Just ordered a set of Kicker CVT's 12 in small subs to fit in a small box. Each sub is 400 watts RMS and 2 ohm stable. Peak power handling is 800 watts. Wanting to set this up with a MA Audio 1000 watt amp M700xe model. 2x 500 watts at 2 ohms. The box with subs would fit in a convertible Ford Mustang 1993. The trunk is tiny ann the box would slide in under the converible storage box. How about the amp. Good and cheap, just how I like my women and heard some good reports about the MA Audio brand. Any other suggestions sbout what kind of cheap goood amp I can get?

Id get a mono Class D sub amp. Ive had several 2chan amps I bridged and nothing gave the sound of my broken MA Audio mono amp(getting fixed)

Personally, I think you shoulda popped for some DVC subs like Alpine Type R and ran the amp Thump and I have. You could had that setup for %$5-600, but not sure about box size restrictions

Remember it's going into a convertible so space is very, very limited.



The box would have to slide underneath the little space behind this box that I used to have in the trunk. The space where the sub and the amp are now is very precious space used to put a few small things that I would need everyday. Do understand why I couldn't use big woofers now?

K Gee- Is that how you ran your subs? How do you wire up two subs on one mono amp? The subs would have one voice coil on them each. Run the two negative wires and the two postive wires together and hook them up to the mono amp or do I run the the (-) and the (+) together at the subs and the same to the amp? I don't want to blow the subs too. I don't believe they can go to 1 ohm.

nah youre screwed...you can only get 2ohm. You need a very powerful amp to get it to be [email protected] now.

Check around Elemental Design site, ebay and other well known brand sites.
Maybe I can look later when I get to work.

The 2channel will work, but the mono was just way better IMO.

go with alpine type r subs. kickers usually need a lot of airspace to sound right, while a 12in alpine will be fine with one cubic foot. and have better SQ. you can wire as many subs to a mono amp as you want as long as the load on the amp isnt too low. you never change the ohms of the subs, just the impedence that the amp sees.with those kickers on a mono amp youll either wire them to 1 or 4 ohms. for that car id go with two dual 2ohm alpine type r subs and a 800 to 1000w mono class d.

he said his subs were 2ohm stable...but any info I could gather on them were that they were single voice coil 4ohm or 8ohm.

meaning once wired as a pair they show 2ohms.... [img]graemlins/.gif[/img]

if its not too late, get the Type R's at least

So how would I wire a mono amp to those subs that are coming in the mail in a couple days. The subs are 2 ohm stable. Can anybody show me a wiring schematic? How does that amp I picked look to you as far as the price and truely being able to push the subs?

youre subs are SVC 4ohm correct?
Meaning if you wire them up, then can be seen by the amp as 2 ohm

search rockford fosgate for a wiring wizard

if you wire them up this way, it will be to one channel (bridged) so the amp isnt gonna give [email protected]

your amp gives [email protected] bridged...wont work

check this ma audio amp
