I blew a sub so I went and got 2 more. I got 2 Xtant 1244 in a ported box for $150. I am goin to run the with the BX1500d, 1500 watts at 1 ohm. Is that too much for these?

Also, what size speaker wire should I have wiring these together and 2 the amp? Does it matter?

what's the rms of those subs cause that amp is overrated and you wont see 1500wrms.

Yeah those subs are 500 wrms. That amp is going to be a little overrated, so you should be just fine. As for the speaker wire I would go with some 12 gauge, even 14 gauge will be fine. I run my sub on 10 gauge but that is just me and it is probably just overkill. Those are nice subs btw. :-)
