    Re: amp help

    WTF is a CV 15? Do you mean Kicker CVR 15"? If so, you're going to get another dual 2 ohm and your final amp load will be 2 ohm (or 0.5 ohm) but I wouldn't do that daily). So the amps you're going to be looking at should do around 1000 rms @ 2 ohms. If what I'm assuming is correct.....

    Not cheap to find a 1,000 watts @ 2 ohm

    1,000 @ 1 ohm is super cheap like this Audiopipe APSM 1300

    Re: amp help

    Ok would that 1 1000w amp @ 2 ohm be enough for two of my subs to run at 500 rms each? Or is it 1 amp per sub? Also what brands are true 1000w?

    Re: amp help

    if you have 2 subs you need 2x the power.

    1000 watts amp for 2 subs = 500 watts per sub

    Kenwood is not great, look at the MB Quart Discuss series

    pinoy2o9 has some arc audio ks1000.1 for sale, they are class h amps. that amp is 1000wrms @ 2ohms, depends on your budget. he's selling them at 300, worth more.
