If i was to get 4, 4000 watt peak subs, 2000 watts rms, would 4 2000 watt amplifiers, one amp for each sub, would the amps be able to handle the subs or could i cut down on the amps....the amps are Lanzar VIBE268's...and the subs are
JBL GTi Series W12GTi 12 inches...thanks and please leave responses with your help

those subs peobably dont need 2000 watts going to them. just get to 2000 watt amps and you should be fine

th only thing i dont know about is i got a new 2004 BMW M3, and i dont know if the trunk will be able to fit all 4 subs, and i would have to buy a plexiglass sub box, and if i got up to 8000 watts it would blow my windows out so i will most likley have to buy new plexiglass windows, but do u think i should just buy the 4 subs with an amp each or buy the 4 subs and try it with 2 or 3 amps

YES, ALWAYS, go with the biggest and baddest amp you can afford and then only run them at a percentage of max, this is the best way to minimalize your distortion and ensure that you are getting true rms power.

a 2000 watt amp is maybe 500 rms, run at 25% power is 125 watts per channel clean amazing sound

a 125watt per channel rms amp run at full gain will not sound as good

Assuming that both amps are the same company and model line.

Well, the Lanzar amps are over rated. They probably don't put out half what they say they can. Besides if you do have 4 true 2000 rms amps you would need a few batteries and a couple of alts. That is alot of power to supply.
