Hello everyone , I`m new to this forum . I`ve been searching for an answer for some time now and can`t find it. So for example I have a 500 W rms subwoofer , and an 500w rms amp. The sub is rated for 1000W peak, how can i reach that , when I set my gains , I get only 500W then the signal clips. So i will never reach 1000W peak. Buying a bigger amp for let`s say 1000w rms , and setting the sub that way will mean it will play all the time at 1000W (peak ) and blow. Is peak only for SPL competitions where you do 2 3 sec of peak , or I should hear it when playing music in my car and a big bass drop comes in ? Please someone... I need some light on this.
Currently I have the Hifonics amp. I am expecting two new Skar VVX 12's tomorrow. I am wondering which amp out of the two would be a better match for the subs, with sound quality and spl in mind. What would the pros and cons of either amp be for this setup or similar ones? I'm asking this, because I am selling one of my old type-r's on craigslist, and I have someone that wants to trade the p1000 for my type-r. This made me wonder if this amp would be a better option for me, or if I should just hold out for cash and either keep the Hifonics or save up for an even more powerful and better amp like an AQ 2200 or similar. I don't mean to start a vs. thread, because it seems like they are rather disliked on this and any other forum. I'm just looking for opinions from others with more experience than I have. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
