What amp do I need for my sub?
Subsequently, one may also ask, do I need an amp for my sub?
The short answer is that everyone who wants a subwoofer in their car also needs a subwoofer amplifier. As to whether you need a separate amp for your subwoofer, that depends on the hardware you already have and the car audio system that you're trying to build.
Subsequently, question is, how many watts do you need for a subwoofer? An aftermarket receiver — you might want 200 to 300 watts RMS of power. Amplified speakers with around 50 watts RMS per channel — 250 to 500 watts RMS is a good starting point. A system with 100 watts RMS per channel — having at least 1,000 watts RMS, or more for the sub is not uncommon.
In this manner, what kind of amplifier do I need?
Generally you should pick an amplifier that can deliver power equal to twice the speaker's program/continuous power rating. This means that a speaker with a “nominal impedance” of 8 ohms and a program rating of 350 watts will require an amplifier that can produce 700 watts into an 8 ohm load.
What hits harder 2ohm or 4ohm?
The 2-ohm Subwoofers Hence, the two ohms subwoofers are louder than the 4 ohms subwoofers. However, the 2 ohms subwoofers may be louder than the subwoofers with more higher resistance; it is may also produce a low quality of sound because of its power consumption.
