I am most likely going to purchase 2 Pioneer Premier TS-W5000SPL subwoofers, and I need to know what kind of amp I should use to power them with. They handle 2000 rms, 5000 peak, and are Dual 4 ohm subs. What I want to know is should I get an amp (or multiple amps) that run 4000 rms x 1 channel @ 1 ohm, 2000 rms x 2 channels @ 2 ohm, or 2000 rms x 2 channels @ 4 ohm? My past systems only had one sub and one amp, like the Audiobahn Immortal (decent sound, poor durability) and a MA Audio HK401SX. I have a pretty good budget, and am looking at Memphis and Rockford Fosgate mainly to get the amps neccessary. Thanks
my friend has a lower series, maybe the ts-w3004spl, and they hit pretty hard. If you wanna suggest something else go ahead, I just need to know how the amps and subs are set up as far as channels and outputs go, so I can figure out what all to buy. It's just that the 2 ts-w5000spl subs are decently cheap, handle a lot of power, and don't take up a lot of space.
I'm not looking for advice on what amp to buy, I just wanna know how the hookup between amp and subs works. Each sub will have a 2 ohm impedance, for a 1 ohm total load. Can I run both off a single channel running at 1 ohm? Or do I need to find something running at 2 channels, with each channel being 2 ohms? Thanks
what amp do you think your going to run, run it at 1ohm, and it needs to be the 4001bd for fosgate and for memphis the 4000w amp with the bridge module @a 1ohm load. it will be the most efficient way to run them. hard to find a 2 channel that will support that much power needed.
So I can run two subs off one channel? I was looking at the Memphis amps and the Hifonics XX series, and I just wanted to be sure I can run a pair of subs with only one output channel before I make any decisions.
Yeah, I looked into the HO alternators, I'm gonna get one of them. Tell me anything you know about this amp and brand, if you dont mind: MA Audio HK802SX. It puts out 4400 RMS @ 1 ohm bridged. It says high current, I dont know what that refers to, does it just mean it will draw more from the alternator? Anyway, check it out at
