    Default What Amplifier Powers Your SR Sub?

    I am thinking of getting an amplifier with a little more ompf. I am curious as to what everyone else is using to power their SR subwoofer. I have a single SR124 powered by a Kenwood Excelon KAC-X520 that provides 500RMS bridged at 4 ohms bridged mono.

    Right now I'm using a Polk c500.1 for each of my SR124 dvc subs at a 2 ohm load for 500 watts each. Next summer I will (hopefully) be upgrading to two of Polks new amps... the PA1200.1

    I have a SR124dvc powered by a older PPI4100, bridged to each coil it pushes around 400-450 for about 900 watts. Truthfully I was thinking about going bigger still as I find it a little underpowered when compared to my SR6500's which are ran by a PPI 2100(2*100).

    I was thinking about moving the 4100 to the fronts and having 100 watts going to each driver and getting a PPI 2350 which does about 1350 watts when bridged. Just don't know how I would wire it....but we shall see. I've only had it all in the car for a week or so.

    My Pioneer head unit has an auto calibration function to set the distance, and gain levels for each of the speakers for my listening position. It does an auto-eq set up as well which does a pretty good job. It sets my single 12 down about to what it refers to as -10. I prefer a little more bass than a totally flat setting so I put it at around -7. I find with some bass heavy music the amp I have will simply run out of steam and clip. I was thinking of getting a second sub and a new amp or maybe just a bit more amplifier power. The amp I have is probably 5 years old and well used. I doubt its making anywhere near its power specs anymore.

    You guys all have some nice stuff!

    Kinetic, have you gotten around to installing your SR components? How do you like them?
