    Icon30 Can These Subs Take It?

    I have a sealed box that holds two 10" subs with .65 cu ft per chamber. I have two 10" Infinity Kappa Perfect VQ subs that have a 400 watt RMS power rating. Can I use my Audiobahn (I know it is a bad brand) A4801T amp to power these subs? It is a four channel amp which states that it is 250 watts RMS x 4 channels. I would bridge the amp to power the subs, in which it states that it would produce 700 watts RMS x 2 channels. SO, will this setup be safe and sound good? I really appreciate your replies. Thank you.

    Follow the gain setting tutorial that is stickied and you should be fine. If you have hesitations about it, simply back the gain down a hair after you have it set.

    Thank you. So now that I know that it can be done safely, what do you guys think about those subs? Do you think I will need anything along the lines of an upgraded alternator, battery, or capacitor?
