I just bought 2 12" Kicker CVR's and they hit good but I need a better amp, right now the shitty amp I have now is only 250 rms... the subs run 400 rms each or so... how big of an amp do I really need and how cheap can I get it? any ideas?
Correct, they are dual 2 ohm.. I hope I don't blow them running them on an amp with half the power. I like the Kicker ZX750, looks like quality to me.. i'll make some calls today to see what stores have what and how fast I can get it
I have these exact same subs and yeah they can take 800 rms but I'm pumping 400rms at 2 ohms into these and it pounds hard, of course with a better amp rated at like 750 or 800 it will pound harder but my rockford power 500-1bd amp gives these enough man.
Is it a t1500-1bd amp? If so yeah that supplies more than enough power thats 1000 watts at 2 ohms 1500 at 1 ohm plenty of power, the max power that these subs can take is 1600 the t1500 can pump out max 3000 at 1 ohm and 2000w at 2 ohms so it would do those subs wonders!
i've never heard of kevins amp.. I would have to ask around and see if anyone has used it. looks like the rest of the crap amps that get sold on ebay. I don't want to buy some cheap amp that's going to burn out and i'm going to pay twice as much as I would have paid for a real amp.
dont listen to the rest of these guys, that memphis is good. you will either run your subs at .5 ohm, 2 ohm or 8 ohm and 2 ohm is most practical. you also dont need to put the exact RMS power rating to them, theyll be fine with a little less power.
also, underrated amps dont mean they are better amps. it just means the manufacturer rated them below what they can put out for whatever reason.
kevin what brand amplifier is that? digital designs?
