    Icon32 Need help in deciding what amp to go with my subs

    I currently have 2 12" Kicker Comp VR's both the dual 4-ohm models in a sealed enclosure & I'm having a hard time deciding between 2 amps. I'm looking at either the Kicker KX1200.1 or the KX850.2, but I don't know which would be better. I want the absolute best (loudest) performance outta my subs & some places I went to said that I'd be better off with the 1200.1, but then other places told me that would be too much & I'd be better off with the 2 channel KX850.2 verses a mono amp. I'm clueless as to which would be better. Can anyone help me with this decision?

    KX12001...reasons, it's class D, so way more effecient that the A/B 850.2, remote gain and has a built in sub-sonic filter if you decide to port your drivers, and has a built in fan only if the amp needs it, like if it is mounted in the trunk on a hot summer day.

    My vote, KX12001. ...

    hope this helps.

    definately go with the mono amp... you said you wanted the most out of your subs. So if you have a mono amp you'll have the right amount of RMS(realpower) to push what ever you want and even if you have more power than you need...its better than not having enough.(turn down the gain)
