    What amp would push my two kicker comp subs prefurabally kicker amp

    What would be the best amp for two kicker comp svc 8 ohm subs i want a kicker amp so when i go to comps i have all kicker and it looks cool but doesnt really matter i right now have a kendwood 729s 600 watt amp that was recommened on here but i dont think that it does me subs justiice or i have them hooked up right i mean they hit and hit nice but still doesnt seen like they are hittin liuke they should have them in parrlell and running a 4ohm load bridged on my amp i belive and have the gain truned up half way. I was looking at a kicker zr 120 but i am not for sure if it would be anymore powerful that my kendwood i just need an amp thats more powerful than my kendwood without blowing my subs and under 220 dollars.

    amp for sub

    unregesterd- check out kicker zr 360
    you'll have more than enough power
    for your subs

    amp

    unregesterd-- look at you 12'' rms power of 125 watts
    per sub. the kicker zr-360 in bridge/mono at 4 ohm
    will send 266 watts of power per sub
    ( for a total of 532 watts)
    your max power of 300 watts per sub means
    that each sub will take 300 watts of power
    (for a short period of time )
    were as your rms power of 125 watts per sub
    means that each sub will take 125 watt of power
    for a long period of time ( all day long)

    try those subs in a sealed box

    using a ported box you will have to
    sample drifferent types of ported boxes
    to get the sound that you are looking for
    the choice of box is up to you.

    well a ported box will hit harder due to the fact that the ports tend to create more bass and the box is generally bigger but to get the proper sound it takes quite a bit more work....check out a book called the car audio cookbook...usually at your local library....gives all kinds of usefull info about car audio....
