    JBL 1200.1 or 600.1 for 2 12.1 perfects ?

    Okay guys, final decision. JBL 600.1 or 1200.1 for two 12" infinity perfects 12.1 ?

    Somebody told me the 1200 is too much power for two of 'em while some other people tell me to get the 600.....still some suggest to get 1200.

    You can't go wrong with the 1200.1, just don't be a volume master!!! Are you looking to upgrade?

    what do you mean a "volume master" ? i am running a sony xm-1502 760 watt into my infinities right now and their 150 watts each @ 4 ohms.

    that's a crap load of power. that's why i want to push more.

    Don't turn the gains all the way up. 150 sounds like a lot of power and to the ear it is. Doubling your power will only increase the sound level an average of 3 dbs.

    Take the 1200.1. It may be a big current monster, but you'll be better off with the excess power as long as you don't get crazy on knob. I would look to bumping up to 3 perfects on the 1200 and run it at a 1.33 load. Your power will match up good with a little in reserve. The down side is that the amp will be a little more power hungery and run a little warmer, but it will be ok.

    I have the 1200.1 and 2 perfects

    I would say get the 1200.1 (it is a better deal)

    but keep the gains down on the amp (I never turned mine up full blast)

    and then when you get more money get some better subs (that you now will take the power) then turn the gains up and run it at full


    but if your perfects are under warentee, then go all out, (assuming you can get them replaced if 1 blows)
