Default atomic apocalypse 12''. is it 1000 rms or peak ?

i have 2 of the older model atomic apocalypse 12'' subs, the ones with the
older 4 spoke style baskets like the older original hccas.. not the newer looking btl baskets.


atomics website says 1000 watts.. a buddy of mine who owns a custom car audio shop say they will take 1200 rms each..

are they rated at 1000 rms or peak each sub..? and what could thet safely take all day. ?

Yeah, if I'm not mistaken, Atomic always rates there subs at RMS power and never puts a peak rating on it unless it's a burp rating like with the APX and APXX.

Are you running a 22" ELE? I've got an 8-layer 3" D2 APX 18. Needs a recone.

Nah, I'm running 4 18" ELE's. If that it's an 856 and you want to sell that motor I may know someone who's willing to buy it if the price is right, gotta find out if he's still looking for a motor though.

And if I'm not mistaken again, I'm pretty sure Atomic doesn't make a 22", I think it's a 24" sub.

I put 3500wrms to it. Was fine for burps, but popped the spider ring on music. Glued it down and sold it so I dunno how it would do afterward.
