First thing is first. What subs do you have? Audiobahn makes several kinds of 12" subs. What model sub do you have?
Without knowing this, it would be hard to recomend an amp without knowing how much power your sub can handle. Audiobahn makes from very power amps that can put out up to 5000W RMS, but if your sub can not handle that power, then you will blow your sub.

    The sub you have can handle 550W RMS with a 4 ohm coil. When wired in parellel, you will have a 2 ohm load on the amp. That is when you wire both positive and negative terminals on the subs together. (Recommended if you only want 1 amp)

    Go with either the A1500HCT or A2300HCT

    The 1500 is 1000W x1 when running a 2 ohm load.

    The 2300 is 1200W x1 when running a 2 ohm load.

    One is slightly under powered, and the other is slighty over. In my experiance, go over, and turn the amp down a hair. Cleaner bass when your not pushing the limits of your amp.

    As for your box. This comes down to what kind of music you listen to, and what kind of system you are putting together.

    A ported box that gives you about 2 cubic feet per sub is a good box if you just want some loud bass with your music. If you listen to Rock, consider a Sealed box at about 1 cubic feet per sub.

    A ported box will allow your bass to be louder, but a sealed box will allow for tighter sounding bass, but won't be as loud.

    The box can be bought at many locations including Best Buy and Circuit City.

    When tuning your system, listen carefully. when you turn it up, make sure your speakers are not clipping. (sounds like a slapping noise) If they start clipping, turn it down, or you will blow a sub.

    hope this helps.

Hi, if you wire all voice coils in parallel, you will get down to 1.5 ohms. That is the lowest you can go with these 2 subs. Just hook the amps' positive to all 4 positive speaker terminals and the amp negative to all 4 speaker negative terminals. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 12 inch audiobahn 550 rms 4 ohm coil ported box and a dual box with 12 inch subs they say 550 max wattas a piece thats it waht amp do i need to get atleast 80% of my power in bass

Get a 1200 watt 4 channel amp that's 2 ohm stable. Bridge 2 channels into the single 550W rms audiobahn. Use the other channels for each side of the dual box. Turn the LPF or Low Pass Filter on and vibrate down the road.

AW1508X are they really any good?

The subs are good overall depending what kind of amp you are using. I personally use a ported box for all audiobahn subs.

Is it enough

Audiobahn subs are not too powerful and they can not handle too much continuous RMS, be careful they will heat up and tear off the voice coils off ur subs. run about 100 - 150 RMS at 75 HZ to each sub and keep the gains at about 3/4 this way you will avoid blowing out your subs. It also depends on the amp? What kind of amp is it?


Let me know if you wish. Otherwise
