Smd dd1 what track for large amp to subs.

Recommended Posts

Going to set the gain for a sundown sae 3000 that’s on two sundown sa15’s in sealed box.  Strong electrical 240 amp alt, xs d3400 up front and a d5100 in the rear. I’m looking at the -10db track doing way to much. What would be best setting?i know the SA’s can take some abuse but don’t want to over do it.

Depends on what music you listen to. If you listen to today's rap then - 10 will send you into clipping. I personally use snowdrifters - 7.5 Dropbox file. Even then I have to watch it because I still clip. - 5 just doesn't seem to be enough though. Experiment and see what works best for you

I am thinking the same from what I have seen with -5db, but it’s double the power so I may start it there and listen. I have the -7.5 also if it needs more.

im running a sk2500 to a pair of rev-1 sa-12 in a ported box with -10db overlap. you are running sealed so you will never smell coil. me? i just dont care, i full send my setup all the time with no issues. 

 

not sure why you are running that much power with a sealed enclosure as that seems like you are looking to get a lot of output, or you are looking for a metric crap ton of overhead and are building a monster SQ setup.

Well went sealed because couldn’t fit them ported. Went with the amp for headroom so could maximize the subs. Still want to get loud as possible not looking for as much as a SQ setup. I’ve been told by a local shop with the amount of headroom I shouldn’t set with any overlap because at 0db the amp is doing 3k plus watts.
