Hello guys, I need a little bit of your experience here...

I have a Memphis m3's 10" that I am planning to push with a MCD 500.1. The sub is DVC 4 Ohms per coil... I just want to know if the amp I am planning to buy can handle the Ohm load of the sub, because as far as I know I can wire the sub to be 2 or 8 Ohms right? I just want to know if that amp handle the 500W at 1,2,4 or 8 Ohms.

The site does not give me that info, at least not on this pc

I appreciate all your input!

Thanks

Ed.

Here are the specs for that amp

SPECIFICATIONS MCD500
RMS Power 4 Ohms Mono (14.4V) 250x1
RMS Power 2 Ohms Mono (14.4V) 500x1
RMS Power 1 Ohm Mono (14.4V) na
Input Sensitivity 250mV-9V
Frequency Response +/- 1dB 10Hz-650Hz
Dimensions (in) 7.6 x 2.4 x 12.75
Optional Remote Gain Control MCRG

If you go to http://www.memphiscaraudio.com/ then click on products> click on the mcd1000 and the specs pop up. You dont want to do 8 ohms and it says not stable for 1 ohm.

Do you already have the amp? If not you should look into the Sundown SAE-1000D. It has more power and is super efficient. This will allow you to add another m3 someday if you wanted or in the future if you switched subs you'd have more flexibility to run 1 ohm.

PM James for a price on the Sundown.

There was a member trying to sell a MCD-500.1 a while ago but I'm not sure if he sold it or not.

No problem man, glad I could help. It might cost you a little bit more upfront but you really do get what you pay for and the flexibility makes it worth it.
