I’m new to subs in my truck and think I have a good start. I have 2-L7S 12”, rated 750rms each. I bought a kicker 1200.1 to push them. I put them in my Tundra crew cab. I’m curious how much power they are actually getting each. Is the 1200 split and 600 each? The boxes are wired 2ohm

Yeah six but I would go with a 1500

Divide the birthsheet number by two and you'll know what each is getting. That's absolute max output, so most of the time they aren't getting close to that. I would not feed an L7 more than its rated power.

What ohm are your subs? You should get a Taramps Smart3K and wire it to one or two ohms. It will give you 3K to power those subs. Adjust your gains accordingly.

You're fine. That amp should be a decent match for those woofers.

You could double power and definitely be at a point where you'll be breaking subs only to gain, absolute best case scenario, 2 clicks on the volume knob more output.

From what I've seen with those square kickers the big weak link is always the too-small boxes everybody puts them in. I'd suggest if you feel it isn't loud enough getting a custom box designed will do more for you than just trying to throw more power at them.
