I couldn’t finish the What Amplifier Do I Need? series without talking about one of the best square subwoofers in the car audio industry, the Kicker Solo-Baric L7 Series Subwoofer. This woofer is available in 4 sizes, an 8”, 10”, 12”, or 15” with each size having the option of a Dual 2 ohm impedance or Dual 4 ohm impedance. The RMS ranges from 450W to 1000W depending on the size of the woofer.
Massive Audio N2
The Massive Audio N2 Nano series amplifier is the perfect match for when looking to amplify a S8L74 L7 woofer or even two of those woofers to a final impedance of 1 ohm. If you want a little more power this amplifier can also properly power up a single S10L72 or S12L72 subwoofer to a final impedance of 1 ohm, offering multiple wiring capabilities. This amplifier features a relatively small chassis along with built-in noise reduction circuitry. Its Nano technology provides ultra efficient power supplies, while the low-pass and subsonic filters allow you to really tweak your sound reproduction.
Hifonice Brutus BRZ1200.1D
The Hifonics Brutus BRZ1200.1D amplifier allows you to take full advantage of the power handling capabilities of the S15L72 to a final impedance of 1 ohm and the S15L74 to a final impedance of 2 ohms. You can even wire up two S8L72 woofers together to a final impedance of 2 ohms. This amplifier will give you so many wiring options you won’t know what subwoofer you really want. The amplifier is CEA-2006 compliant meaning that the stated rated power is accurate. Its 4 way System Protection circuitry will keep your system running efficiently without problems and at the same time provide protection if needed. The BRZ1200.1D brings power, efficiency, performance and affordability.
DLS CAD 11
Another great amp would be the DLS CAD 11 classic series amplifier. Much like other amplifier this one also provides you with a number of wiring options. You can wire a single S8L72, a single S10L74, S12L74 or even a single S15L72 subwoofer. DLS is considered a very high end company but their products speak for themselves. This amplifier will offer supreme clarity, efficiency, performance and a nice constant flow of power to avoid cutting and clipping. The amplifier also features low-level and high-level inputs allowing this amplifier to accompany any car audio system be it aftermarket or stock.
