    What Amp should I get for 2 sony xplod 350 rated subs?

    I have two Sony EXPLOD subs installed. (Sony XS-GTX121LS 30-Centimeter Loaded-Enclosure Series). and they are currently wired to the factory sub in my 2002 Cadillac Deville.

    I need to know what amp to order, I will be having a professional do the install and i want it to sound good. He will sure it from the existing factory wire and Use an LOC to connect to sub.

    what amp would sound best for this setup?

    The subs are in the trunk and here are the specs:
    12"
    4ohm
    1200 watt max, 350 rated.

    Thanks in advance

    Right now the AudioTechnix subs and amps are really cheap. You could do 1 12 on the 400.1 or 2 12s on the 800.1 and get a custom box built, you'd be amazed at how much better and louder it sounds

    What's the voice coil configuration on those subs if you're dead set on keeping them?

    if i understand your question, and from the information i can get from the interweb: "4-ohm voice coil". but another site said single voice coil.

    i am by no means an expert. i hope that clears anything up. my original post to start the thread has the information on the "model" of this sub.

    Re: What Amp should I get for 2 sony xplod 350 rated subs?

    both of those sites are correct. it's a 4 ohm single voice coil.



    Head Unit: Pioneer avh-4300dvd,
    Front Stage: Ascendant Audio 6.75", Massive Audio 28mm tweeters
    Rear Fill: Massive Audio CK6-3 6x9 Woofers
    Amps: PPI Phantom P900.4, Sundown Audio SAZ-2500D
    Sub: RE Audio XXX 12" 2.25^3 Tuned to 32

    They sell Kicker at Wal-Mart now. That's saying a lot..

    Alright, both of them wired in parallel will produce a final ohm load of 2. You'll want an amplifier that will put out somewhere around your subs RMS at 2 ohms.

    Yup, that's what you want to look for. Many amp will wire below that (1ohm) but your concern will be the power output at 2ohms.

    I'm glad to see everyone actually being helpful in the thread even if it's not equipment you would recommend.

    Re: What Amp should I get for 2 sony xplod 350 rated subs?

    So in the end you want an amplifer that will do around 350-400 watts RMS by 4ohms x 2 (2 channel amplifier), or an amplifier that will do around 700-800 watts RMS @ 2ohms x 1 (1 channel or mono or 2channel that is bridgeable)
