5 channel amp buying advice

Recommended Posts

i am wanting to use a 5 channel in my crew cab truck do to ease use an install. i have 3 models picked out an i'm not sure wich one is the better amp. i'm running a set of 4Ω components in the front doors and a set of 4Ω coaxials in the rear doors and i am running 2 12s at 1Ω. any advice would be welcomed an a great help as i have never used any of these brands before.

 

this is my first choice and the one i am leaning toward.

Db Drive A32250.5 5-channel 245.00

4 Ω @ 14.4 VOLTS: 4x 150 Watts

2 Ω @ 14.4 VOLTS: 4 x 300 Watts

1 Ω @ 14.4 VOLTS: 1 x 1000 Watts

 

second choice

Soundstream TA5.1250 5 Channel 275.00

4Ω @ 14.4 VOLTS 75 x 4 + 325 x 1

2Ω @ 14.4 VOLTS 125 x 4 + 500 x 1

1Ω @ 14.4 VOLTS 750x1

 

third choice

Massive Audio NX5 Nano Block Series 5-Channel 299.99

4Ω 14.4 VOLTS 120 watts x 4 chan. + 200 watts x 1 chan.

2Ω 14.4 VOLTS 240 watts x 4 chan. + 400 watts x 1 chan.

Hi, I have a massive audio P950.5 for sale if you'd be interested. Very similar power ratings, feel free to shoot me a PM

I would take the specs regarding the 1ohm operation above with a grain of salt. And the specs for the amps above look completely inflated to me, specially db drive and massive audio nx5. If you need such tough iron, I suggest you get a mono amplifier + a cheap 4-channel. I'd recommend Alpine MRP-F300 ($140 Class D 4-channel amp) or PPI P900.4 (4 channel amp, more power, slightly more expensive) + either Soundstream TN1.1200D or PPI Phantom P1000.1 (same board used in both, ~1200watts RMS at 1ohm).

You can get the Precision Power amps on here from me.

 

I do not recommend running any of those amps at 1 ohm on the sub channel. That's a lot of heat to potentially build up in a chassis with dual power supplies, and usually you have to pay a lot more to get a really good 5 channel amp that takes that abuse. You would be better off with those choices if you design the system to use a 2 ohm load on the sub channel. In theory it's only a 3 dB loss of output by cutting the power in half.

 

I would pass on that OBCON box you have listed in your signature. A generic ported box is a bad idea. You might have someone nearby who can design and build a really good ported box to perfectly fit out of the way.

i have already bought obcon box. i got it from a friend who had the same truck as me, an it sounded good with only 600 watts going to the kickers. i'm not a bass head i listen to mainly metal and hard rock so i'm not gonna push the sub channel to hard.
