So I know some of you are tired of seeing me post a bunch of crap, but bear with my noobiness for just a little bit longer. So my Boss PH3000D is blown and I'm now tasked with finding another amp. I seriously don't want to fk up my next purchase so I'm back here asking more questions. Ok so down to the reason I'm here. I have 2 12 Rockford Fosgate P3d4 @ 600rms each and I've noticed something while looking at amps. All the amps have a rating such as
1200w rms @ 1 ohm
900w rms @ 2 ohms
600w rms @ 4 ohms
In the past I was trying to find an amp that does 1200w rms at 4 ohms but those amps run at $800-$1500 which is stupid expensive. Whenever I first started looking into a system I read that running your setup at 1 ohm generates a lot of heat thus shortening the life of the amp/subs which is why I was trying to find 1200w rms @ 4 ohms. Can someone enlighten me on what I'm missing? Would it hurt anything if I bought one of those amps that does 1200w rms @ 1 ohm?
