I just bought 3 Rockford Fosgate 10" Stage 2 Punch. They are each 8 ohm single voice coil and 200 watt rms. do i need a 600 watt rms amp or only a 200 watt rms amp. i was told i needed a 600 watt amp but i am not sure??
yes something that is underrated a tad such as the amps I mentioned would be better. You are not going to get quite 600 watts out of a amp that is 600 watts x 1 at 2ohms being your nominal impedence will be 2.66 ohms, it will be a tad lower. I recomend the jl and kicker for 2 different reasons. The JL is 500 watts(underrated) at 1.5ohms-4ohms it is a regulated power supply meaning it does not fluctuate with difference in voltage input or lower impedence's. Now the kicker 600.1 is rated at 600 watts at 2ohms at 12 volts, now this is a unregulated power supply which will gain power with the more voltage that is supplied. so at 2.66 on the jl and kicker you will see pretty close to 600 out og both of them.
I have a 208watt deck, 75rms 225w pop rear speakers 4 ohm 2 10" 300watt rms 1000w pop subs, 4 ohm dual voice coil I need to know what EXACT type of amp needed(IE. 1,2, or 4 channel amp how many watts rms? should i bridge? I am planning on running it in a paralell thing... should i get 1 or 2 amps?
gfnixcbnl....that radio will never see that power and it will be distorted power at best. You will need a 1ohm mono amp that does around 600-1000w, and prob need a 4 channel for a cleaner sound on internal speakers
If you have a 600w amp, unless it is rated at a normal voltage, the amp will not put out what it says, Example, most amps are rated at 14.8 volts, alos the ohm load that you have it is going to be real difficult to get 600w out of it. You need an amp that is stable at 1-4ohms and at 11.5-14.8volts, like the JL or the Pheonix gold xeon.
