    Icon6 What amp do I need?

    I have 2 Boss AR12D DVC Subwoofers: 4 ohms 2400watts/1200RMS each, and I was wondering what amp do I need.

    Re: What amp do I need?

    just looked up your subs and yes it does say 1200 rms per sub ,but,boss over inflates their specs by alot .the amp i suggest will be fine ,but i think it might be to much power ,so you'd have to be careful and set the gains perfect .because its 1500 rms and underrated ,closer to 2000 rms .run with what you have then come back for better subs ,but you will need new subs with this amp,like i said i just dont think they'll take the power of this amp for long if not set right .
