    I need some advice on new 1-4ohm ******* amp!

    Hey guys!


    Got a really quick question for ya. As my sig. states, i'm running TWO<i know i know> W7's off one 1000/1 monoblock. Not exactly the greatest thing to do, but i can't possibly afford another 1000/1 and the electrical upgrade it would require. So here's my question...I am thinking about selling off this 1000/1 and going for a amp that would be able to push both subs without requiring an exstensive amount of upgrading to the alternator/electrical system. But the kicker about all this, i can't find a good one that has a rating spec @ 3ohms. You guys know the 12W7 is a 3-ohm sub. So now which amp would i be able to get to make those w7's pound the hell out of my Focus?! Or if you could tell me how to figure out the power rating of an amp @ 3-ohm, that would work too. All the amps i've ran across always do a power rating @ 2 and 4 ohms. What about 3 ****it?! hehe..anyways, as always any input would be greatly appreciated!

    The ohm load can only be 3 i believe. So the 1000/1 adjusts itself to that ohm load.

    you have 2 right? you can either get a 6 ohm load or a 1.5 ohm load( im pretty sure) so just get a 1ohm stable mono amp that does around 2000-2200 watts at 1ohm
