whats the best way to hook up this amp http://www.sounddomain.com/item/HIFNX600
with this sub (the av12 not the 15) http://www.stryke.com/AVseries.html
the sub has dual vc's so would it be better to hook each channel up to a vc? or should i wire the vc's in parallel and bridge the amp? if i run them in parallel its a 4ohm load and if i wire each vc with a channel of the amp it will be dual 2 ohm loads. im not sure if the amp is 2 ohm stable. what would be a better way to hook up the amp?

parallel the VCs and bridge it to the amp
itll give you 600 watts RMS total
whats the RMS on those subs?
surely its higher than 600?

im not sure....i think 500 watts, but its mainly used in HT applications and car audio watts are a little different, i think....either way im not worried about blowing it by using 600 watts. that woofer is a beast

yeah, just looking at the specs it looks like it can take more than 600...
ill take a brahma over it though:D
cant wait til my 2 come in...i HATE backorders...UGH

look at the price difference between that and the brahman....the stryke is a much better deal
for about $100 more you are only moving .05 l of air with the brahman lol
07-26-2004, 07:20 PM
what they forget to tell you is that the brahma has more displacement than the stryke because it has almost a centimeter more x-max than the stryke
so it will get louder
it will also sound better because of its superior motor technology
also, the adire will have less distortion at any volume
not to mention that it will work great off of anything b/t 400-1600 watts
and you can run the 10" sub in a sealed box as small as .5ft^3
so i wouldnt exactly call it a better deal
but to each his own;)

eh, for $175 the stryke will do fine lol 23 mm xmax is good enough lol

I wish you would hurry up and get your Brahmas already. Im dying to hear how they perform!
07-28-2004, 10:37 PM
they perform really really well, especially in a car
07-29-2004, 01:05 AM
is this from personal experience? if so, specifically how do they perform? we need a full report, lieutenant!
07-29-2004, 11:33 PM
nope, sorry guys no personal expirence....but when i finish my sub we can have a brahma stryke shootout :D
what kind of enclosure u stickin those beasts in?
07-30-2004, 12:40 AM
theyre going in a sealed and are only going to be run off about 550 watts RMS each for now
i cant put a couple of big amps in the truck without replacing the alternator...not something i want to shell out money for since ill only have the truck 1 more year
when i get a new truck ill get a bigger alternator and not decided on the amps yet
do know it will be 1k-1.5k RMS each sub though
