umm ok heres the deal, im looking for two 12's or 1 15 inch sub that is under $400, im going for spl, but basicly i just want it loud and to sound descent, i have a 1200watt mono amp stats are VISONIK DIGITAL X CLASS V718XD * 1200 Watt Digital Amplifier
Rms Power @ 14.4V DC 1 x 500W @ 4 Ohm 1 x 600W @ 2 Ohm 1 x 900W @ 1 Ohm
Rms Power @ 17V DC 1 x 600W @ 4 Ohm 1 x 900W @ 2 Ohm 1 x 1200W @ 1 Ohm
im not sure if my alternator is 13.8, im drivining a 2000 honda accord, 4 cylinder, with 4 doors, i dont know how i would figure otu my alternators V, and i bought the amp alrdy and it sounds pretty good
yea, but if you offer subs that have 1500 RMS, and he'll be pushing out around 800 RMS because its "900RMS @ 1 ohm at 14 Volts" he'll be underpowering them and it might sound good but it wouldn't be that loud? right?
thx guys, i was looking in to the havoc, but i was afraid i might underpower it so much that it wont be too loud?? but i dont know too much about this stuff so do you think that the havoc on that amp would get the job done, because eventually i will get a better amp
Just because a sub is rated at 1500rms doesnt mean that it won't be loud at 800 rms. And in the future he can eventually get a bigger amp and won't have to worry about having to get new subs. Its just a suggestion. A 12 inch XX.X at 300 watts rms will play about as loud as a kicker cvr at the same wattage level. Even to the XX.x Can handle 1600 rms. It might be a waste, but it could also save him money in the future.
A single 15inch havoc will destroy a pair of m3's in spl. And still sound good doing it. If you were to purchase the M3's, you could not get a bigger amp unless you also upgraded your subs. For 25$ more the havoc is a better deal. IMO
the memphis subs might be too expensice, because i was just lookin at them, and they are quite hefty in price, i haven ever heard of memphis can anyone explain if they are they great and like what they can be compared to??
Memphis makes some very nice equipment. But for the price the Havoc is a better deal. Both companies have good build quality. Those M3's handle 300 watts apiece. The Havoc handles 1500 watts. I would go for the Havoc due to the fact that you are looking for spl.
umm that looks like a pretty good system, but im not gonna go adn sell my amp for only 50$, im pretty sure i cant get more cause retail value of it is somwhere around 350$ but i havent heard much about this crystal comp brand or what brand of sub u linked, are they good as treo or better and what about ascendant audio, how do they compare
clipping is when a signal, which looks like a wave, is amplified so that the top and bottom are cut off, or "clipped" off, so the signal is no longer clear. this will cause extra heat on the VCs and will blow your sub. by turning the gains up too much or turning the volume up too much on your Hu you can clip a signal. and as far as crystal.... great sub, chauncy has heard them and is in love with them. ive only read reviews and have yet to read a bad one. if you can get a Treo TSX 15 that would be great too. ... and your not going to get 350 for that amp... sorry.
What trevor said. Crystal and Ascendant are to great companies, but I wouldn't compare them to Treo. The TSX or the havoc are your two best bets IMO. And you def. won't get any where neat 350 for that amp. Maybe 200 if you ebay it. probally closer to 100.
nick- are you saying crystal and ascendant arent up to Treos level? dollar for dollar i think they are... but of course Treo has super subs that handle TONS of power... they are also a fortune though..
