i need an amp that's $200 or less to push a single sundown sa-12, 4ohm dvc

i have a hifonics hifi1000.1d but it's total shit

the box is 1.5ft^3 tuned to 30hz

i want enough bass but not too much

i am looking at rockford r500-1

kicker zx750.1d

mtx td1000.1d

it's going in a 2000 honda insight

any suggestions?? i want some quality but i'm also trying to save as much money as possible

Welcome!

Check out the SSA store. If you up your budget by $100 the Skar Audio SK800.1 would be a great choice.

Or

The Incriminator Audio IA5.1 would be another possibility.

Classifieds section is always an option as well

hifonics brz 1700

I'm guessing that he is avoiding Hifonics...

I would look for an old sundown audio sax1000.d or saz-1500d, the latter of the amps I've used and it was simply the best sub amp I have ever owned to date.

thanks for the advice, i'm pushing it at $200 though.

i would love to get a crazy nice amp but i can't afford it right now

is there a secret amp that i have not seen $200 or under which produces godly power w/ quality?? would a used rockford r1000-1d for 170 be a good idea?

APSM-1500

i'll check it out, thanks

i can get a crescendo bc2000d for 180 or a rockford r1000-1d for 170. the rockford is not the best they have made but i'd still preffer it over the hifonics, and if the crescendo works out then that'll be an amazing deal. i just don't know if my sa-12 can handle 1000+ watts rms.

thats a steel, where did you find this at? I would get the endo for sure, just adjust your gains accordingly, plus leaves room for growth.

somebody is selling it on craigslist, i just hope nobody has bought it yet. i have to drive an hour to get to it and an hour back though; but totally worth it considering that gas money won't be bad cause my car gets obnoxious gas milage and it's like the nicest amp ever lol.

Sweet bro, yeah I will definitely grab the endo IMHO. And chris is just stating his opinion. He may have heard bad stories, hates anything other than RF, or believes endo & hifonics are not up to par with RF.

You can grab two of those AP1500s if you look around a bit for ~200shipped

One is being sold for 110 shipped on c.a.c.o. right now that I'm aware of.

      I just bought a zv5 15 thinking it was dual 2 ohm and it’s dual 1 ohm. I have a few questions. First, can it be recone to dual 2? Because I read some motors are only configured to function on the original impedance. Idk. And if I can’t get it recone, can I run that amp at .5 ohm unclipped on that zv5 and not overpower it? Should I run it at 2 ohms? I hope it can be reconed to dual 2. In need of help. Thank u.

      We have finally released our new amp.  It is a tiny tiny production run to see how people like them.  Meant for the high end, SQ market, without the European price tag.  If this model moves as well as I hope, it will help spawn another model in the line up soon.
      https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/ssa-dm150-2-2-channel-amplifier-150w-x-2-ch-or-500w-x-1-ch/

      Introducing the all new SSA DM150.2 amplifier. An old school approach, with updated components, for the most discerning of ears. If your front stage is lacking warmth and clarity, its time to upgrade. Our first amplifier in our high-end, sound quality, Class- A/B - Demon amplifier line. The SSA DM150.2 is the elite choice for that high end active front stage, premium passive components, and especially a sound quality sub (SSA Demon). We've incorporated direct inputs for those competition installs that use an external DSP and want their amp to be a pure gain block. Stellar looks to match the design and components. Don't let your speakers or your ears down, #levelup to the all new SSA DM150.2 amplifier.

      I am working to expand our amplifier offerings, while staying high quality, somewhat unique, and affordable.
      First up looks like a class-A/B 6 channel.  No crossover network, individual gains, 150watts x 6, will keep footprint as small as possible for the design, similar appearance to the current models.  Feeling out interest as it will effect the total amps I put into production.
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      As a side note, I am considering a 2-channel of the same line, but the demand for 2 channels right now are so low.  Would not really want to build them if they are going to sit for a while.
       
      Just curious on any input before I get production going.

      Hey guys, I'm new here but been messing around with audio in my cars on an amateur level for quite a while. I recently decided to do an amp/sub install on my newly acquired 2006 Infiniti M45. It has a factory 14 speaker BOSE system. As far as the audio upgrades I've added is as follows.
      -Sundown Audio SCV3000d amp
      -1 Sundown Audio X12 @ 1ohm in ported box to spec
      -0 gauge wiring ran to trunk to additional audio battery and capacitor
      -6 gauge wiring from amp to sub
      -LOC taped into the stock Bose sub inputs
       
      Problem is that the sub doesn't sound nearly as loud as it should although the sound it does produce is very clear. I went from 2 SA12's in my last car with a 1500 watt amp and was impressed so I decided to upgrade power and sub to the X12. I also noticed that the amp is clipping anytime I turn the bass boost over 1/3 on the remote dial which also has the clipping LED indicator. The gain on the amp is maybe in the 10 o'clock position and I'm really just wondering if it's maybe the signal from the Bose amp that is causing this and/or if there is a better location to tap into for the bass signal.
