    Default Just got 2 10" kicker L5's.....what amp?

    I know kicker recommends the Zx750.1 amp, but I was wondering if anyone is running these subs with a different amp that may not be as costly?

    Man go ahead and get a good amp. you dont want the cheap stuff. I have two 12s on a 600 watt, and now i want more, so go big, or you will wind up wantin a bigger amp.

    You don't Need the kicker amp, you could go with another amp that puts out the correct rms watts at the correct ohm rating. As long as it's a good quality amp from a good quality brand you should be just fine. How much have you found the kicker amp for?

    Is that on eBay? What ohms are the subs?

    Try checking out audioque. I've heard nothing but good things about their products and customer service. Their lowest amp is 249 and it's perfect for those subs. You'll get a warranty Also when you buy the amp.

    they're 2 ohm. The 220 is on ebay & hifisoundconnection. A lot of people hate hifisoundconnection, but they have some pretty low prices. Ill check out audioque tho!

    I would get the audioque. I think it's the 1200D.

    You can get it directly from the manufacture at www.audioque.com
