    Is 1000w rms overkill

    ok i have two dual 4 ohm subs at 450 rms each I was looking at the soundstream rubicon 1000d.I was just wondering if I wire them down to 1ohm will the amp be overkill for the subs or will it be just perfect?for both subs its 900 rms. I curretly have a kicker zx400.1 amp wired down to 1-ohm but it keeps cutting off. and I have my gains set to 20v ac, so im pretty sure its that the amp is underpowerd.Thanks.

    Re: Is 1000w rms overkill

    I was planning on setting the gains fairly low.I read somewhere on here that its good to have an amp a little stronger than your subs.With the gains set at the right level.I might be wrong.

    Re: Is 1000w rms overkill

    Dont set them that low cuz then you wont be getting near enough power... Id bet your deck only has 2 volt preouts as well...

    That amp is fine if your box is not large and your electrical can handle it. Stop wiring the ZX to 1ohm before you fry it

    ok not trying to be a **** here but im going to :p
    i can put 2k to a 1k sub all day in the proper box and good control of settings.
    and on underpowering. what happens when you turn your volume down? as long as the signal is not clipped its fine
