bump...
lol, no.
how can you find out how many amps they draw
By using an amprobe. Clamp it on and it will tell you how many amps you are pulling. Or you could do Watts x Volts = Amps, but it will be a little higher than that based on how efficient your amp is.
2 Livewire 12"s
Custom box 4.0 cubes at 32 HZ
MB Quart RAA2400 800 Watts
Polk Audio 3 ways in rear and doors
Pioneer DEH-P4000UB w/ 4gb flash drive
A good start is by determining current draw based on power output and efficiency.
