    Re: How many channel amp to run 3 subs?

    Those can take a little more than rated, I suggest something that's rated like 1200 @ 2 ohm..

    & wire like this:

    IIRC, Kicker has a 1200.1 that's rated 1200 @ 2 ohm, that'd be a good choice.

    You can only wire to 2 or 8 ohms if you're running one subwoofer. Unless you get 3 amps & wire each sub to each amp @ 2 or 8 ohm.. which would be dumb.
