    Does this subwoofer and amplifier combination spell disaster?

    Two Kicker 2-Ohm 12" CompVT's

    +

    Hifonics Txi1008D Class D Mono Amplifier

    Wired to present a 1-Ohm load on the amplifier resulting in 1000watts to each subwoofer would this overpowering the subwoofers to a dangerously high point? Even if I took the gains down a tad.

    you having an amp that can do 1600 rms and having the gains all the way down does not mean you are giving them 1600

    RMS Power Rating:
    4 ohms: 350 watts x 1 chan.
    2 ohms: 700 watts x 1 chan.
    1 ohm: 1000 watts x 1 chan.

    You will only be giving each sub ~500 watts and that is saying the amp will put out a true 1000watts. You should be fine just watch the gains and set the subsonic filter.
