I picked up 2 12" JVC Warren G Subwoofers CS-WG1200, and Kenwood KAC-8101D Amp. I'm basically wondering what would be the best way to wire this up to get the best sound possible. Also would like to know if this is a good setup. Here are the specs of the stuff I got.

Maximum Output Power: 1000 Watts
RMS Power Output at 2 Ohms: at 14.4V (100Hz, 0.5% THD): 400 Watts x 1
RMS Power Output at 4 Ohms,:at 14.4V (20Hz 200Hz, 0.5% THD): 200 Watts x 1
Selectable Infrasonic Filter: Off/15/25Hz, 18dB per Octave
Variable Low Pass Electronic Crossover: 50Hz-200Hz, 18dB per Octave
Bass Boost: Off/+12dB (90Hz)
Secondary Capacitors: 2 Large
MonoBlock Class D Operation
2-Ohm Stable

12" Subwoofer
1000 Watts Maximum Music Power
Glass Fiber Cone with Rubber Surround
Aluminum Die Cast Basket
Aluminum / El Wire 4-layer (Dual Voice Coil)
Rubberized PVC Gasket
Black Polycotton Spider Damper
Nickel Plated Screw Terminals
Frequency response: 20 - 1,500 Hz
Impedance: Dual 4 Ohm
Mounting Hole: 11.22"
Mounting depth: 5.2"

Any help would be great. Thanks

well thos subs do not match up to that amp very well, it needs to be ran at 4ohm only, it is not stable for 1ohm and will burn the amp up, , if so you prob wont even see 200 to them.
