hey guys just got two 12" l5s and a kicker kx 1200.1 for xmas..

they are DVC 4ohm. do u think i should wire them in parallel, parallel so its wired at 1ohm so i get the max power out of my amp? thats 600wattsrms to the speakers which is their rms rating. is this the best way to wire them?
suggestions and comments welcome.

yep that would work perfectly, and that amp is underrated so it puts out around 1400watts.

i heard you are spose to power them at 80-95% of their RMS rating.

will it hurt them running at 600watts rms a piece?

jus don't abuse them. when you install them turn the gain on your amp all the way down. then tun your cd player up to about 3/4 the way up. make sure you're playing a song with a lot of bass. then turn the gain up on your amp untill you hear distortion then slightly lower it.
