    are both subs DVC 4's? the Rockford is rated at 1050 mono, the KX12001 is rated at 1200, but I know it does 13801-550. Not sure how over rated the RF is.

    Re: rockford 1051s or kicker kx1200.1

    depends how much room you have also because the kicker is long with its shroud on. The Rf is a solid amp and I would choose that over the kicker. But since you already have all kicker gear get the kicker.

    If the prices are anywhere similar I'd take the kicker hands down. Haven't been impressed by the s series.
