How many subs do you plan on using? I just checked the specs on Best Buy's website and the sub is rated for 150w RMS (don't bother looking at peak power). Also, depending on the # of subs you are using it will affect how they are wired (series/ parallel), which in turn affects what amp you'll need.04 ECSB Custom silver & grey, Soft 8's, BFG KO's, ReadyLift Leveling Kit, Hellwig front sway bar, K&N filter, DeeZee EZ-Down, Rhino liner, Alpine CDE103BT, Rockford 6.5's, 12" V.A.T.

I like Rockford Fosgate, but Kicker is an excellent brand as well ! Check out crutchfield.com or some online reailters they usually offer competivie pricing and a bigger inventory to chose from. I'm running a 2 channel 400 rms (bridged) pushing two tens.

Kicker is definitely a good idea. I am running a single 12" L5 and a 1200 watt mono amp. Sounds pretty good!Jess

Kicker over rates their amps. The 750 only puts out about 300 RMS at 12 volts.. They like to rate the amps at 14 volts. Your truck will not put that much volts into that amp...08 Z71 Avalanche Mods to date: K&N CAI,Hellwig Swaybars and End Links, Corsa Sport Exhaust, Superchips Programer,IPCW LOF & 3rd brake light and tails, AMI Gas door,Show Hooks and Door locks, Enkei Wheels, with Pirelli tires, StreetScene Bowties, Grant Steering wheel,Muth signal mirrors,SSBC Big Brake kit,Huskyliner Mug gards,Floor mats and Hood shield, McGard Lug nuts and locks, Bedrug, Cervini's Ram Air hood,35watt HID Fog lights, Sylvania bulbs all around ZXE's Highs and Lows, WhiteNight Back up lights,Sirius and HD Radio, SnugTop sitting on deck now Got a Softopper on now,Tempress Boat Hatches....

I wouldn't go with a Kicker amp. If you're going to spend the money, the amp will likely outlast the subs. Therefore, you'll want to buy a good quality amp (I recommend JL Audio) which will be enough power if you decide to upgrade your subs.2010 Dodge Charger R/T | Tint, aFe CAI, Flowmasters w/ reso del
