Um....well. The JBL 1200.1 is a little more flexible in that it can produce 1200W at 2 or 1ohm.
KX1200.1 just has different specs 300wx1(4ohm), 600Wx1(2ohm), and 1200Wx1(1ohm). I wouldn't say it was more "flexible" The MTX in my opinion has an advantage as it puts out more power @ less resistance. 750W(4ohm), 1500W(2ohm). Just depends on the application and what subs you get.
That's why I say Jacob....AGAIN....pick out your freakin subs FIRST!!! Then get the right amp. How do you plan on setting the subs up in you '69 El Camino?
Its called a truck bed with a cover and a hole in the back of the car with some selant for no leaking..lets just say i may not know much bout stero equipment for being 15 but i am one hell of a mechanic!
Truth is the MTX 1501d wouldn't power 4 of them properly, and for 2, it would be too much power. If you want 2, stick with the Kicker KX600.1 or JBL 600.1. If you want 4 use the JBL BP1200.1 or Kicker KX1200.1
Do not try to power 2 Shivas and 2 MTX subs off the same amp. If you want to run 2 differen't kinds of subs, you need to use 2 different amps IMO.
OK...now tell me.. what kind of amp/amps should i get to run 2 Shivas, 2 MTX subs and the MTX Trio.. I think i'm going to run a JBL BP 1200 for the 2 MTX subs and the MTX Trio but what should i use to run the shivas? something that would do the job and be cheap like in 100-200 dollas cheap mabey lil over
You're nuts dude. You want to run the Good amp to the "so-so" subs and you want a cheap amp for the Shivas. Yes I said get the subs first, then the amps, but that doesn't mean to go and make a bad decision on the amps. Why the hell do you want that many subs anyway? Maybe it's just a maturity thing, but I try to keep my ride as quite as possible on the outside.
First of all, can you tell me/us what model the MTX subs are?
OK mazda i didnt mean like a crappy amp for the shivas.. less u think i can only get a crappy one for round that price. but i want somethin that can push em good..According to you guyz it dont take much to push em thats why i didnt think of anything high for an amp with em..
Yeah, you can see what they suggest, and then buy it off the net cheaper! LOL. I think that's fun. See what these places suggest and then buy it cheaper MWUUUUUHAAAAHAAAHAAAHAAAHAAAAA. Damn I'd hate to be a salesmen.....wait, sometimes I am.
The "yea then have them install it since i know absolutely NOTHING about it" is bout the buying speakers and amps off the net..
dont you just love it when to guys at the audioshop dont have a clue about the stuff they sell!
some of them at a shop near where i live just love sony, boss, and audiobahn.....hey think audiobahn puts JL to shame! also they no one round here even knows Adire, RE, DD, and MMats even exist! its like a few of my friends and me are the only people within 200 miles that these companies even exist!!!
