    Opinions on a sub/amp combo.

    Man, am I glad I found this place!!!! I have been opened up to a whole new world of car audio I didn't even know existed!

    That said, I need an opinion on a combo.

    2 10" ED e10k44 (dual 4 ohm VC) in a sealed enclosure powered by a Tsunami DB1100 (1100W x 1 at 1 ohm).

    Correct me if my I'm wrong but this would be running at 1 ohm thus supplying the speakers with 550W a piece (rated at 650W max). The ED site says 200W-500W in a sealed enclosure for these subs. Are they going to be overpowered (will they blow) if I give'em 550W?Will this combo work well?

    Up until a few days ago I've been running 2 12" Kicker Free-Air's with a Kicker ZR600 in a vented box. The box is huge and very heavy. I drag race in the summers so I need something that pulls out quickly/easily on race days. As far as I can tell from ED's site, this box would be nice and small.

    I planned on doubling their plan for the single sealed enclosure. I looked at some of they're vented enclosures and those are very detailed!

    How will this combo compare to my current set-up? Louder, cleaner, etc? I'm new to all these brands. Where I live Kicker and JL rule.

    K's do very well in ported enclosures, the O's are what are only for sealed.
