    @!@!@ American Legacy vs. Rockford Fosgate @!@!@

    I just bought 2 12" Rockford Fosgate He2 subs. I haven't got them yet, and I don't even have a box.

    my question is HOW WELL do you think my 1600 watt AMERICAN LEGACY amp will power the 2 subs. They are rated at apox 400 watts each RMS peaking at800 watt.

    Im thinking about invesating in a R.F. amp, something along the lines of a 1000.2 or so. What is the rule of THUMB on how the R.F. ams are over rated? add a couple hundred? or what?

    ANy replys would be greatly appreciated.


    ANYONE IN THE BAY AREA INTERESTED in 2 R.F. 10" PUNCH SUBS In MTX individual SEALED BOXES, lemme know. 200 watts each @ 8 ohm. Becuase they are soo new, i am asking 100 for the set. Conencted to HOUSE AMP, shakes the HOUSE!

    All, or at least the ones that I have seen, are overrated. My 250x2 was rated at 362 watts and my 400x4 was rated at 589 watts. I love Fosgate amps the only problem with them is that sometimes they can overheat if you dont get one with enough power to push your subs.

    HU: Kenwood CD w/ Kenwood Chg
    FRONTS: Kenwood DB+ Excelon 2-way 6.5"
    REAR: Kenwood 3-way
    MID/HI AMP: 400x4 Fosgate Punch
    SUB: 12' Kicker VR
    SUB AMP: 250x2 Fosgate Punch
    **Soon to come... anything but those front Kenwoods, possibly Infinity Perfect Seperates

    1000.2???? dont make em, sorry. u can get the 1000.1, but it only runs 1000 watts at 2 ohms. u can also get the 800.2 which will run 800 watts at a 4ohm bridged'll beat the crap out of the legacy amp
