Hi all, new to the forum here, but not new to car audio. I'm planning a new system, and (unless there are better options out there) am definitely planning on using a single SR 124 DVC at 2 ohms. I don't need incredibly loud bass (think classic rock, jazz, classical), but from everything I've read, the sound quality of the SR will be unbeatable at that price point.
Now, the PA 880 would give me 500 watts, and the PA 1200.1 would give me 800 watts. There's almost no way I would even run the PA 880 high enough to output 500 watts, much less 800 out of the 1200.1. However, my main question is: will there be a noticeable sound quality difference between these two amps? Also, if I'm pushing say, 400 watts (80%) out of the PA 880, is there a higher likelihood of distortion than pushing 400 watts (50%) out of the 1200.1?
I greatly appreciate any opinions, especially from anyone with experience with these amps and sub.
