    Default Polk c500.1 running 2 x DB12 DVC's?

    Heya,

    I want to run my 2 x DB12"s (DVC's) in a sealed box. Will the c500.1 do that, or will the subs be underpowered?

    I am not going for SPL, just daily listening, but I also want to crank it up occasionally.

    I see the specs on the 12's are 360w each, and the sib 500w, but I think it will still run them fine myself.



    Thanks in advance

    edit : I see I cannot hook up the 2 x DVC's to make it 2 ohm stable (being 4 ohm speakers).

    Would I be better off going for the C300.1, which can run either 220W x 2 at 2 OHM, or 450W x 1 at 4 Ohm (either one is possible with the 2 x DVC's)

    Youre right, you cant run a pair of dvc subs off the 500.1 as its not 1 ohm stable. You could wire each sub in series and then bridge them for a 4 ohm load but then youd be getting half the power.

    Its really hard to find a 300.2 these days unless you get one used but that would be a better configuration than a 500.1 at 4 ohms.

    Can you exchange your subs for SVC models? Then a 500.1 would be perfect for it.
