    Best 12" subs for zx2500.1 ????

    I have a zx2500.1 (2 ohm stable) kicker amp and I'm looking to put 2- 12" subs with it. I would like to stay under 400 each. Thanks for your help.

    Can you be a little more specific on your goals? For example, loud daily driver, competition only, etc...

    Its one channel - 2ohm stable I thought? I could be wrong though

    This is what the Specs say:

    RMS Power Rating:
    4 ohms: 1250 watts x 1 chan.
    2 ohms: 2500 watts x 1 chan.

    Its for sure a 2 ohm stable amp..U need dual 2 ohm woofers wired in series then paralled back at the amp if u use only 2.. I would preffer 4 L7 12's but if you wanna go with 2 for right at 400 i would prefer x 12's..

    What about 4 ohm subwoofers, would dual coil work? Or do I need 2 single voice coil 4 ohm subs?

    Two dual 2 ohm subs is what you need. For $800 you have a LOT of options.

    So pretty much I'm looking for Two dual ohm subs that can handle about 1000rms per sub right??

    Is it bad to have two subs that can handle 1600rms each and have them be underpowered??

    Check these out:

    DD 3512
    DC level 4
    Fi Q or BL
    Incriminator Audio Death Row

    That should be a decent starting point.

    So would it be bad to have sub that are underpowered? Example- 2 subs that can handle 1600 watts rms but only have 1200 rms goin to 'em?

    Thanks again for all the help.

    Not at all. You can't blow a sub by underpowering it. But if you keep cranking the gains up on your amp to try and create more power you run the risk of sending a clipped signal to your sub---which can damage them.
