Hello I'm purchasing two Pride Sv3 15 inch subwoofers but I'm not sure which impedance option to pick and what amplifier to look for to match the subs. I can either pick a dual 0,75 ohm per sub or a dual 1,6 ohm per sub and together the rms rating on is a 8000 watts total. So for each impedance option which amplifier should I be looking for?

Not trying to be an #$$hole here but if your playing with equipment like that you should understand what to get and how to properly set it up.

Something like this needs to have an amp that is capable of making enough power into whatever impedance you choose, the vehicle deadened all to hell and since your going to obviously get a rather large amp the electrical will definitely need some upgrades as well if not already done.

I appreciate it and I have been doing extensive research for the car audio build I'm going for it's just I wasn't sure which amp to choose for these subs. I also appreciate the box design. I'm currently working with a 2004 trailblazer in terms of space and I am also working on installing the front stage with a pair of deafbonce arnold's and a pair of super tweeters

I'll tell you 1st off that's not a design for a Trailblazer unless they widened the vehicle since I saw one last. That one pictured is for a Tahoe and only the main rendering not the design.
A design usually has multiple cutsheets along with mechanical drawings to work off of. I believe that one was like 7-8 pages long.

I'd look for an amp that does rated power into whatever load you wire to. I personally like to wire down so a massive amp is not needed to beat rise but either way your going to end up with a big amp to power those right and do them justice.

The guy that design was for ended up with a MD12K, 80ah of lithium and 2 alternators and now he wants to add more power... it never ends...
