what kinda amp?
after all i ended up getting to 12" kicker cvt shallow mount subs. there single voice coil and 4 ohm. but im kinda confused on what amp i should get, a mono or 2 channel?
on the amp how it says 2 ohm, will it be runnin at 2 ohms? cause if soo it'll be too much
now on this one there all at 4 ohms, with is what i want. cause i had a 1800 watt kenwood mono block in mind, at 4 ohms ill be pushin like 500 watts, my speakers can handle 400, so i'd have to turn it down. is that the right amp or should i go with a 2 channel? if so got one in mind? need help soon trying to get amp by thursday!

I would go with the kenwood amp not the power acoustik, it would be fine to run the subs at 2 ohm mono u won't hurt them as long as u properly set the gains and lpf etc........after all under powering speakers is the most common way to blow them not over powering"Assumptions are the mother of all F***-ups.

so if i ran them at 2 ohm i would have to turn the amp down a lot right? cause at 4 ohms the amp puts out 500 watts at 4 ohms and 900 watts at 2 ohms

My money goes to alpine for amps, i have one 600W V12 that I have been running my subs for 14 years now, I would like to if anyone still even has one in their house that doesnt run from that long ago let alone having one that has been pushing subs flawlessly for that many years, hell most people dont even own cars that old!99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"
