First Some Background
I have a single amp set up with 2 12's. It is drastically underpowered. The amp is much better suited for the rear speakers
So, I am going to put that amp onto my 6x9's. But then I will need a new amp for my subs. So, I have heard from some people that It is ok to buy an off brand amp for subs but not for small speakers. I have a rockford goign to my 6x9's, is this at all true. Is it harder to hear poor sound on subs? Have i been bs'd. I don't want to spend hundreds on a new amp but I don't want to have a crappy system. Help
The subs are 4 ohm, 300 rms, and 900 max (any suggestions would be tight)
I would just look for a 2 Channel amp tha puts out around 200-300 watts rms.
I had a Kenwood 600 watt (max) 2 Channel running 2 12" subs with no problem.
First of all the 6X9's need to be able to handle the watts RMS of the old amp and the amp should have the LPF turned off.
Second, to get the best performance form those subs find either a 300 watt RMS X 2 @ 4 ohm amp and run each sub to each channel...
get a mono amp that's 600 watts RMS @ 2 ohm.
Also don't forget to set the gains right.
The purpose of the gain is to match the signal volts RMS from the head unit (or source) to the amplifier input, nothing else.
Here is a guide to help you set the gain correctly:
You'll need Microsoft Excel, a multi-meter (AC volt meter) and a way to burn an audio CD from an MP3.
If you don't have Excel let me know and I'll send you a condensed version. email@example.com
