I need some opinions on this set up i am thinking about getting.

2 10" Alpine SWR-1042D
-power handling: 200-500 watts RMS
-peak power: 1,500 watts

Kenwood KAC-9152D 1800w Class-D Mono Amp
-Max Power: 1800 watts
-RMS 500 watts (4 Ohms, Less than 1% THD+N)
-Rms 900 watts (2 Ohms, Less than 1% THD+N)
-RMS 900 watts (1 Ohm, 100Hz, 1% THD at 14.4V)

I plan on running them parallel at 2 ohms. What do you think?
Also Ported or Sealed box? I am leaning more towards ported.

get a bigger amp. i have the 12" type r's and trust me, they can handle more. try to get an amp that will give them each about 550-650wrms.

2 dvc4ohm subs can only be wired to 1ohm or 4ohm. and whats your price range for a amp, im sure some1 on here can find something better.
