Why would you buy another amp if you already have the 2500? And it isn't too much for the sub if you gain set it right.

yeah just keep the 2500.1 amp and get different brand subs...maybe 2 SA-12's or one SA-15. Never turn up the amp gain like a volume gainn!

^^^^^^^^^^^^this right here is your answer...


while I never recommend it to novices I do run well over 1000 rms to L7 subs... I have a customers car outside at this very minute on a 2kw Brutus amp on 1 12" L7.... he has had it since I installed it over 3 yrs ago...

I always thought it was better to have an amp with more power than a sub can handle provided that you set the gains right but that the amp doesn't have to work as hard and not risk clipping when you innadvertently crank that gain.
