Should add more power?
Current System :
•4-channel car amplifier
•100 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (150 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms)
•fuse rating: 40A x 2
The Kenwood is powering the sound to 2 6x9 Rocksfords and 2 6x9 Dodge Stock...whatever the heck they put in.
I have purchased 2 Rockford Fosgate Punch Rev. 3 10 inch Subs - RMS 500 Watts Peak 1000
I am purchasing an amp. Rockford recommends a 1000watt RMS amp that is 1 ohm stable.
Currently I have a 2 gauge power drop and a 0/1 gauge ground direct from the battery. Both are running to 4 port distribution blocks. From the block I am running 4 gauge to the AMP and the power line is running on a 100amp Fuse. I know I will need to up that but what I am wondering should I up the power. All the 1000 watt amps I have seen call for 4 gauge. So you think if I ran my 4 gauge to the block on my 2 gauge I should be good?
I will assume most are thinking no - but I will tell you I did hook up my system - no mods to my lista nd it works fine. can someone close this thread?
Well wait... How does it sound? I mean those should be real loud if you got a 1000W amp. Which amp did you get for the subs?
I only have the RF T400-2 amp which is 120rms x 2 at 4ohms feeding 2 12" p3 shallow subs, and as far as sub goes it's loud enough for me.
The Sub amp is http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/produ...ails/p1000x1bd - According to Rockford it is 1000Watts at 1ohm the way I have it hooked up. The certification has it rated at just over 1400Watts peak. I wasn't wanting more loud than that just wondering if I should have upgrade my wiring since I was running 2 amps
When I ordered my subs I got the loudest thing I could afford...and then bought the amp to compliment it after recommendations from other Rockford owners...and Rockford themselves. Yeah these are plenty loud...the van basically is a large speaker box. I have pictures on my facebook page...
What you have listed above looks good, more than enough headroom above recommended with the 2AWG to the block and 4AWG to the amps with beefy ground connection. I doubt you can tolerate the sound pressure it would take to warm up those wires.
I figured when I first asked...but I like to check with other people you know...? Also I eventually plan on adding the carputer and some accent lights...you know?
I like to converse about plans as I do them in case I miss something
I can say this...it sounds pretty sweet...and I don't even have the amp turned up...LOVE IT!
So are you running a mobile detailing company? I seen lots of equipment and supplies on your facebook page.
I do a little on the side
Small time...thinking about going bigger next season...still side work though
I am also...what people call...anal...about cleaning
