If they are the old type R's, the amp's Sub said will work perfect. If they are the new type R's, you'll need a little bigger amp than that.:-)

lol thanks for the suggestions. those subs are dual 2 ohm each. if he got a 2 channel amp, he would wire each sub parralel to amp to have a 1 + 1 ohm to equal a 2 ohm load tight? would the amp have to be 1 ohm stable?

the amp, Hifonics ZX6000 Zeus Series
2 X 150 Watts RMS into 4 Ohms
2 X 300 Watts RMS into 2 Ohms
1 X 600 Watts RMS into 4 Ohms

would that work? or does it have to say 1 ohm stable or sumthin lol

I'd run the voice coils in series for 2 4 ohm subs then run the subs in parallel for a 2 ohm load. Running subs in series isn't as desirable and yes, if you plan on utilizing a 2 channel amp its going to need to be stable into 1 ohm stereo(2 ohms bridged). It may be tough to find one of those, so you'd probably be better off with a monoblock.

If he doesn't mind purchasing off E-bay this would work:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=64573%26item%3D5763733525 %26%26

Don't be fooled by the price. Thats a great amp. Its just a discontinued item and may go for a lot higher than that.

Here's the specs for the A6001:

Same amp, different color.

Don't limit yourself to what we recommend however. There's plenty of other good choices out there.

No, you would need a different amp. From what you posted, that amp can't handle a 1 ohm load. You could wire them in series, but you won't get near the power you wher looking for.

If he has two dual 2 ohm voice coil subs he only needs a 2 ohm stable monoblock.

Those subs can be wired to provide either a 1/2, 2, or 8 ohm load.

Lol, yeah. If you can't get those links to work try copy/pasting them to your address line.

:-)

I know this is confusing, but basically, if I've got the info on those subs correct, you need either a monoblock that provides its best power into a 2 ohm load or a 2 channel that does its best at 1 ohm stereo(2 ohm bridged).

ok lol thanks a bunch, i know audiobahn isnt a top of the line brand, but what do u think of

A1801T - Audiobahn 1 Ch. 800 Watt Amplifier
800 x 1 at 2 Ohms Mono
.. so if thats wired to a 2 ohm load, each sub gets 400 watts. do u think that is pushin it for the sub which says 100-300 watts, 1000 watts peak?

hahhahha fishy god i love ya lol, but uh i wouldnt push it lol but you would wiere the subs together to get a 1 ohm load together not a 2 ohm load and then the power would be split even, as it would be with mine as well lol

Nah audiobahn may be alright, but Xtant makes a much better product IMO. Check out Glasswolf's "Good, Bad, and Ugly list":

http://www.caraudiocentral.net/forums/showthread.php?t=32

400 watts should be ok as long as you don't go crazy with the gains and push those subs into clipping, but depending on the enclosure even 200-250 watts ea might be enough to push those subs to full excursion.

You can't wire those two subs together for a 1 ohm mono load unless you only use one voice coil.

A dual 2 ohm sub can be be wired either as a 1 or 4 ohm driver. 2 of these in parallel gives you either a 1/2 or 2 ohm load and wiring them in series(not recommended) results in either a 2 or 8 ohm load.

I know - very confusing.
