    you dont need any insane electrical. i did it with whats in my sig. you need a good alt, a couple good batteries, and some 1/0... which you should have anyway for an amp that big.

    mine didnt even get hot, it would be warm to the touch, but not hot.

The amp is made for 2 ohms, if you wanna use it you get sub(s) that wire to 2 ohms. You guys are too caught up on amps that do 1 ohm. If your sub(s) final load is 2 ohms get the kicker if you need 1 ohm get the fosgate or even a sundown.One amp is not better than another cause its rated for a lower load. I actually prefer amps that do most power at 2 ohms or 4 ohms myself. Just for the record, many guys have ran the zx2500.1 at 1 ohm with no problems.
    I have ran a T2000bd @ .5 ohm and it did fine... It got pretty warm but it never went into protect.



    I enjoy the sound of pressure

    Mean Green 200A alt, Kinetik 1400 and 2400 under the hood, an extra battery or two in my tool box. 4 runs of 1/0 from front battery to amps, 4 runs of 1/0 from tool box to amps. On a burp I think my voltage drop went to about 12.8 or 13.

    it depends on what your setup is going to run at..there both nice *** amps so if you need a 1 ohm stable amp take the rockford, but if you need a 2 ohm stable amp go with the kicker

    The 2500's will do good on low amounts of fusing too

    Re: kicker zx2500.1 or rockford fosgate 2000bd

    i had a 2000bd for several years and loved it. very clean and strong. kinda off topic, but i recently got my first AQ2200 and love it. in my opinion, it is cleaner sounding than the rf and for the price of 389 shipped, hard to beat.
