    Won't that be hard on my electrical system? I don't want to change my alternator and all that route. I'm going to do a big 3 upgrade maybe tomorrow afternoon though. Right now,,,I'm running Kicker ZX750.1 right now and my lights don't even dim after slamming the music for like an hour.

    1000-1200 RMS. That's where I get confused too. As the ohms drop,,,your amp has to work harder right? or more less controlled bass they say,,,but if the amp is 1 ohm stable,,,does it mean that it will run 1 ohm with CLEAN POWER? That's why I'm thinking of leaving it on 3 ohm so my amp and my electrical won't have to work so hard to give me that clean power. Am I wrong? I'm still a rookie.

    Re: Best bang for your buck for my system?

    youll be fine. run the sub at .7 and get a amp that does 1000rms at 1ohm and set grains correctly also do the big 3. there is a gain setting tutorial in the amplifier section.

    I learned the other day how to set it with DMM so that's not a problem. holy crap! .7ohm? How much am I looking at? Do I need to fork out like $500 for .7 stable amp?

    Thanks a lot regardless. You're trying to help a rookie. So many questions...lol. What do you think about AQ1200? I heard so many mix reviews on it but right now,,,it's on sale for $269 plus shipping to Hawaii which is like $55.

    the aq1200 is a good amp. I know you can run the 2200@.5 with proper electrical not sure about the 1200 though. Sent you a pm too. Also no 500 isn't need for 1000watts at 1ohm...

    yes that is a good amp and a good price to. just get a 1ohm stable amp its fine.

    this is only correct with a specific amp
    yes a t1000 will work harder to make 1000w at 1ohm than the 500w at 4 ohm
    but will a kicker zx1000 draw less voltage because its a 2ohm amp?
    no not at all

    1000-1200w will almost always be around 100-130amps of draw doesnt matter the ohm load if the amp is design to run it

    cheap amp look at the apsm-1300 or apsm-1500 cheap power decent reviews personally i would look for a t1000bdcp or a pdx-m12 pdx-1000.1 the rockfords constant power will throw about a 1000watt at it and the pdx is a regulated amp so it will give it 1000w

    Ok,,,didn't know it still draws that much power regardless of ohms. I learn something new here everyday. Thanks a lot. I'm liking the pdx so far and RF.

    Re: Best bang for your buck for my system?

    Wiring it to .7 would be your best bet. With ohm rise, you'll still be sitting around 1ohm anyways. The AQ1200 would be a good amp.
    I would never be able to justify the retail cost of an RF or Alpine. Solid amps if you get a good used deal on them though.
