Re: New system, first timer
According to the user manual the 2011 DX shows 1000w @ 2 ohm @ 14.4v. I would stick with the manual and not go below 2 ohm.
I have ran 4 12" Type R's sealed with 1000w rms to each pair and have no complaints other than my cracked dash and overhead console shook loose.
Just my opinion but dont fire your subs straight up unless you enjoy listening to your cab flex rattle.
No experience with ported but I am sure you will get some help with this.
Should be a nice daily driver.
