Amp for 2 12" DC Level 3's

24 posts in this topic

I am buying 2 12 inch level 3s and i dont know where to start to look for a amp, i know that DC's subs can handle over the rms all day and i would like to run more then the 900watt rms but i cant tell if a amp is good. for example i know if it says 3000 watts but it doesnt say rms that its not really 3000 watts, but im looking for a good amp that is going to let me get the best out of my subs.

If you don´t know if them are doin rated, look at the fusing rule by thump 100 amp of fusing = 1 K watt RMS.

I guess you a SoundQubed (before AQ) 2200 or a Crescendo 2 K, or the said DC 2 K.

Who told you not to run more than 1.7K?

DC 2k is perfect for a pair of Lv 3's

      Looking for anybody to comment back, Hey Guys! Not new to car audio, but never dealt with Sundown or Skar before. Long question short, Would the Skar Audio RP-800.1D Match well with a Sundown EV3 10 or 12 D4 with VCs in parallel? 600wrms rated at 2 ohms on the amp, Subs both rated for 500wrms? Looking to put in the deck shelf of a 1978 Grand Marquis, ported box tuned to 28-30hz is the goal. Not looking to shake everyone around me, just add some nice low end to accompany my Pioneer D series components and 6x9s on a Pioneer 8604. Thanks in advance!

      a good friend of mine called me up yesterday and said he had 2 Soundstream MC500's for sale and would hook me up proper.  Of course i said yes and to bring them by.  Back in 1989, i JUST graduated High School, my parents moved away and i didn't have but a wooden nickel to my name.  I couldn't even come close to something of this caliber at that time. Anyway, when he told me he really needed the money i figured it was my duty to make him an offer he couldn't refuse and try to take both of them  .  I couldn't help it, as soon as i saw them i knew i had to at least try.  He took my offer and they are both mine.  No, i am not sure what i am going to do with them just yet.  I will open them up, show the guts and run them on the dyno at some point i know that!  It would be fun to do an oldschool SQ build with all vintage Soundstream amps some day.  But just having them in my collection feels so nice   More pics and some vids coming soon!
       
      Serial #25XX (i forgot to take a pic) and Serial #31XX (also forgot to take a pic).  Ill have more updates to this post as i pull them apart and look at the guts

      I have a R.F. P600.2. For the longest time it was working just fine. Then one day it just stopped. I finally nailed the issue down to the Power Block (Power, Ground, Rem) area. If i lift up on my wires just a little bit the amp turns on with no problem. But it only lasts for a few seconds. I think that i have to re-solder the connections internally. but im not sure...any ideas?

      Im really curious if you guys were going to build a van with a big setup (160+) for demos, to be musical around town etc.  The van has to look good and still be very very driveable.

      What type of van would you use  and why?

      Also would like to know what your favourite vans are that are currently competing or have in the past?  Favourite by looks, favourite by their setup, or favourite because a mixture of both.

      The more pics the merrier....

      Thanks for your time

      so looking to get a big boy amp and ive been hearing about the brand "Banda" for awhile and gave them a look... trying to figure out if they are real... a 7k rated 12.6v at 1ohm amp for only 790usd!!!! cant be true... and a freaking 10krms rated for 1300... ive seen a video of evo looking at one powering 4-15s in a wall doing a 155+ and lots of other high end power builds with them so i ASSUME they are doing rated or atleast close to it. STEVE MEADE.... please get your hands on a banda amp and dyno it please... this would be crazy and good for alot of people to hear they are good amps.
      THIS IS THE SUB IM LOOKING TO POWER
