    I have my choice down to two amps...

    I have two of these: Amazon.com: Kicker CompVR 07CVR124 12-Inch 4-Ohm DVC Subwoofer: Car Electronics (800RMS total ---- 4-Ohms DVC each)

    I've done a lot of research and I've narrowed my search down to these two amps:

    Amazon.com: AUDIOPIPE APSM-1500 1500 Watt Mono Car Audio MINI Amplifier Amp APSM1500: Car Electronics (Power RMS: 500W at 4-Ohm, 1000W at 2-Ohm, 1500W at 1-Ohm)

    and

    Amazon.com: Kenwood Kac-9105D 1800-Watt Class D Mono Amplifier: Car Electronics (Power RMS: 500W at 4-Ohm, 900W at 2-Ohm)

    If I get the audiopipe and wire the subs down to 1-Ohm it'd be bumping 750W RMS into each subwoofer that has an RMS of 400W and if I kept it at 4-Ohms it'd be 250W RMS into each subwoofer.

    If I get the Kenwood I would have to leave the subwoofers wired at 4-Ohms and it'd be bumping 250W RMS into each subwoofer.

    Which one should I get?

    the audiopipe would be clean power if you wire at 1 ohm and set the gain right.

    I would prefer to wire it at 4-Ohm vs. 1-Ohm. The hifonics at 4-Ohm is 450RMS for one sub and I have two so it'd be 225w to each sub. not good. The ab vfl is a little too much $$$$
