ignore soundstorm and power craptastik.

sundown is very good, as is AQ.

MB quart, ehh... so-so.

^ (meaning yeah this, or what he said above)
x2 (meaning times two, or I agree.)
^2 (meaning "squared" or to the power of two, when a superset character isn't available, such as when stating "XBL^2")

hifonics 200dor the quivalent to the new year wich changes the las letters or numbers...

pros:
it will give you nice clean afordable power
will match your solos
better than anything you mentioned
they are very realiable
small form factor
nice features

cons:
they will produce about 5-8% than rated


IMHO they will be great amps for the solos

they are alil bit uneficient but great overall i heard this amp well the bxi2006d wich i owned a few myself and really great amps they are the same as the new ones but redesigned heat sink..

you can go wrong with the hifonics

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_22702_Hifonics+HFi2000D.html

also keep in my your electrical system..

if you have a car expect to have a maximun of a 70 amp alt if you have a truck maximun of 90 amps on most average vehicles

take 30-50 amps that your car consume for ecm,lights,emission system,radio,indor lighting,ac,defroster,4x4, dash panel and any other electrical part of the vehicle

so

truck 90-50 = 40
car 70-40= 30

regular car has 14.4 of voltage

you available average power you can have is around
truck 576 watts rms
car 432 watts rms

so i suggest you get a nice amp that is very well built like in my suggestion i will keep in mind the hifonics

the reason why i said that is because the hifonics will be a nice amp to have and will get you to have some extra cash to spend on your electrical system such as alternators etc....also they are very costly IMHO and theres a reason why because they are mostly underated and yes well built but i will keep in mind the hifonics because you want regular loud nice bass for everyday and not competition wise..

1770 may be pushing it i would not go to far past 1300 with out playing with an o-scope or knowing what clipping sounds like.

ya that 1770 is more likely at a .5 ohm load, and thats what it could do before it blew fuses.
but you can expect a good 14 to 1500 at 1 ohm from that sundown. its really sundowns best bargain
that is the sae.. im not a fan of the new sax.. more money and does less power..

I just want to make sure I can hook up 2 - dual 4 ohm vc subs to run on 1 ohm from the amp. And would this be running (vc 1 pos. to vc 2 pos) and (vc1 neg. to vc 2 neg.) ? Also, how do you get down to .5 ohm?!

yes you can do 2 dual 4 ohm subs to a 1 ohm load.
pos to pos of both subs, and lets say pos of sub 1 to the pos of the amp
next neg to neg of the 2 subs. and for sub 2 wire the neg to the neg of the amp..
make sense? also check with a dmm just to know what you are for sure at.
to get to .5 ohm is 2 dual 2 ohm subwoofers, or there any ways to get to it with multiple subwoofers.. 3 or more or you can get close to .5 ohms
those are basically generic numbers, most subs coils do need read exact even numbers, most dual 4 ohm subs coils will sit anywhere from 3.5 to 4.5 ohms each

yea haha i was getting confused. Does it matter which vc you hook to the amp ? is there a dif. in vc 1 and vc 2 ?

Seems like I should hook the vc 1 wires to the amp and connect pos to neg of vc 2.

ask Jacob hes the owner of sundown, also you don't want to run .5ohm load for a daily setup. let alone without some hella electrical upgrades. Jacob's email should be sundownz at sundownaudio.com.

stick with a one ohm load and you wont blow any thing up.

I have a question regarding the hookup of 2 4ohm dvc. Do I hook the amp up to both the vc 1 terminals or do I hook the amp to the pos. of vc1 and the neg. of vc 2 ?

Id get the Soundstorm or power Accoustic both are pretty much the same amp but they will both give you double the power of the AQ or Sundown amps....

I already checked out 12 volt . com and It doesn't specicy between vc1 and vc 2. Kicker does, apparently, on the quick-connects, so it must be kinda important, huh.

it does not matter eather coil can be coil 1 or 2 they just do that for noobs and stupid people.

pos to pos, neg to neg or pos to neg ect ect. just fallow the wireing guide there only labeled so people dont think neg is one side and pos is the other. pos and neg theres 1 on each side.

power acoustic claims 3200 w at 1 ohm but still seems a lil ambitious. It's going to be great tho when I tell folks its a 1200 watt sundown amp, they never heard of sundown, and they will think: o a crap brand 1200. They may have a 1500 or 2500 power acoustik or sony or lanzar or what have you, but when it comes listening time, their ears will orgazm in my truck

looking at it, its probably closer to 2k not sure how clean the signal would be but as far as just pure math goes thats where it sits.

also having "System distress indicator" in the features makes me lol.

well their marketing works, i bet when you first started getting into stereo's you stayed away from jl audio, because their $100 sub is only rated at 200 watts, but you can just go get a different sub for $80 and its a 1200 watt sub, so of course your going to buy the 1200 watt one because you think it will be louder.
then when you look up reviews all you see are great things. like ya my 2000 watt amp is sooo loud it broke my back window, and its louder than my buddies system who has 2 15s
people are very smart in their marketing and it sure does work, almost every single beginner into car stereo will fall for one of these garbage companies false marketing

My amp at 8 ohms would be an excellent match, and leave headroom for upgrades.

Troy that amp is... well its the bomb. wait about 2 yrs and I will be able to afford it. I figured 1700 wrms would be pushing it, but it will be the best name amp i have owned to date, after such catastrophies as logic, legacy, sony xplod 222 (which is a DAMM tough amp btw) and volfenhager
