    Around 1500 Watts RMS

    I need an amp that can push around 1500 watts RMS at 2 ohms. I have one 12" Kicker L7 right now *DVC 4 Ohm* and I will be purchasing another soon. I was going to use the JBL 1200.1 to power these but for some reason I am kinda doubting that decision. Would the JBL amp make them hit good in a sealed box? I plan on building a ported box later but not right away. Also, would it be back to purchase a refurbed amp *the JBL on sounddomain*? Thanks for the information guys.

    With 2 DVC 4-ohm subs, you won't be able to wire them to a 2-ohm load, your choices would be 1 or 4. The JBL is a nice amp, I wouldn't worry about the refurb as it's on SoundDomain, refurbed from the factory with warranty.

    Are you planning on getting another amp when you get another l7?

    the JBL 1200.1 will do around 1.3kW at 2, close enough...

    Re: Around 1500 Watts RMS

    I appologize. I typed my post completely wrong. My L7's are DVC 2 ohms. I don't know why I decided to type 4...

    My plan was to buy an amp that could push around 1500 watts at 2 ohms and 750 at 4 ohms. Untill I buy the second L7, I would run the one L7 at 4 ohms. You guys think I should just stick with my original decision and get the JBL 1200.1?

    I would stick with your original decision. 1200 or 1500 will not make that big of a difference.

    Re: Around 1500 Watts RMS

    I think that the JBL1200.1 for $200 with a warranty is a steal, I might pick one up for my Ti. I've heard from a few different people that it's underrated, and it's 1-ohm stable, my brother had one with 3 12w6s, I think it was wired to 1.33 ohms or something like that, and it worked great for years until somebody stole it. I know it draws some current and has no SSF though.

    the JBL is one ohm stable, it just doesn't gain any power from 2 ohms...around 1.3kW or something like that.

    Nice amp, just a ***** to install though.

    Re: Around 1500 Watts RMS

    ever see the crossovers on one of the BP series? When you're upside down in a friend's trunk, with a mini-Maglite in your mouth and a screwdriver in the other, those **** tiny little setscrews and gain knobs that are barely marked get very annoying. On the other hand, my PG's, which have actual "knobs" instead of little tiny screws, are extremely easy to set and adjust.
