  1. Finally got my box built for the X15. 4.25 cubes and barely squeezed that bitch into the trunk Of my 91 accord. I'm happy with the d4 and anyone having second thoughts should feel comfortable about buying it. I have 2 amps and I have this D4 currently running on only 750 watts at 2 ohms on a cheap hifonics hfi 1000.1D. I used to have 2 12" jvc arsenals running 1 ohm at 1000 watts on the same amp and this sundown sub is way cleaner sounding by far and like everyone says "it thrashes the lows". for having 25% less power than my 2 12" jvc's I'm impressed by how much more bass and window shaking I'm getting (It's amazing to me) this is my first time upgrading from 12's to 15"s and always worried if 1 15" would sound less "bassy" than 2 12's but from first hand experience this sub has out done both my 2 kickers and both my 2 jvc's to the point I'll never look at those brands the same again.sundown did an amazing job with their subs. My next amp will be installed sometime soon and this amp will put out 1600 watts at 2 ohms and 2200 at 1 ohm.I didn't expect this type of quality even after reading numerous reviews about the sub and hundreds of YouTube videos. you just don't know til you try it. I've only used 2 brands of subs in the short time I've had a system. I've used kicker and jvc. Neither of those will ever be in par with sundown. I'm a customer for life at this point. Thanks for reading my final thoughts on this experience.
  2. I didn't think of that. Thanks for the idea. This will be a growing project. I'm testing the waters with sundown and once I get better at understanding all of this I'll upgrade to zv4's or possibly the team sundown. I at least want to immortalize my experience with a D4 by making this thread. Amp comes in Friday, big 3 done last night to 1/0 skyhigh wire and new 200 amp fuse and box bought. I'll post my thoughts when I have everything hooked up and bumping. But yes. I will be upgrading my amp soon I just want to keep the price low while I learn.
  3. I did a bit of research on this...after searching Google for answers and seeing this exact thread pop up on the top of the search results repeatedly I decided to just go with it and maybe save some guy in the future a headache of his own. I just ordered a hifonics Brutus X14 2200 and at 2 ohms it claims to have 1600 watts (we'll see). I just did the big 3 today and also ordered an xs power d3400 battery. I plan on keeping this D4 and adding another and building a wall in my accord. As I upgrade my system I'll post how the amps sound and perform With this X15 D4.
  4. I contacted sundown about the return policy. Not sure if I can do it myself since it was purchased from a dealer but I have all the information on the box so I'll see what I can do from here. Thank. A lot. How do I take this thread down now lol?
  5. damn there's so much more to the D4 than what it's worth to learn I feel. Lol. I've only used 2ohm subs in the past and only have researched info on class D amps at 1 ohm. My knowledge is small with amps that are only 2 ohm. This is becoming a headache for sure and I think it's Clear I don't understand enough about this sub to feel comfortable Dropping more money for a new amp when I already have one but won't push the x15 hard enough at 2 ohms. It would do fine for the D2. I'm going to send this thing back (however the hell I do that lol)
  6. I haven't heard what the warranty is like, me and him haven't talked about it and he's way too busy lately to get ahold of. Since I bought this sub from him can I even trade this in myself for a D2 and just wait for it to be restocked? Or do I have to send it through him and pay the shipping? that's the last option I want to take. I'd rather find a good amp for it.
  7. I purchased the sub from a 3rd party (local sundown dealer and box builder) and because of the D2 being on back order for a while I settled for a single d4. My headache has just begun I feel. There's so many options for amps with a single D2 compared to a D4 price wise. My cap would be about 300 maybe 350 but would like to stay as close to 300$ as possible. I'm closing in on a hifonics Brutus 2400 which would have a rated 1700 rms @ 2 ohms. That's the jist of it all, I'm almost wondering if I should buy a D2 and take this as a "lesson learned" or can I make this thing sound just as good as a D2 X15? I want to put about 1500-2k watts into the x15 And the sundown audio amps are out of my price range for watts with 2 ohms. Did I mess up? Should I have gotten the d2 and will the d4 only be beneficial if I have 2 x15's?
