DD1 gain overlap

Recommended Posts

So been using the dd1 love it. I have one system two sundown sa15’s on a sundown sae 3k @1ohm. 240 alt, xs d3400 up front d5100 in rear . Subwoofers in a sealed box due to space .2.5 cubes per. Currently amp is set with the dd1 at -7.5db and begging for more . Any truth to a sealed box set up actually needing more power ? Heck at -10db Would I not be throwing 3k plus on them ? Double rated..  I only play retail music and music from iTunes.

You will only get whatever power the amp makes, more overlap doesn't always mean more power.


Keep on mind the music you listen to is recorded at a certain level. So if its -7 db and your gain is -10 db you will be clipping 3db at full volume.



With that said I run -10 db on my subs and use a remote gain knob to adjust as needed
