i am lookin to buy some 10w6's and i cant figure out what amp i should get...i was lookin into the jl 500/1 amp but is it able to be hooked up with the 2 subs....any imput would be appreciated.
:wtf:Pharacyde said:JL subs are "idiot proof" in that they have a regulated power supply. They "adapt" to whatever load is presented. However, you still need to make sure your subs and their wiring don't present a load lower than 1 ohm.
I have a bunch of oscilloscopes. Do you know what they used for a load and their methods of testing? A 1,000 watt 2 ohm resistor? You probably don't know, but did they use a 10 or 100x attenuation probe.. Sorry, just seeing if you know.Pharacyde said:well... if you wanna stick w/ JL I'd say stick w/ the 500/1... the w6's are rated at 400w RMS.. the 500/1 is underrated. Guy at the local shop measured mine at 608w RMS on an oscilloscope.
It's been my experience that overpowering a sub is a BAD idea. I'd say use a sub that can take more than you're gonna run to it. If you want a 1000/1... get w7s or subs rated to take that much power... my w3v2s are rated at 250RMS and I've already had problems w/ over excursion while keeping the gains all the way down.
