I need serious help i have searched all over the internet and have not found one thing! everyone is so helpful on this forum so thank you ahead of time for at least reading this (:

I am going to be purchasing Alpine SWR-12D4 just copy and search (:

They say rms power to be 300-1000 watts so i want to run them at 600 watts @ 4 ohms i need an amplifier that CAN power 2 subs at 600 rms so i need a true amp that has 1200 watt rms at 4 ohms but cant find anything on the internet....?

so this leads to my next question why not get 2 ohms seems like it is easier to find amps for that..???? and what is this 1 ohm some say it has to be absoultley stable i need this explained to me im young and about to get first car please help ! (:

This should help you understand ohms and subwoofer wiring. Also, you posted in this the classifieds section.

I personally like 2ohms for daily music,and will do just fine for you.Wont be easy to find an amp that will do approx 1200 rms @4ohms,if you do, it will not be cheap by any means.You can purchase 2-dvc2ohm subs,and run @2ohms,might be easier to locate an amp within your budget.Other than that, you have the option to still buy the DVC4 ohm subs, and run one amp ea to ea [email protected] ohms,would be another option.2ohms serves quite well,and most of the time cooler on most amps as well,as a bit easier on the electrical than a 1ohm load.

Wire them to 1 ohm, and find an amp that does 1200 rms at 1 ohm, this is not a big deal. It seems like you need to do a lot of reading before you venture into this.
