    He is buying the MTX Audio Terminator Series TNE212D 1,200-Watt Dual 12-Inch Sub Enclosure. They will NOT handle 400 watts rms per sub. I would run a true 4 hundred watt amplifier to this enclosure.

    Whats your budget OP?

    Sorry man, but the 400 watts rms is per pair. NOT per sub. The enclosure that you mentioned has two single 4 ohm sub paralled together for a 2ohm load. They will handle 400 watts as a pair. Plus they are in a 5/8" MDF sealed enclosure with NO bracing. Not sure what you paid for it. But you should have researched a little more. Maybe, they will do what you want. But for most of the people on here, they would be able to get louder with one 8" sub. Not trying to knock you, but to come on here and try and call mylows10, a well respected vendor, a retard is not gonna get you much help around here.
