don't know who told you that but i had kx1200.1 pushing my type r's and it hit. i'd buy that amp if it's in your budget, but if not buy a mono amp that's around 1100-1400wrms @ 1ohm. you want to at least give those subs 550wrms each, and definately go ported.



other good ones: pg xenon 1200, jbl 1200.1.

the Kicker KX1200.1 is a very nice amp, whoever said it won't sound good, what did they compare it to??

Phoenix Gold Xenon is another nice amp to consider.
you could also look at the Orion 1200D.

i don't know if i'd buy that amp from that seller. they haven't sold a lot, mostly buys.

the new ZX1000.1 goes for around $370+S&H. not many KX1200.1's left online, mostly used ones from individuals.
