    Yeah, after Googling it I see what you mean. Now the thing is finding the right pair for my Impala as most I see are for Trucks. I guess I'll just call the company and see which one they would suggest using. Thanks mane!

    1 ohm 2800 watts. Really does about 3150 as Mmats always underates their amps.
    I prolly could do a half ohm and it could hit over 4K, but would blow pretty quickly.

    if you wanted to try a cheap option first you could see if your auto zone has these coil spring "plugs" that provide a little lift. Basically you lift the car up, and then place the plugs into the spring wherever they fit tight. drop the car back down and it basically just doesnt let that coil compress. Not sure how much it would help but I saw them a few months back at the auto parts store.

    Is getting heavy duty or truck /shocks/struts for the rear an option?

    In the trunk I have:
    DC XL 15s weigh 56 bls each
    Kenitik battery weighs 70 lbs
    Enclosure? I'm getting around 70 as well, maybe a little more.
    pushin a Mmats 3500 so I need the second battery.

    Please let me know what I can do to solve this issue besides downgrading my system. That aint happenin.

    I have a jetta. I bought a set of rear springs off a passat and swapped them out for my factory springs. Even with 550 of people in the rear seat. The rear end dropped maybe 1/2 an inch.

    So once I finish up my build. I know my rear won't be sagging. But my car will be slow AS H3LL

    You can always cut the springs until they reach the height you desire.
    I hope mine balance out. Otherwise I may have to cut them. They make the car look like a drag car. I hate how it looks.
