What is the sub rated at? if your amp is rated at 600 RMS @1 OHM that means if your sub is a 1 OHM sub you will get the full power of the amp. Usually with Orion amps the more subs you put on them the more powerfull the amp gets, but for one sub it will work but I don't think it will push it all that great. Get 2 subs wire them into a 2 OHM load and the amp will push hard, get 3 subs wire them into a 1 OHM load and the amp will be at peak power (RMS).
seriously.. i admit i am no techno guy but c'mon Matt !
if its 600w @ 1 ohm then how can it possibly give you more rating at 2 ohm ?
adam horn.. if the subs a dual 2ohm (i assume since you chose your amp that is 1ohm stable) then wire it in parallel to get the 1ohm load.. of course you know that, and yes the 600w @ 1ohm amp from Orion is one of the better amps out there.. will push them for good ! but you def could go for a 800w - 1000w amp (keeping your settings in safe limits) to slam 'em when you need.
ok thanks guys one more question i just changed my power wire and my ground wire to 4 gauge and everything is connected reall nice and the ground wire is grounded good but when hook my sub my amp gets power and my sub just barely hits do u know why this would be? mean it bbbaaarely hits my door speakers over come the sub
I mean that the amp is rated @ 600W (RMS) @ 1 OHM, It can take a 1 OHM load where as most amps will only handle a 2 OHM load, his sub is probable a 4 OHM sub so he is not going to get the full potential of the amp unless he runs more than one sub and wires them parallel to a 1 OHM load. Your amp is to small for one sub, like I said the more subs you put to it the more powerfull it will get and yes if you wire a dual voice coil sub parallel to each other it will be a 1 OHM load to the amp.
