That 1200 watt amp won’t be able to push even 1 ZVX. You’ll need a strong 3k amp and a good AGM battery. The capacitor isn’t helping at all. A better enclosure is probably something to look at in the future also. I just finished a box for 2 ZVX 12s a few weeks ago. They are pretty damn loud if you get them in a good install.

Is that a sealed enclosure? Or Ported? What are the specs on the enclosure? As stated.. you need some power for those subs to serve any justice and a well tuned enclosure

So when I turn it up past certain volume or I get to certain low baselines it goes into protect mode I get the clipping I was thinking that maybe I was smothering the subwoofer with too small of an enclosure if it's clipping am I draining that 1200.1 completely or do I have another issue

That sounds like a voltage drop issue. Enclosure is another possible issue but the enclosure won’t cause clipping.
