I am buying a 12w7 on thursday in a HO box,now i need to buy a 3 ohm amp. When i look for amps if it says for example 1200 watts at 2 ohms and 900 watts at 4 ohms, does it mean that it is around 1050 watts at 3 ohms???
yeh just aroudn around that amount, but it can differ, because that amp you mentioned above has funny power loads. usually if an amp is 900w rmswatts at 4 ohm its usually at 2 ohms around 1800rms watts. So at 3 ohms theres no way to tell exactly how much power is going to go to the subs but it should be anywhere from 900-1200 rms which is okay for that sub
#1) I'd save up the money for the JL 1000/1 amp or even a JL 500/1. #2) If you really can't afford getting a quality amp after spending all that money on the box and sub, I'd go with the MTX amp over the Viper amp.
Well i am getting the sub in the box from a friend for a very low price, The JL amp is what, 700 bucks, thats alot of money for a amp. Out of my price range. I have to find an amp for around 300-400 bucks. And i went to a MTX dealer and they said that the mtx amp is too powerful for a w7. Any suggestions please on other amps in that price range that would work well please tell me. thanks
