  • Max out my system.

    I know people say that "Legacy" is a cheap brand. Well ohwell, I have 2 4000w 15" subs. I would like to max them out. I mean all the way to the max. So, I'm looking for an amp! What should I get? I love bass. (:

    You sound a bit misguided, honestly. Driving your subwoofer at its peak rating is only going to blow your speaker. If your subwoofer is really a 4kW RMS sub... nah, I won't even humor that small chance of likelihood. There are way too many factors to consider than just simply 'feed the subs more power' idea.

      How many ohms are you running them at? How many ohms are they rated for? Are they dual voice coil? What's the RMS/peak wattage per voice coil? Are they ported or sealed?

        I have them at 4 ohms, They're also rated at 4 ohms.
        Voice coil = Single.
        It says 4000w for each. I doubt it though.
        And sealed.

        I want them to at least hit like this.

          What are they? Is that 4kw RMS or max? I'm guessing "max", which is a term that means ZERO!

          Also, how are the subs wired? If you have two subs, both SVC, and both 4ohm, and wired together, you either have a 2ohm load or an 8ohm load... If they're at 4ohm, that means they're on separate channels. Going with a 2 ohm load on a decent-quality class D mono sub amp is going to be your best bet. As to what size you'll need, it's gonna require knowing what you have... Which is still up in the air.
          Play with it, 'til it's broke.

            Ya, need to know if they're wired serial or parallel.
