I have (6) EV MTL2B subs. Each cabinet is loaded with (2) EVX180B drivers, making each cab a 4 ohm load. I am told powering these cabs is 1200 watts.
Looking a for advise on amplifiers to power these subs.
Crest CA18 or Crown MA5000 - I am told these amps will run all day long at 2 ohms which would run (4) cabinets. The MA5000 runs in a mono-parallel mode down to 1 ohm - could I tie all the subs together @ 1.3 ohms and run them too?
I was also looking at the Crown 12000i I could run 3 subs a side @ 2.7 ohms or bridge the amp and run all 6 subs @ 5.4 ohms.
Or is the best option 3 amps, each amp running stereo @ 4 ohms. If so, what amps do people recommend for any of the applications of running these subs.
There will be times I only run 2 or 4 subs.
