    Help Picking a amp for 2 xfls (12s)

    Im looking into either A - Audioque 3500, B- American Bass Vfl 200.1 Or C - American bass vfl 450.1.
    Im trying to get a good solid amount of power after box rise, ect. But i dont want to blow the subs. Im more of a daily ground pounder then doing burps ect. Which amp do you guys rec. and btw the only reason the 450.1 is in the equation is incase i want to upgrade a little later



    -My Current Setup-
    Head Unit - Pioneer AVH-P4300
    Sub - Audioque HDC4 15 - 4.0 Cu @33hz (Built By @DBeez ; )
    Amp - American Bass VFL 500.1 (.5 Ohm)
    Front Stage - Stock
    Electrical: 2/0, Big 3, 270 Amp DC Powered Alt. Batts: Coming Soon
    Tuned Low and need Fresh music ? >> http://www.datpiff.com/Team-LAF-Loud-As-Fu-Slowed-Low-Loud-Bangers-mixtape.514065.html <<

    AQ would be more then enough for that setup. If you can not get loud enough off 3-4k, then you're doing it wrong lol.

    To do a 150+ it takes more then just cramming on power and hoping for the best. It takes testing and time.

    I have seen 150's out of a trunk with far less.

    Rebelfromva had a single xfl 12 on a DC 2.0k and went 146 iirc on stock alt and 1 or 2 batts.. With a little extra power, extra sub, and the right adjustments, should be feasible.
