    Icon32 which amps to buy

    i have 4 12" resonant engineering XXX's and i need somthing to power it.
    this is a daily driver but i do take it to shows so...

    -the amps need to look decent and be a fairly big name(judges dont like small name businesses for some reason)
    -it cant be to big because they are going to be flush mounted on the top of the dash

    thx n advance
    happy holidays

    -capone

    How many do you have; I wouldn't use them all at once....



    Just Kidden,

    What Voice Coil Option did you get on them?

    Your gonna need some phat power to run 4 of those and everyone will tell you u'r nuts for running 4 in a daily driver...

    Depending on the V.C.s I'd say look for a Hifonics 1500D for each sub....

    What are you putting this in???

    How big of a Box are you planning?

    Re: which amps to buy

    ok, you HAVE to get a new high output alternator bb4 you get your amps. IT IS REQUIRED with that much power...not recommended...you need it. www.excessiveamperage.com and look into a 400 amp alternator. Also, you'll prolly need 2 yellow tops in the rear...and a red top up front for starting. Also, how much room you got to salvage? u'll need at least 2 cubes a piece for them...and as he said...what VC config you got...dual 2ohm or dual 4ohm. Then u'll be able to get some better idea's on amps. Also, bigger brands?? well obviously RE isn't a mainstream brand...so why u have to go mainstream amps...j/w PLUS, post some pics of the cutty...u gotta love em. good luck, peace

    Re: which amps to buy

    werd, sounds good man. BUT, i'd seriously look into dual alts or just one big 400 amp alternator. Might as well make sure it fits the new crate engine i guess...but you WILL need it with the amount of power needed for 4 XXX's. Also man, ride sound sweet...got a local shop with a sea blue one with 26" spinners on it...it's got chrome nerf bars on it to step in....crazy. but yeah...i'd look into something like dual orions, maybe tru-tech H-1's, or tarantula's if u have the money. peace
