    elemental k's

    which amp would be better to run 1 12" elemental K at 2 ohms..... US Acoustics USX600D, or JBL300.1.... they both underpower it a little bit... is that okay?

    Puts out more watts.....better build quality......and durable as hell. The US Acoustics would survive getting dropped 10 feet onto concrete......well....maybe not 10 feet, but you get the point.

    i think 10 feet would be ok by the look of the "tank armor heat sink"

    it says 509x1 @ 2 ohms at 11 volts...... doesn't it get more watts at higher voltage... don't most cars have 12 or something like that?

    most cars run at 14.4...at 2 ohms, that amp will probably put out 650+ watts...but it doesnt come out till the summer...

    Not really, if you know what youre doing and are careful with the gains, a ED K can take around 800 watts...I say go for a JBL 600.1...
