You were lucky. My experience was much different. Dishonest auction description just to try to make a few extra bucks.I have purchased from joma a couple of times. Never had a problem and the amps were exactly what he said they were. Definitely was not a great deal $$ wise, but the price was fair and he happened to have what I was looking for at the time. Just my 2 pennies.
Your power numbers are right for your level of mods. Pretty much just about the peak for the "normal" mods, provided you can give the amp enough battery.Ray emailed me a while back stating that I could get at least 850 watts RMS out of a modded 5002 @ 8 ohms and expect 1600 to 1700 watts of peak power. Depending on which revision you have will determine how much power the 8 ohm high voltage mod will get you.
As for 6Appeal.... He has spent major money modifying his 5002s and I would be willing to guess that he is getting close to 2000 watts RMS out of his!
Rich, Your 3.2's are pretty much the same as my 5002's. But, you get there with less amperage draw because they are more efficient. Still, one of those has the ability to burn up all the wiring in your truck. The MG would just melt into a pool of molten metal.:laugh:SQMGB said:A stock 5002 is stronger than a stock 2.2HV at 4 or 8 ohms. 5002 is 250x2, 2.2HV is 125x2 at 4 ohm stereo. Modified to run 8 ohms a 5002 can be insane.
I'm not sure which is stronger, my 3.2HV's which are 8ohm only now, or my 5002 which can do both 8 and 4ohm. My MGB doesn't have enough battery, alternator, or weight carrying capacity to run them. Maybe John can chime in???
You are going to get at least your 4 ohm stereo power @ 8 ohms mono, probably more! I plan on running an unmodified 5002 to my JL Audio 13w6v2.I'm not worried about modded power jerks, but now you have me wanting to do so.
I'm concerned about stock power levels. My 2.2HV is stock, and as far as I know the 5002 is stock as well. My plan is to move the 5002 to sub duty, and sell cry my 2.2HV. That is of course if the 5002 will give me the same power bridged running 8ohms as the 2.2HV does.
Since the 2.2HV grew out of the 2502, it would make sense that it would be similar in the power rating. But the 2.2 is stronger than the 2502, IMHO. I agree that it's pretty close to the 5002 (in stock form). I might have to take one of my 2.2's to Ray for a little power test to get some actual numbers.The 2.2 will put out way more than 125 x 2, WAY more. I really wish I could get one tested. I would say it's well over 200w x 2.
