ok i've been stuck on finding the right amp for my sub. the jl w7 12... after alot of talkin with my audio guy he said to do the 500/1 jl. i'm just wondering if anyone has this set up and if its gonna be enough. i have a 2 door tahoe. and recently had two kicker l7 12's and xtant 1000.1 amp stolen. so is it gonna do the job?
you will gain about 3db's by going with the 1000/1 over the 500/1.
3db's is a good amount although it may not sound l;ike much it is highly noticable.
i have never had a 12 w7 distort..? i have two in my 94 toyota pickup and it was ran by one pcx 2400 amp. before it was only pushin one w7and it was bridged to push 1600 and there was no distortion what so ever, but for the guy above asking for advise, id go with the 1000/1. and set everything right and put the speaker facing the rear about 20-24inches from the back door since you have so much air to be pushed, it will sound better in a Subzone box.will produce lots of bass of any other box i have heard!
