    What amplifier should I get?

    What is the best/cheapest 800 watt RMS at 4-Ohm amplifier I can get?

    I need to power TWO 12" Kicker CompVR 4-Ohm subwoofers each at 400 watt RMS.

    Thanks!

    If they are 4-Ohm subwoofers why would I need to put out 800 at one ohm? (I'm new to this)

    doesnt change the wattage of the sub it self but the ohm load limits you to what amp you would want to run . changing ohm loads changes how much wattage comes out of an amp not the wattage of a sub . you want a 1 ohm amp because your subs will wire to 1 ohm final load

    If theyre CompVR's aka CVR's like he states hey have to be DVC unless they are like the 2001 models.
    If theyre just Comp then yes they would be SVC

    Re: What amplifier should I get?

    Posting of the subs specs states DVC4ohm, a pair will give him a choice of running @1ohm, or@4ohms depending on how he wires them
    Subwoofer Wiring Diagrams, Two 4 ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) Speakers
    I have a JBL GTS 600, that will move those pretty heavy @4ohms if interested in that
