Do you mean your subs are 2 ohm or 8 ohm rated, as in they have dual 4 ohm voice coils?

This PRS-X320 amp only runs 100x2 at 2 Ohms. the subs have a 400 watt RMS. that is only 1/4 the power. The GM-X962 has much more power, but i have heard that the premier amps are way underrated. what would be the problem with the GM-X962?

So if 1 puts out 400 watts RMS then i would need 4 of them to power each sub to the full RMS amount. Or could i just use 2 and put out enough power to all 4. I want these to bump really hard and i want all of the suggestions i can get.

I have considered the premiers but not the TS-W12PRS. They are way too expensive.

If i get a premier amp then i will most likey get the TS-W1241DVC subs(4 of them) im hoping that i can be heard from a great distance. That is why i want a ported box instead of sealed.

with the premier subs do you think that i will have a good loud clean sound?

i found a premier amp for 334$ on ectronics.

ive been looking at this sub http://www.etronics.com/product.asp?...=piotsw1241dvc

when it says sealed subwoofer does that mean that it should only be run in a sealed box and nothing else.

ive also heard in this forum that if you make a precise enough ported box that it can make just as clean as sound as a sealed box but it will put out more power and boom

is that true?

i have a poted jbl subwoofer in my living room(12 ") and this thing hits hard as hell and has very clean sound for a ported. my friend has a fusion sub in a sealed box(now has 4 of them and it is loud as hell) and he said that the jbl sounded as good as his fusion. I figured that i could use the same type of idea as the jbl box and use it for my subs.

this is my reason for wanting a ported box so bad.

i was wonderin if homeaudio subs and car audio subs are the same or are they different?

**K, so you're getting 4 or 2 ? LOL, you're confusing me**

Anyways, if you're getting 4 of them, then I'd recommend the PRS-X720 ... puts out close to 850 RMS @ 4 ohms

In the process of building an enclosure for 2 12" Magnum D2's... should be fun :thumbsup
