Hi, I have a Sundown x18. it is 1250 watts rms and I am looking at hooking this up in my house next year for parties. What do I all need so that this can work in the house? Also, what do i need to know so that i can be sure that it will not keep tripping the breaker and that the house has enough power for it? If there is anything else that i need to take into consideration that i am forgetting please let me know. Thank you!

How are we supposed to give you advice if we don't know how you are powering your sub and we don't know what you are drinking?

I will be using an amp that is a minimum of 1500 watts when bridged down to two ohms, but have not decided on the exact amp yet. And I will be drinking whatever keg shows up in our basement that night ??

I would highly recommend that you keep a very good relationship with your Neighbors and do NOT forget to Invite them to said party. Might just pay off after said party!

You need a reciever with a dedicated sub channel, an external hifi amp a set of midrange speakers and a dedicated tapper. It would be easier to integrate a powered sub, but given the amout of gear you need I doubt you'll be interested in that route.

You might have to wire the coils in series to an 8 ohm load for most 110v amps to be happy. And an inverter to run the car amp would have to be huge and pull mega current. I think you'd be better off just building a home setup and forgetting about trying to run the car stuff in the house.
