    Two subs mono amp?

    Ok so i just sold my alpine type X for two kicker compVR's, I currently have a Power Acoustic 1600 (370rms x 2 | 740rms x 1) and i want to sell it and buy an kicker amplifier so last night my cousin told me (who previously owned 2 compVR's) and he said a guy from circuit city told him one sub = two channel amp and two subs = mono amp..i didnt think that was right but i really dont know so would i be better off buying a 1000rms x 1 kicker amp or a 400-500rms x 2 kicker amp?

    Re: Two subs mono amp?

    Well i want to match the power of the compVR's, i was thinking the Kicker 1000x1 because i can get one for $230 then just keep my settings decent. If you have an better idea im a noob so your opinion is appreciated.

    either will work, I guess I would just go with the 1000w kicker

    Re: Two subs mono amp?

    you can wire them to 4ohms or 1 ohm. You cant wire them to 2.

    Make sure your amp is stable at 1ohm.

    Sounds to me like the guy 1) isn't terribly smart, and 2) assumes there are only SVC 4 subs.

    Since a 2 channel amp can be bridged to get optimal power into a 4 ohm load, and many mono amps run optimally at 2 ohms (a pair of SVC 4's parallel) I think I see where he's going, but that is not at all a standard practice - especially considering SVC's are becoming the exception rather than the rule.
