    question about amps

    How do you know what kind of amp to get to power your subs? is it a rule you use to figure it out? Like, if Joe Blow came to me and said find me an amp to power my 2 12's, that are 800 watts RMS total, DVC, and at 4ohms or something, how would I recomend a good amp for him in terms of mono, 2-ch, the wattage rating on the amp etc.?

    thanks in advance to all who answer. i'm trying to learn more in this area.

    Re: question about amps

    yeah, first figure out the impedance you're working with...like figure out whether the amp needs to produce max power @ 1 ohm, 2 ohms, 4 ohms, etc...

    then decide how much power you need at that lowest impedance...

    then figure out what brands satisfy your needs, and features and crap like that...

    hope this gets you started at least.
