Rockford Fosgate 12" POWER HX2

anyone really know anything about this beast. some one sold me a brand new one for literally dirt cheap. its brand new never been played. its DVC x 2ohms 2000 watts max power 1000 RMS. never heard one nor seen one before but its specs seem the exact same as the T2. anyone had any experiance with this sub, good things bad things? Guess wut i payed for this thing.

and sum pics




as you can see there is the ussual cosmetic damage on the underside of the motor. other than that, its cherry.

thanx for any replies

i picked her up for 50 bucks. cant wait to see what it will do. i get a hard on everytime i walk into the room. wut kinda enclosure should i get/build. any ideas? ive never really built my own enclosure B4, so i dont really know where to begin. lol, also wut kinda amp/amps should i run? should i strap one on each coil @2ohms @ say 500or750rms? or go with one 1ohm stable amp? @ like 1000or1500rms? i dont know wut to do. id really like to see wut the full potential of this beast is.......

Look for an monblock amp that does around 1000-1500Wrms like you pointed at 1ohm and bridge the two coils. Best and easiest way to set it up.

Thumbs up

If you want loud, these subs like big boxes, and big slot ports.i would suggest you use one amp at 1 ohm just dont play it loud all the time due to possibilty of quick overheating...depending on the amp. And i would say you shouldnt worry about feeding it a little more then its rated rms power, these subs will take it. Also if it has not been used at all yet...which i highly doubt, play it for a few hours at low volumes to break it in. If you tell everyone what you are looking for in performance somebody can help you with box suggestions and perhaps full project plans.
