need some advice...i have 2 Kicker Comp 05C12
12" 4-ohm subwoofers which have a max of 300 watts and a Kenwood KAC-8152D 1 Channel D Amplifier which says it is an 1100 watt max and RMS Power: 300 Watts x 1 at 4 ohms
RMS Power: 550 Watts x 1 at 2 ohms.....are my subs in danger if i use this amp?

yeah.... you need to base your information off of RMS... RMS is more important...

your subs have a reccomended RMS of 150 Watt's. if you wire in 2 Ohm youl over drive them...i dont know much about setting up an 8 Ohm circuit... but i wouldnt do it...

if i was you i would sell em and buy a good DVC 4 ohm woofer with 600 RMS 1200 Max than you could wire your sub for 2 ohm operation... not to mention way better power.. you would be able to enjoy your beats than.

i have a kenwood amp and i am pretty satisfied with it
