    What to subs to run off Kicker ZX1500?

    So I'm getting a ZX1500 in a trade, now I'm wondering what subs to run?


    Any suggestions? I was thinking a 15" BL or 2 12" Fi Q or 2 12" SA-12


    Also, will my electrical be able to run that amp daily? If I keep the gain around 1/3 way up?


    My setup consists of:

    RF 400.4
    ZX1500.1

    so around 1900 watts give or take, will that be okay on my: 90 A alt, yellow top, big 3 done?


    Or should I get a second battery like Kinetic HC800?

    And what amp is better for my electrical:

    AQ 1200 at 1 ohm, or ZX1500 at 2 ohm

    Even though one is 300 watts more powerful, does having it run at 2 ohms make a big difference? I ran a 1200 watt RMS amp on my stock electrical before the upgrades and I got bad head light dimming, but now with around 1200 watts RMS I don't get any dimming at all.

    watch your voltage and look into buying a Deka G31 off here for the cheap. Run 0 gauge and I think you'll be okay. I think it'll end up being around the same draw because you're move efficient at 2 ohms.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Now what subs should I run?

    I REALLY want to use my box for 2 12", since I have 3 sub boxes laying around I really don't want to add more to the collection. It is 3.0^3 with 1.5 per sub, tuned to 32 Hz slot ported, with a decent size port. What subs will go good in there for good SPL and decent SQ?

    I run a sealed 12" Q off of one in my trunk - about 1000W at 2.8 ohms and it slams and sounds great. ...and it is small.
