    Not sure what subs to get.

    What subs (preferably fosgate) can I pick up that will use the whole 500 watts rms of my amp at 2 ohm? The box I have fits three subs tho so im not really sure what subs I could use or in what combination to get the most from this amp.

    hmm the dude I bought the box from had 3 p1's in it and over powered the **** out of it and it was fine till the subs blew like a year later.... since im not trying to push nearly that much power through it now that its my box I dont see a problem. But since you said something what would you suggest, build a new box?

    Def would suggest building a custom box and with only 500 rms probably just 2 subs ported. then get 2 p1's and put em in there.

    This system is going in a 89 mustang gt I think 2 10s ported would be tooo big. The new fosgate p1's have 250 rms max.... if i get 2 of them wire them together does it double the max power? Sorry its a dumb question but im new to this stuff.

    yes if you have two 250rms subs and wire them right then you would want 500rms to power them
