    Is this amp too powerful?

    I have two 10 inch Kicker subs that have a 150rms and max out at 300 watts i think and im going to buy this 750 watt amp with 350 rms. Am i going to overpower the subs and fry them? I dont plan to max them out or anything, just looking for some big bass.


    It should be fine but im wanting to make sure.
    Oh and i can wire the 4 ohm speakers to the 2 ohm amp just fine right?
    Also will my headlights dim at all with the amp?

    2 - 4 ohm speakers wired in parallel = a 2 ohm load.

    You will be fine with a 350 watt amp on subs that are rated 300 for the pair.

    You will prolly not have "big bass" with that kind of power.

    My description was wrong i think. the model is Kicker 08ZX7501 Class D Mono Subwoofer Amplifier-750-Watt. Im pretty sure its actually 750rms.

    it is 750 rms at 2 ohms, and as long as you set your gains properly you will be fine, for example i run my speaker amp 377rms per channel into 4 ohms on 100watt rms speakers.

    there is no such thing as to powerful of an amp. set your gains with a scope and a dmm and you will be fine



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage
