Amp Test Tuesday - Sundown SAZ 1500-D Amp Guts and Dyno Runs @ 1, .8 and .5 Ohms


Recommended Posts

I have been wanting to do this for a while now. I realize i SORTA already tested this amp but since it was way before i had an official "test bench", it never got a fair shake compared to all the other amps i have tested. I had previously used 2 8ga wires on positive and 2 8 ga wires on the negative (all i had close by lol) for power wire. It was also on one single XS Power D1400 Battery. I also don't think i even tested this amp at 1ohm. There also was no "Amp Test Tuesday".



So let me officially make this official and put this on the new bench for a REAL "Amp Test Tuesday".


Power supply used: 10 XS Power D1400 14v Batteries.

XS Power PSC 60a Intellicharger/power Supply (turned OFF during runs, only turned on in between to top batteries off).


Tested the amp at 1 ohm to see if it can do rated power. I really didn't need to do .8 and .5 ohms, but since i did that on the last test, i just wanted to show the difference. I really tortured this amp and it took it like a champ!! got nice and warm but that is to be expected!


All gains set with the SMD DD-1 Plus to 8db of overlap. That really doesn't matter too much but i think it's a nice little gain setting to start with on woofers.

So what type of numbers do you guys think it will do? There is NINE numbers since i tested in all 3 modes at 3 different impedance's. Video will be uploading in about 1 hour.
