I think they are 1000 watts rms? I don't know an amp that big that is good! But a 1500 watt amp should fine! If you want to stick with Rockford get the t1501 If that is to much money... try Mtx 1501D Hifonics 1500
I said an 1800 watt amp, so each sub would get 900 watt's. Perfect for the hx2's! I think 500 watt's would be underpowering them just a little, just my appinion, think you would be happyer with more power! I have the punch Hx2's, got mine befor the power's came out. Wish I would of wated:-)
Do you have any idea how much power 500W rms is? A perfectly tuned sub with 200W rms is enough to be hard a block away. I don't know how you guys can stand 1000W rms. You either have a poor box/sub or a very tightly sealed trunk.
I am back to starting over because someone liked my power stage 2 sub 12 inch and the RF T10001b more than I did and helped themselves to it. Don't that bring a tear to your eye, I know it did mine. But anyway now I have 2 MTX RT-10's in a box I made and tuned to 36hz and just 100 watts you can hear me a good 800 yards.
First of all, you need a great sub, then a perfect box for it. Now you need a high quality amp that puts out pure 200W rms. You can discard most of the cheap amps. You'd be suprised how much difference a great amp makes compared to a normal/cheap ones. Logic says bass is bass, but not quite. A real amp will produce a FULL bass note without tailing/fading out. Same thing applies for the highs. Try listening to a high quality amp. You won't go back.
As for Donald, I feel for you. I hate thieves. They should all be shot. You may not believe it, but every dog has it's day.
As far as a good amp, I am using the Rockford p8002. My sub's aren't the gratest, and I am looking to upgrade as I type lol My subs are the punch hx2's, and the boxes wher built at a shop, so I hope they are built right!
RF P8002 is not a bad amp. That amp at FutureShop/Best Buy is $899. The biggest rip off ever. I've seen a demo of it, not bad for getting "soft" bass. RF's better amps are the "T" series. They cost a bit more but if you like their brand, try that. Orion HCCA is one master piece. I received mine yesterday and boy it is everything as advertised. It is too bad that they stopped making amps that great.
