That amp (that you linked) is rated for 350w RMS @ 4ohm, 1 channel (bridged).
What's your budget for a sub, and give me some good online shops that you trust. We'll make something happen
Hmmm perhaps its not clipping then? I'm not to sure but it sounds like something bottoming out? And when it happens the sub looses the nice bass note?
Like it will hit some notes cleanly and they will sound deep but then some notes have no power and the sub sounds like its hitting the top of something? Like its bottoming out? It's hard to explain.
Also I thought you went off the rated power output of the amp? Which is 130w @ 4ohm, 1 channel? Instead of the maximum power output?
My budget is as cheap as possible but I would like quality that is gonna give me that good hard bass hit in your chest and make the floor shake. I would say no more than $300 for the sub and the materials to make the box.
I'm not to sure on car audio sites but one I would trust is: http://www.parallelimported.co.nz/
I've just been browsing through trademe
, which is like New Zealand's equivalent to eBay.
