    They're not terrible for a beginner amp mine was a kicker sx1250.1 and I hated it ...

    (Not doubting you man, just never heard american bass subs)
    As long as you keep the signal clean, The XFL will take 1500 like a champ, or 2 of them will get down on 750 ea. Heck, on the 1500w Kicker, I would do 2 600w AB TNT1222's wired to 2 ohms. Personally, I like the most cone area I can fit.. Some people run the XFL's on 2k rms daily here...but any sub is destined to die on too much clipping.
    Here is the deal with American Bass..They have been in business and ran by the same people for almost 20 years. They have always been Competition oriented, and still are to this day. They have always been a word of mouth company and have been, IMO, one of the most successful brands in car audio competition. There are not many amps that can be driven damn near to a dead short (1/4 ohm)and survive like they do. Those VFL sumbitches just keep making power. And it is clean power too. I would take that VFL 100.1 over the Kicker any day of the week.

    They do rated, they last, and if u feel like the price is right then you have every reason to buy it. It'll keep up with pretty much any other recommendation they could offer and beat some of them.
    I know bro. I feel like everyones making it like Kicker has become DUAL over night.. -_- I'm not saying there isnt better for the MSRP price they have some kickers for, but if you could find it cheap why not get it. It's cea comliant, has a 2 year warranty on them and comes with a Birthsheet with higher rated rms then advertised. Maybe it's just me. Kicker isn't terrible.. maybe not top quality.. but definitely not terrible.

    I never said or argued that I'm still buying a kicker amp.. I'm just stating that I don't think there as bad as everyone makes them out to be.

    I think this site has given you everything you need to decide, a lot of people here including me will say we think like you before.

    good luck I hope you make the right choice.

    Re: How do you think this new system will sound?

    birth sheets are just a marketing ploy yea it shows they do a little more than rated but so does my aq3500.1 and it doesnt have a birth sheet just something to think about
