Re: Amps for subs

You have one of those big plate amps per speaker? Try using only one voice coil on each driver.

Re: Amps for subs

So if i got more power for the kickers it should make a big improvment? Or would i just be better off to switch subs? I know that getting more powerful amps wold be cheaper as the price of the titanics has gone up from what they were a year ago, could almost get 2 pro sound amps for the price of 2 titanics.

Re: Amps for subs

dave, do you mean putting one amp per coil and see what happens? If i did that then i'd have 1000 watts to each coil. I just know those amps aren't what they are claimed to be as i use to a 15'' Eclipse titanium Sub with one amp on each coil and they still couldn't keep up with the sub, granted those subs were in a 2cu.ft. box sealed and they were a pretty power hungry sub.
