I wonder if this a bit too much amp for (2) drivers?
I am planning to use (2) for EP4000 for (4) drivers (@ 4 Ohm), but I am a still a noobie when it comes to DIY subs, so some guidance is greatly appreciated!
SI18”D2 versus SI18”D4 versus RSS460HO-4
I am planning to build (4) sealed subs (Erich’s 4 ft3 flat packs) with 18” drivers. They will be powered by (2) EP4000. For stability reasons running them on 4 Ohm seems to be the preferred route. The subs are for my HT, probably supplementing (2) SVS PC13 Ultras. 95% movies / 5% music
I am looking for some guidance about what drivers to get: SI18” D2 or D4… and the reasons behind.
Along those lines, from what I understand, the PE Dayton RSS460HO-4 will sound very similar to above SI. Pricing differences between them are negligible. So would the DVC of the SI bring any advantage (flexibility?) over the Dayton’s SVC?
Why bridged and not stereo? The RMS power for an EP4000 on 4 ohm is rated at 950 W stereo versus 2,400 W bridged. From what I understand 950 W / driver should be more than sufficient. With 1,200 W / driver I am a bit worried I could damage the driver.
