    Kicker ZX 700.1 @ 1 ohm?

    so, ive been reading that pple run the ZX amps at 1 ohm with proper electrical without problems. what kind of electrical are we talking about here?

    it will probobly be going in a 2003 Volkswagen GTI or Turbo S. my old Turbo S sat at 13.8V at idle with my old system on(TMA500.1 @ 2 ohms and factory everything else) with just an optima yellow top. what would i need to do to make the amp run at 1 ohm without issues?

    ZX amps are rated for 2 ohms, it's the amp itself that can't handle 1 ohm, not your electrical... You'll hear about a lot of people using ZX at 1 ohm, but you'll also hear about lots of fried amps.

    well 1 of 2 things will happen. it will be fine, or it will(hopefully) protect. either way it wont see 1 ohm often if at all. if it puts out the 700@ 4 ohms @ 14.4V then i will probobly be happy and leave it.

    but if i wanted to run it at 1 ohm what would be reccomended to help it cope?

    Pretty sure that they do 700 at two ohms. My bro ran a 1000 @ 1 ohm without problems in an Explorer. Not that I recommend it. He's kinda tarded.

    It is rated at 700 rms @ 2 ohm and will put out more loaded at 1 ohm. Most have had success doing this with the older zx amps. Very solid amps.

    @wickedwitt

    Someone high light the user name there. That dude knows everything about kicker amps.

    Re: Kicker ZX 700.1 @ 1 ohm?

    ill probobly get one of the custom Big 3 kits from here to do that. and there is a chassis ground like 6" from where the amp will be mounted. i plan to use 0ga OFC with an inline fuse for wire. as long as my voltage stays at +14v i should be fine is what ur saying?
