    you could probaly through the BA 1600.1 at both of them. I've heard good thingas about them and they look sweet. I'm thinking thats the best for both those subs, 800 watts each should be fine (750 rms subs correct?) I think something like the nine.1 wont put those subs to their full potential...

    if it were me ide want to feed them full power. I eould want to do that with any sub though, cause im the type of person that would always wonder "how much louder will these be with more wattage?", and ide just kick myself until i knew. Those will still hit w/ 500 watts but i see no reason to go w/ the RF when the BA is prabaly a better amp and gives you better watage...


    ps. (im guessing you have the 12"s?)

    First, I got them from a friend who had them for a few months.
    Second, the birtsheets are around 1400 watts. So, the subs are taking some major power. Keep in mind to have the gains low, and not to go crazy when tweaking the bass adjustments. Also, I don't use this for a daily driving app either.

    I am getting 2 10 L7's and Im going to be using the MTX 81000D. Amp runs at 2 ohms and from what I hear they say 1500 watts but on the birthsheets you get anywhere from 50-an extra 200 some watts more.

    **** dude what kidn of alt you got in there?? 2800kw rms on a pair of L7 12"s is a lot but they can take that. if i would have gotten a new L7 i would have kept it modded my d300hc and ran 2500rms to a single L7 15". anyway i might get flammed for this but i had a MA 5011DX amp an i liked it a lot. also i would look at the MTX like suggested.
