anyone had any luck with a Planet Audio AP3000d? the price is very appealing at $189.99 but i know the car audio scene well enough to be kind of weary about if the output is truly 2400watts rms..

He's referring to the Planet Audio Apocalypse series. I haven't used Planet Audio in years, but from what I've heard the Big Bang series is the only one that does close to rated.

Well I've seen them around too. My thinking is that maybe I can strap 2 of them on 1 SMD 18. That should be close to SMD rms ratings.

the ap series from planet sound good and every thing but they don't do no 2400 watts the bigbang series does but the lower lines are over inflated but if your going to strap two you will probably get enough power to move that sub

I have one and about a year ago I had it clamped to see what I was really running and it was pretty close for 4 ohms (972 watts), so while it's not perfect it's close. Plus while haters are hating it is a good amp, just don't try to wire it to .5 ohm like i did. 2 years strong and still beating harder than my brother's HIfonics brutis amp and Sundown subs, but looking to see how it's going to fair with 2 15" RE Audio SEx subs.

Planet Audio does have some decent amps for the money but stay way away from the Anarchy line.

 

 The AP3000D only has a 150 amp fuse so do your own numbers on that, hardly 3000.  I have an RXD1000 so I can speak from experience as most cant. It has 3x40 amp fuse and slams my Diamond Audio 12 pretty good. Not that fuse ratings mean everything, just giving you an idea.

Don't forget Planet Audio amps can easily get overheated running at 2 Ohms because it doesn't have heat sink or cooling fans. I've had experienced with Planet Audio AC2500.1M running 1800W at 2 Ohms.

Planet audio suck. I bought one last year and it felt heavy like it was a decent amp. Had issues out of the box day one! I yanked it out then I beat it to death with a hammer lol and when it poped open I seen a 10 inch long 1/4inch thick steel plate screwed to the inside of the heat sink . Absolutely the worst amp I have seen or Tryed to use. I will never waist time or money on these amps. Go buy the soundqubed 750 amp for 200 and you will be pleased

The steel plate was used to make the amp feel like it was heavy like a quaulty amp would be. That pissed me the hell off to see a company pulling shady shit like this . Realy planet audio ads steel to weigh them down to trick people

I suspect something different other then just running at 2 ohm, I've owned my RX series and have ran it at 1 ohm ever since I bought it and thats been about 5 years. Its never shut down on me nor has it ran hot enough to make me think it was and I've pushed my sub hard enough to get it stinky plenty of times.

 

 What series was that plate in?
