Why are Crescendo amps so cheap? Price wise? I would much rather go with the BC3500 w/ the 0.5 ohm warranty but I'm curious to know what you all think about their amps.

If I'm able to get the SK-2500.1D for only $500 then I'm getting it! And maybe the other if available when I have the money! Otherwise, I'll buy the second off these dealers. I was really hoping to run only one amp though. I hate the hassle of running two..

Well, I own the Crescendo 3500 and the thing is solid as hell

Have mine wired to .5 daily and it never skips a beat even if I clip it - always stays cool, never protects.

Have you clamped it? Does it produce true wattage? What do you think you're getting at .5 ohms?

Both are very solid amplifiers, and the SK-4500.1D is run by MANY customers at 0.5Ohms, however we just can't warranty the amp at that ohm load. That is not to say at all that it will not handle daily

Why not just wire to 1 ohm. No worries.

I've heard the latter can handle the impedance but the former just simply can't. I know they both need big power so for the sake of conversation let us assume they do. Which will hold out longer or do

I've heard the latter can handle the impedance but the former just simply can't. I know they both need big power so for the sake of conversation let us assume they do. Which will hold out longer or do the job at about half gain.

My future build: (2) Skar ZVX 18's D2 wired in parallel @ 0.5 ohms

Electrical: 370 amp Iraggi H/O Alt, Yellow Top front, XS Power D7500 back. (Any better ideas on the back battery support?) and Knu Koncepts 0ga.

Unfortunately, due to Christmas aha, I only have the Yellow Top and one ZVX. Hopefully have everything by Feb if not sooner.

Would love some ideas! This is all in a 2001 Impala.

That is not to say at all that it will not handle daily running at that impedance, again - many customers choose to do it and have had great success. I am pretty sure the Sundown is not warrantied below 1 Ohm either. I think the SK-4500.1 will be nice on your matching Skar ZVX woofers :-)
