Best sub to match my amp... - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

ok so i got both subs for christmas and i wired one into my amp in series so it has a 2ohm load on the amp. It sounds great, however with the power **** on the amp turned up to only half and when i turn the volume up on the HU the overload light flickers on the amp when the song hits hard. I don't leave it on loud volumes for a long period of time so i dont think this is a problem. However i have another sub sitting in my room and i know i wont be able to run it off my current amp. So i've been looking for amps and found a Power Acoustik PS-820 that can run 2 subs at 2ohms with 230 RMS. I found it at cardomain.com for $115 and $85 at caraudiodeals.com. Is this a good buy? I couldn't really find any reviews and i think power acoustik is a reliable brand, i was just wondering why so cheap?
