Re: Amp to power my new subwoofers
If you're running the Kenwood amp on 2 woofers, the subs are probably wired to 2 ohms. In which case, you have less than 200wRMS on each woofer. That is only 1/3 of the power they can handle.
I'd unhook the setup, and wire it to 1 of your subs, with that sub in parallel. That means the amp + goes to both subwoofer + terminals. Similarly, for the -.
This will use 1 woofer, wired to 1 ohm, maximizing your amp's output, and fully powering 1 sub. You'll move plenty of air with that one woofer.
If you do upgrade amps, your looking for something that will do 1000-1200 @ 2 ohms
