So what is the actual MAX safe power? The reason I ask is because some are very under rated and some are very over rated. I was also told not to go over the 1000rms rating and I have heard that person is full of it too, lol.. Polo.
I gave the SX 1000w RMS (probably closer to 1100w RMS) and it took it easily.
Remember, power handling is based on the enclosure, install, listening habits,etc... Also, knowing what you're doing plays a big role.
Based off of my experience, I think it could take 1600w RMS. However, the gains from the extra wattage would not be worth it, IMO, for a daily setup. There are plenty of other ways to get more out of the sub while keeping the same power. That amp is great and is pushing the sub just fine. I just dont think changing amps would be worth the time and money.
RE recommends 1000-1200RMS. I'm not quite sure what to think right now because I blew one or my SX15s and its only running off a Vega EXL1000D @ 14.4v. Soon as I have time I'm going to pull the sub out and see what happened. Might have just been a faulty sub.
No H/O alt was on yet. I'm running one Optima Yellow Top plus the stock battery with 0awg wiring to a distribution block splitting it into two 4awg per amp. I'm uncertain exactly what the settings were but as soon as I get my truck back later today I'll post it.
