    XXX's amp question..im sure its been asked 1000s of times

    sorry for asking this...


    i have a friend that wants me to pick him out a system

    needs

    HU
    amps
    subs

    soo

    he has $2000

    i have him getting 2 12" XXX's - $600+shipping
    and i need to figure out the amps

    what amps should I get and how many ohms are these things going to be wired to?

    I told him two 1200.1 JBL's..would that work or not??

    thanks

    you could use 2 jbl 1200.1 but they wont get full power, but if u got 2000 to work with they would be a good choice.

    where can i get 2 jl 1000.1 for $1000? I know our local sells them for about $1000 a PIECE! Online i'm quite wary..cause I know JL HATES online retailers..so I dont know if its safe, because I dont want something going wrong and the online bastards not replacing it or anyhting..cause i cant send it to jl because they will be *****es about the online retailer thing.

    I don´t know if the XXX are like the brahma that if you give them the rigth box they need much less power that the rated to get the max excursion, because if they do, you can make a fairly big box and with just one amp with 1500 watts you can be done like the one listed in the PG thread.. the Phoenix Gold Octane-R R15.0:1 $384.99 would be good

    but if you want to give them close to the 1600rms rated power then the Phoenix Gold Octane-R R30.0:1 (3000rms at 2 ohms) would do pretty good for 619.99

    PG is a good brand, don´t know about those lines of amp but i think they would be good too.. and cheap...

    also look at the size of the alt because 2 amp migth be too much for the alt....

    good luck!

    just get 2 RE 35-1 Amps each put out 1500W and are under-rated a good bit, put out closer to 1600 - 1700W each, 2 of those for about 720 shipped

    You won't need all 1600 watts to hit the x-max, I can in a 3 cubic foot sealed box of a jbl 1200.1 w/my 15" XXX. You could get two 1200.1's, but you'd need a 200 amp alt.
