CAB 1600 enough for single X v2?

Recommended Posts

I just know how Sundown is with the RMS rateings... wanna give it all she can take without getting Hot.

Want her to last long too... was thinking 2000w Brutus amp but thought it might be too much...

 

Opinions???


BOSS Audio FTW!

A 2000 watt amp definitely won't be too much for a Xv2, as long as your gains are set right.  You could put it on a 3k amp as long as you were paying attention.

IMHO, more is better. If your going to push it to its max you'll most likely end up with a hotter coil by feeding it 1600-2000 watts at clipping than you would with 2500-3000 of clean power. Either way orient the subs so that it is possible to smell the coils.
