I wouldn't buy anymore subs until you learn how to not blow them.

Haha not true. That amp simply should not blow those subs unless you're clipping the HELL out of it. What kind of box and electrical do you have?

Electrical upgrades?

What kind of batteries?

Enclosure size?

Sub voice coil config?

Gain settings?

(once you post these, I'm willing to bet I'll know why your ish is blown)

No all that's around here is ********* who think the only way to get louder is to crank the gain settings to max.

If you want some help please use an appropriate tone.

Ya do you have a DMM? (digital multi meter) You need to find your target voltage and use the DMM to set your gain. The gain position is dependent on input voltage too so you might get the full 4000 watts with 1/4 of the gain turned. Anything after that is just degrading the signal so far that its burning your subs.

What type of batteries are they?

Is your alternator stock?

If so what Amperage does it deliver?

( I would suggest a H/O Alt, More then 1 run of 0 AWG)

Not sure about your batts yet, but we'll see.

Oh yeah and buy a dmm, I don't leave home without it

Dropping to 10.35V, :crap: I hope you make enough $ to buy a new amp soon.

No, output voltage FROM the amp.

And 10.35 is gonna roast your amp soon.

No... if you're not blowing your subs you're not clipping the hell out of them (or overpowering them a ridiculous amount)... and both of those cases cause for poor SQ. So, you my friend, are a douche.

Two different versions?
Or did Kicker have the same T/S specs and just a different cone?

memphis mojo's would hit way harder but needs serious power. mtx 8000series or higher. alphasonik 800 or 900 series, diamond d3 or higher, re audio xxx, eclipse, ect..

not to mention....your box is about half the size it should be....should be like 8 cubes....and your ports are WAYYYYY to small....i'd go around 240 sq in of port for 2 12"s. Long story short....i can take lesser subs and get more SPL out of them with less power, your box *****
