I think that will be fine & agree, that amp isn't going to give you 900 rms. You should be fine, what type of box do you have/ have planned?

It's the kicker prefab box right?

It will be fine for now, but when you get used to the bass look into building a box or having one built, because you'll notice a big difference.

You'll never see 900 out of that amp, I'd get something that does a solid 1k.

For the love of god dont buy a sony amp.

http://cgi.ebay.com/KICKER-ZX750-1-7...QQcmdZViewItem

Check that out. That amp will put about 800rms or so to your sub most likely. Will be a great matchup and is still cheaper than the sony. Not to mention the quality is a thousand times higher. Its like compaing a Geo Metro to a BMW.

I have a question. Don't take this the wrong way cause I am by no means a supporter of sony Car audio.

BUT...

If an amp is CEA-2006 certified, wouldn't that mean that the wattage stated is REAL wattage? Therefore meaning that the Sony amp actually puts out 900 watts of power?

Thanks for any clarification.

I think that's for its 550 watt rating.

dont CEA ratings ususually only test for a 2ohm load..(then again i do have a 2ohm mono alpine amp so... im not 100%) but CEA ratings tend to be legit and are something id actually trust.

not true if you think about it sony isnt really that bad of a company. they know there electronics but they know that if they put stuff in walmart that people will buy it if they dont know to much about car audio... sonys equipment has shown improvement over the years by far... i still wouldnt buy there equipment cause theres better stuff out there for the money but some people just dont know where to look... anyways not thread jacking i believe that it will do its rated power if its cea rated..... but you have to put in the factor that its prob with everything maxed out (gain, etc) and im sure the thd isnt all great so it will prob do 900 watts but just not sound great at all doing it... and everyone knows that a cleaner amp will make your system sound up to 2x better.... for example im sure a jl 500.1 prob sound much better than that sony amp just cause its alot cleaner.....

mm...yeah...they do..

There tuned WAY to high...if at all.

And 9/10 times they leak.



And that CEA (or CAE) thing is prob at 18volts..or 15.~ and just a burst of it...there is no way you will get 900 watts outta that amp.


...unless its hit by lightning

CEA ratings state their voltage...14.4v and i think measure at 12.5v too.. and at no time do they measure 17v+ honestly that would denote the entire reasoning behind being certified.

cheaper?

dood... they sell MDF @ lowes for $20 a sheet... it only cost me a tad over $35 to build my box, and thats including the port. it might cost 10- 15 to carpet and thats it.

i bought a prefab when i first got my **** because the ppl that work @ lowes and home depot are morons. cost 130 plus tax. i had two awes10p's in it getting 800wrms apiece and i'll admit it sounded great (previously i had been using two profile baja's in a bandpass rofl). i found out through a friend that lowes did indeed have the mdf, so i made a trip down there, built the box, had one sub go out on me, finaly got the box in and with 1 sub taking 800wrms it easily out performs the two subs taking 1600wrms. oh yea, the box i built has twice the volume of the prefab, so it's sorta like building two of the boxes that i bought for $130 for $35....

def build your own
