    better have 2 each 800 kinetics, and replace your factory batt with the largest kinetic that will fit in your tray, and make 2 1/0 awg runs from your alt to your factory battery
    Went ahead and ordered my batts. I will be running a total of 2 kinetic 800 and then replacing my stock with a 1400. Got a TON of 1/0 so hopefully I will be done with some glassing projects when my batts get here so I can focus on some wiring.

    For the sake of keeping it RF I think I am going to see what happens if I run T1500-1bd's. Hopefully I dont blow out a sub. Guess I should get started on a build log.... I see tons of work in my future. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Early phases of my build but it is as follows...

    05 Magnum R/T
    Two Fosgate T215D2's for bumpin. Pioneer AVH-P3100 dvd. Custom two tone, smoke tail lights/head lights (all painted myself). Custom Fiberglass center dash bezel (stok radio is single din so I had to make it double din)

    Current projects...
    Custom fiberglass door panels and rear tail gate panel. Getting started soon on the mids and highs system. Also currently working on some apholstery stuff.

    i may very well be wrong
    do the new rockford t1500's make power at 2 ohms? and not 1 ohm ?

    get your batts and wiring updated before dropping in 2 new amps

    RF will yield more than rated power at least 5-10%

    try to get an alt

    after all this power is dedicated to your subs , you may drown out your factory front stage and it may need to be addressed so tuck some $ aside

    Re: How much more will my 15's take?

    Manufacturer RMS ratings are mostly based off of thermal limits, while you mentioning suspension parts and excursion is a mechanical limitation, which is based as much on enclosure size/type as it is on simple wattage figures.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    RF rates the t1500's at 1000 watt @2ohm. So I figure run each VC on its own seperate amp and I should be nearing the limit of what my sub will handle.

    Basically I got the batts on their way so I will take care of them first. Once I eventually get the amps in I will see how the car takes that load and go from there. I think I see an alternator in my future cause I also need to build a mid bass and mids/highs system.

    So what you are saying is that if I build the enclosure to a specific dimension I can "expand" if you will, the limits of my suspension and mechanical parts?

    Re: How much more will my 15's take?

    Pretty sure that Magnum comes with a decent 150 amp alternator, i know my Charger did back in 05/06. You also should have gotten bigger than a 1400, since your batterys in the trunk already, you basically could have fit any size you wanted. Any reason why you want a few smaller amps vs a RF T3000 or T4000? (I think they make the 3, i dont keep up on RF though?.)

    Re: How much more will my 15's take?

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^if the RF T1500 do 1000 rms at 2 ohms and you put one on each dvc 2 ohm 15" driver you will be giving the subs what RF says you should 1000 watts each

    though all RF do a bit more than rated on 14 volts

    as long as your happy with all RF equipment that is what matters


    I used to be heavy into RF as well a few years back

    Fosgate makes up to a t2500 mono amp. I want to keep it mono but I was thinking about doing the smaller amps so I could run at 2ohms for better efficiency and still get a couple thousand watts to each sub.
