You’re going to need a much bigger sub amp. I mean it will be fine, but bigger is better. Which ones are you looking at that are rated at 200rms? The one I got was 300rms and it’s being ran by a 500rms kicker amp at 2ohm. And it takes it all.
Do they not make the X-6.5sw anymore?Sundown Audio SA6.5 are rated at 200w RMS. The LC-1.800 is 800w RMS @ 2ohm and usually puts 950-1000w RMS. The next amp in the Audio Control line is a 1500w RMS which IMO is overkill but could always be turned down.
After talking to the box designer that is the route I'm going to go. I will power them with an Audio Control LC-1.1500. From what I am reading the X-6.5S4 is a single 4ohm voice coil, is that accurate? If so, I would need to confirm with Audio Control that their amp will succesfully run at 1ohm (I don't want to run different amp brands). I'm planning on either the US Acoustics Barbara Ann/Mike or the Audio Control D-4.800/LC-1.1500 to power the setup.Do they not make the X-6.5sw anymore?
This is what I have https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/sundown-audio-x-6-5-300w-x-series/
IIRC they are single voice coil. So the S4 would be 4 ohm. You would need the 2 ohm speakers to make that run at 2 ohm just do two in parallel and two in series to get you 2 ohmAfter talking to the box designer that is the route I'm going to go.

They put two sets in parallel. Here is the part that confuses me, they’re listed as single 4ohm but have an RE of 2.9ohm. If my math is right I could get to 1.45ohm and I’d hope the Audio Control is stable there.if it’s a 1500.1 it should only have two terminals unless they have an extra set in parallel for some reason
do you have a link to those?Well made the plunge and bought 4x Savard Hi-Q 6.5" with dual 4ohm voice coils. The Savard's are rated at 350w RMS but will take more. With 1500w RMS on tap from the Audio Control LC-1.1500 I think they will make more than enough noise and should also live a long/healthy life at 375w RMS. They are built very similar to the Sundown X series 6.5" but offer a voice coil arrangement that I need in order to run 2ohm to make the Audio Control amp happy. They came to right around $120 shipped each.
Door Amp/DSP:do you have a link to those?
Any reason to not run say a D-6.1200 which would act as your DQ-61 (line converter) and Epicenter (DSP)? You're really not spending much more on the D-6.1200 but you also then gain a 6 channel ([email protected]/[email protected]) amp in there as well. Same goes for the D-4.800 as it'll take high level inputs and provide a line out for the sub with full DSP but is only [email protected]/[email protected]I had a nice sound quality system in my last truck and told myself I wasn’t going to do that this time. Well after 3 years of Bose, I can’t take it anymore. A couple of threads like this, and here we go. It doesn’t help (or hurt) that a good friend of mine owns DC Audio and he has been bugging me to go for it. So I started putting a plan together and started buying components a couple of weeks ago.
Factory head unit
Processors: Audiocontrol DQ61 & EPICENTER
Dash: cdt 2” mid/tweeter with a Focal 75x2
Doors: DC audio 6.5 convertibles (Hybrid Audio) DC 90x4
Subs: 2-DC 10” level 3 and DC 1.2kw
still working out the sub box, but I will probably build it myself.
LMI seat lift and some DC sound deadening
I will do a build thread when I get going on it.
