    Icon14 new build. need help

    I have 2 soundqubed hds210d4. They have two inputs on the subs. i don't know how to wire that up. I also need to know what kind of amp I should buy. I don't have much budget about 150. I was looking at a planet audio 4000 watt mono or a cadence 2400 watt. I know that's peak power the RMS on the planet audio at 4 ohm was 1100 I believe. The cadence is 600 at 4 ohm. The subs are 600 RMS 1200 max. Do I need a mono amp or a 2 channel or what? I'm new to audio so all help is appreciated.

    The subs have 2 inputs because they're dual 4 ohm voice coil configuration. Easiest and most common way to run these in what they call parallel and end up with a 1 ohm load at the amp. Like this: Rockford Fosgate® - Woofer WiringWizard The amplifier you get should be to do at least 1200 rms watts @ 1 ohm. This one made by SQ: Q1-1200D Amplifier is the one that matches the subs and they're very solid amplifiers. Also, don't pay attention to peak power on the amplifiers. It doesn't mean anything. And the Planet Audio and the Cadence are both bad choices in my opinion. Do you have an enclosure yet for the subs?

    Yea you have dual voic coils so you should wire them to a 1-ohm compatible amp and to do that just search wiring guide for dvc 4 ohm subs, and as for a cheap yet good amp I would buy a hifonics d class monoblock somewhere around 1200 watts, I've owned two so far and I have loved both of them! Don't buy cadence or planted audio not to good of stuff from what I've heard.
