you could do 700-800rms for each and be fine. mabye even 1000. the older models arerated at 500rms and 1500 peak i think. newer are a little higher.

I'm running mine on a kicker kx1200.1, so they are both taking 600 @ 1ohm... the rating on the kicker went up to 1450, so you could easily do around 700.

Unless my math sucks I hope I'm right.

jay, don't buy vibe 286 cuz you will get 1000w rms, that's not a recommended model from lanzar, better go with optidrive 1400d
