RLP-15 more power?

1862 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Mike P.
I have a RLP-15 in a sealed cabinet approx 4.5cu and am feeding it just one channel from EP-2500. I have never tried mono at roughly 1500 watts, is that too much power? Do I need to be concerned about the driver with more wattage? Just wondering what the benifits might be with configuring the 2500 to mono? Thanks

With 650 watts to the sub from one channel you exceed Xmax at 10 hz. With 1000 watts you would exceed Xmax at 21 hz. If this this a HT sub then you'll need a high pass filter.
Does that mean that the driver is currently fairly safe from overexcursion with one channel but would reccomend a high pass filter for mono configuation? Thanks
