    Need a little advice/help...

    Hi guys I have a quick question for you all: I want to get 2 Kicker 10CVT12-4-N which are 400watts RMS 800w Peak each single coil 4ohm . I would run them parallel so total impedance will be 2 ohm.

    This is what I dont know. What amp should I get? the zx750.1 which has RMS 2 Ohms: 750 Watts x 1 Channel and peak of 2 Ohms: 1500 Watts x 1 Channel

    or the dx500.1 which has RMS 2 Ohms: 275 Watts x 1 Channel (d 1% THD+N) and peak 1 Ohm: 1000 Watts x 1 Channel


    I'm not sure Im getting mixed answers hopefully you guys can help me straighten this out..
    Thank you

    Subs are 400rmsx2 means you want around 800watt@2ohm. ZX does 750 the DX does 275.

    2 subs are 170 and the zx750 amp is 270. And that is my price range... unless if you have any better setup suggetions for that money? I'm open to suggestions.

    The subs are decent and for what ur paying u can't complain the amp is a pretty good amp but overpriced alot. This will wrk CAR MONO AUDIOPIPE AP-15001D CLASS D 1500 W AMPLIFIER | eBay

    Now use the 120 u saved and buy ur wire or whatever else u need.

    Re: Need a little advice/help...

    I already have the car wired. I dont know I never heard of audiopipe... I'd rather pay more and get a brand named amp. What about subs? Do you know anything about them good/bad? or "better" ones around that price range?

    Re: Need a little advice/help...

    ok I'll definitely consider getting those 2 instead. Now like that audio pipe amp, wouldnt that have TOO much power for those Kicks?

    No its rated at 900x1@2ohm so keep the gains down and bass boost off and you will be good to go.

    Just to keep it simple it causes clipping/makes distortion = dead sub

    Re: Need a little advice/help...

    The main reason bass boost isn't used is that it only boosts frequencies within a very small range, and often causes the amp to clip at a lower volume level than if the boost was off. With it off, you have a nice amount of mass over more frequencies at a higher volume, compared to a little extra bass at a certain frequency with it on.
