I whould get a nine 1 and run it at 900 x 1 @ 2 ohm

That whould be your best bet. You could use that amp down to 1 ohm for later use. $350 shipped / great deal

i was thinkin the nine.1 but its on back order so thats a big thing, i think i might just go for one of the ones u said in ur first post, think that'll push it hard enough, because i plan on getting another arsenal and a HO alt in like 5-6 months

In that case, go with the JL 1000/1

Arsenal's are dual 4 ohm voice coil subs which means if you have 2 of them, then your only options are to wire them in series to get a 4 ohm final impedence or down to 1 ohm

The JL 1000/1 can run either 1 of the Arsenals or 2 of them when you get both.

The Orion 1200D puts out 1200 watts rms @ 1 ohm which works well if you have two Arsenals

The Kicker KX1200.1 does 1200 watts rms @ 2 ohm which can only run 1 Arsenal and not 2.

The JL 1000/1 is good from 1.5-4 ohms and is more flexible and built alot better then all the amps mentioned and whould be your best choice if you have the money.

IF not then i whould settle with the Orion 1200D or ED NINE 1

"The Kicker KX1200.1 does 1200 watts rms @ 2 ohm which can only run 1 Arsenal and not 2."

Um the kx1200.1 is 1ohm stable, the new zx1000.1 is only 2ohm stable, me personally would go with the kicker, but any of the amps MO mentioned would work.

IF the KX1200.1 is 1 ohm stable then it is a good choice aswell. I whould get the Orion 1200D or KX1200.1 or ED NINE 1

Either way it will get the job done.

you keep asking the same questions man. You need a 1200D if your going to power 2 of them. If your only going to power 1 then just get a Kicker KX600.1 or somthing.

The Arsenal is dual 4 ohm which means you can only wire it into 2 ohm or 8 ohm.

That kicker kx600.1 puts out 600 rms @ 2 ohm. Just check it.
