    Icon32 Help with amp

    Hey can someone go to this link and see if this amp would be good for a kicker solo x. The kicker solo x is 5000 watts peak, a double voice coil, and its 4 ohms. I was just wondering if this amp would be good for this sub. Heres the link

    You should pay attention to rms power not peak. That goes for the sub and amp.

    If you're going for 2500wrms @ 2 ohms for $300 you need to be looking in the classifieds. I wouldn't buy anything with Boss on the box.

    Hifonics is gonna get you close but the 2 ohm thing is gonna kill you for the $300. 1 ohm wouldn't be so bad, but 2 is not as easy.

    What does 2 ohm and 1 ohm mean? The sub I have is a double voice coil 4 ohm so wouldnt i have to run it off of a 4 ohm amp?

    A dual 4 ohm speaker you can wire it to either 2 ohm or a 8 ohm load. The 2 ohm load you have to wire to 2 voice coils in parallel to the amplifier terminals, and for a 8 ohm load you need to wire the 2 voice coils in series to the amplifier. Ohm is the measurement for electrical impedance or electrical resistance.

    Ok so basically I need to find an amp with a high wattage at 2 ohms?
