    Re: what amp for my subs?

    what is the voice coil configuration on them? heard good things about the jbl 1200.1. it's 1 ohm stable if they are dual 4 ohm and it outs out 1200 rms at 1 ohm and 2 ohm so whatever voice coils they are it should do fine. i don't think it comes with a ssf so you might want to buy one of those f-mod things if you go with the jbl

    the subs have dual 4 ohm voice coils

    isnt a jbl 1200.1 a little high priced though?

    Check the sticky in the Amplifiers section....I'm too lazy to copy amps from there and paste them here

    the jbl 1200.1 goes for $250 at ikesound. you can probably find them cheaper than that.
