    is 2 IA 20.1's strapped with the gains down overkill on an 18XXX?

    My plan is to run 1 20.1's to an 18XXX, but I do have a 2nd IA 20.1 also, would this be WAY to much at 1ohm?

    Most likely overkill, but should wang hard if you do it right. Make sure your electrical is up to par or your system won't be happy for long.

    One 20.1 would be plenty for the xxx.
    No sense putting two on it, in my opinion.

    i think one will do ya just fine. if i had to guess, i would say put around 2k on it and you will be happy. putting the 2nd on there will most likely be too much. that 1800@1 ohm is just a lie. they can easily put out 2500. 2k and the XXX will be happy, especially in that fabulous box

    What a waste of amp, LOL sell that sub and get an HD3 18'' from Audioque when they come out, that wouldnt be overkill.
