    What about the Kicker ZX2500.1?

    Not calling you a liar. I'm just asking. Not all amps and subs can handle what they say. I had 2 12 Memphis C3 (600rms) and the 1000/1 blew both of them. Now I have a 100/1v2 powering 2 12Memphis M5 and they are doing just fine.

    Re: I want 1500 rms @ 3 ohms.

    that was what i posted originally is the bdcp amp. constant power from 4ohms to 1ohm. i wouldnt mess with the zx2500 like most other things just not as good as the older KX line of kicker amps.

    i know, and i was just answering you bro. if it came off as sounding harsh or anything else i apologize. also you do know there is a difference of clean vs dirty power correct? that could be the culprit among a lot of things.

I would say that money is no object but then I'll be seeing people post $5000 amps. I sure don't want some Boss or any of that garbage either. 1500w @ 3 ohms. Help? Oh. And no I will not wire it to .75 like I see so many people putting on here. I want nice power but I'm not doing comps.
    You'd be better off wiring it to .75 ohms. You're always going to have box rise, which will almost certainly be over 1 ohm, unless 13W7's defy physics as well as reasonable pricing.

    Re: I want 1500 rms @ 3 ohms.

    since you folks keep insisting on wiring lower,

    Car Audio Tip of the Day:
    When deciding how to wire your subs to your amplifier, it's important to know that impedence DOES NOT JUST RISE. The reason it is called "nominal" impedence is because the coil will almost never be that impedence during play. On music your impedence WILL DROP sometimes to as much as 1/4 of nominal.
    For burps you can count on rise because you will have the most rise at your peak frequency and that's what you're burping at. For music you cannot count on it because it goes through lots of different frequencies and WILL drop on some of them. Wiring low for daily is NOT smart. We hear that lie all the time on forums about how the nominal impedence is simply the lowest impedence the coil will be and it only rises from there. That is NOT true. Don't fall for it. It's an expensive lie to believe.

    thanks to @cthedinger

    i guess i believe dingleberry, but I still don't understand how the impedance would drop... I work with electrical coils similar to VCs, and the only thing they do when power is applied to them heat up and thus increase their impedance. Physics, brah.

    Yeah. That's why I tried to match it with its "ideal" 1000/1 but just couldn't believe what happened to the amp with the melting. I've always had really good luck with JL but it may be time for a change.

    Re: I want 1500 rms @ 3 ohms.

    Wire it to 3 ohms and power it with the JL Audio HD1200/1(1200 watts rms @ 11V-14.5v).
