    Icon31 JBL 1200.1 or Soundstream Rubicon II 1002

    I will be pushing either 2 12" JL audio w6 or 2 Alpine Type R 12" D1241, and I really don't know what to go with. The JBL 1200.1 or the Soundstream Rubicon II 1002, I have noticed everyone here loves the JBL. I am new to the car stereo game and someone told me that the 1200.1 is a 1 channel Amp and cannot be used for 2 subs only 1, I think he is wrong. How would installation differ if i connected 2 12"s to the JBL?

    You can connect the JBL 1200.1 to 2 12s no problem....however, if you have the money to buy the Soundstream Rubicon, buy it! Soundstream will outperform (in every way except cost) the JBl hands down. Also look at the Zapco Reference 750 or 1000 or the Arc Audio 1500.

    Goodluck

    THOSE jl 12's are those the new 2002 model v2's or not??

    anyways

    if u get that jbl amp.. run those subs @ 4ohms buddy not 1 plsssssss don't run 2ohms either

    those jl rms isn't that high...

    but if u decide to kill them by running 2 ohms, get the amp adjusted...
    jl is known (don't get mad folks for me stating this) for handling clean watts even if its the max amount of watts of the sub

    for example

    rms on my 2 is 600 watts

    i'm putting 1000 watts rms to both...

    subs still knocking perfect....

    due a great ported box that matches the specs of the sub, an adjusted amp, and a good amp...
