Too much power? And how high can I crossover?

Recommended Posts

I got a new amp, and I think it's about to put a hurtin on my Rl-P12 D4.....It's a Clarion DPX11551 so at 2-ohm, it will be putting 1550RMS to the sub. It will be sealed in 1.25^ft. If the gain is all the way down, will I be OK? Previously ran with 500wrms, and it was a monster.

Also, whats the highest I should cross the sub? Im running Dayton RS180-4 7" in the doors. Can I cross the sub at 100hz or am I asking for trouble?

Thanks.

1st question: Yes, just set the gain appropriately and you'll be fine.

2nd question: Why do you need to cross you sub over so high? The Dayton's should be able to cover well below 100hz

True. I just worry about crossing the daytons low and loud at 180watts per...but im sure they'll be fine at 80hz.

Thank you

If they start to sound funny, then turn it down :ehh: . 80 should be fine if you're conscious of the sounds that are supposed to come out of your speakers and the ones that precede funny smells
