Okay, im ordering my power acoustik amp only question is this
if i run these @ 2ohms a piece for a combined wattage of 280rms x2 channels...will this put a lot of stress on the amplifier.
The amp is 2 ohms stereo stable...but i mean will this like ruin the amp quicker or does 20hms stereo mean that its built for that??

it means it was built for that. You could run it lower, and that would cause stress, but if it says its 2ohm stable, it will run fine.

dude dont order that amp! 280x2 is more like 100x2 if that! give us your budget and we will find you a better amp.

try to find an older jbl bp600.1 u should be able to get it for under 200 on ebay since i just bought a jbl 1200.1 for 228. the 600 is rated for 600watts rms at 2 ohms and 1 ohm but i can tell u from personnal experience it is closer to 800 possibly more seeing how it pulled 80 amps with a true rms meter stuck on the power and gnd terminals at the amp and was getting 13.7 volts. lets see here 80*13.7=1096 :-). cant tell u about the 1200 yet but it will im hoping it works just as well as the 600 did to push my 2 avalanche 15s. thats why i ran 2 gauge to the amp and am gonna order a 170 amp alternator :-)
