Hi,

I'm looking to put 2 pioneer tsw306c 12" subs in my car, each have 1000w peak power, 400w RMS. I was going to run them of an American Legacy LA660 amplifier, which is 1000w peak power. Is American Legacy a good make and Will this system work well?

Nope, tell us how much money you are looking to spend, and we will help you get the perfect system for that price, you made the right choice asking on a forum before you bought.

Also, always talk about watts in RMS, never in peak.

So how much loot are you gonna drop, so we can go to work :-)

That's a great HU, and I love pioneer for their HU's, but there are better choices for speakers and subs.

I don't really know my way around those .co.uk's or the exchange rate for that matter... hmm

Are you going for sound quality? Or SPL (loudness)?

well then from $300 to $500 it this helps any better.
im going for both sound quality and loudness.
I listen to alot of rap/hip hop music and also some trance music so i guess this involves both quality and sound.
can you recommend anything me

i have 2 10 inch american legacy subs and trust me its deffinatily worth it to spend alittle extra. i have a kicker compVR that was as much as both subs on ebay and that thing is like 4 times louder than my 2 legacys. im running 2 kicker 12's off of a SPL XL2-1600 its a 1600 watt 2 channel 2 ohm. i got it for about 160 or 170 shipped and that thing pounds a hell of alot louder than any legacy amp will

OPTI YOU GOT WRONG IN THAT CUZ HIS SUBS ARE 4 OHM svc SO THEY CAN BE WIRED AT 2 OHM AND THAT AMP WON'T PUSH THEM GOOD, BUY AUDIOBAHN 8002T. THAT WILL REALLY PUT YOUR SOUND GOOD AND WILL POUND. YOU CAN GET IT FOR 130 US$

all i know is if you used a legacy amp you could get one thats 5000 watts and they still wouldent be fully powered cuz legacy amps put out no power.
