extra Power

Recommended Posts

I've heard of many subs being stable past their reccommended RMS wattage and wonder how much of a difference is actually made. Ive got two JL 12w3v3 subs with a Cadence ZRS 7000D amp and Was wondering if I wired it down to 1 ohm (pushing 650 RMS to each sub rather than the reccommended 500 RMS) how damaging this would be to the subs or if there would be a significant enough increase in sound. I figure the gains and sub levels on my HU would have to be kept low to run smoothly at extra power. Since I've heard of it being done I figured I'd ask before I went on and ended up blowing my subs haha. Thanks

There peak is 600 to be exact.. As far as how much power they can hold well there is only one real way to find out but it might end up costing u some money lol. I would say a good clean 800 to the pair would be about all I would mess with. Also depends on what kinda box u are using..

I wouldnt go much over 500 with those. Someone is selling a blown w3 in the classifieds and those have tiny voice coils. I'd say 1.75in or so, they seem too small to be 2in.

      Ok, so first off,I am new. Here's what I got.
      2 JL Audio W3 15s. (15w3d4) in sealed box. 1.91 cubic ft/chamber
      1 Power Acoustik Bamf 2000 Mono
      8 Gauge from battery to amp.
       
      This was my starter system, and it just isnt enough!
      I really wanted to go with one Orion HCCA 12.4.. I could get one for 300. But then I realized with the 4 ohm coils, how in the world could I get this thing 2000 watts??
       
      My second option would be an mtx 9500 but, a lot of people say these really do kind of suck
       
      My 3rd option was 2 RE SE 12s in a ported box. Anyone think this is good? Also? could you recommend an amp? I want more bump, and I'm on about a 600 dollar budget. Help!

      I really want a single 13'' setup, since I heard my friend's single JL 13W3 in his suburban. Will the Focal compare or be better? and I currently have two kenwood w2511 in a ported box running on a Planet Audio 650.1. What would you recomend?

      Im Looking to do a new set up with either all xd amps or hd amps. Interested in HD 600/4, HD 750/1, XD600/1, XD400/4. I have $600 to spend on the pair of amps, just let me know what you have.
