Question about Sony Xplod XM-1652Z Car Audio Amplifier
The subs are in the back of my dodge extended cab, they are in a sealed box, so what would you suggest to push them any thing would be better than what I had on them?
Get an amplifier that is rated just under the power ratings of the subs, that way you will not blow the subs by pumping in too much power to them. An example is, if you have 2 subs that are 500 watts each and you are going to connect them in stereo mode, you need an amp that is no more than about 400 to 450 watts per channel. This will push them very hard, but will not blow them by overdriving them. If you are going to connect 2 subs at 500 watts each in a bridged mode (in parallel across both channels) then you need an amplifier that is about 800 to 900 watts total power for both channels. This is basically the same power ratings for an amp, but some amps are mono (just one channel) and will have just a total power rating, while other amps are 2 or 4 channel amplifiers and have a rating for each channel.
I hope this helps in your decision making, if you need more help let me know. I have been repairing car audio equipment for almost 20 years and have seen just about everything.
