i need help choosing what amps to use in my set up in my 98 jeep grand cherokee(4 or 6 type r 12" duel 4ohm subs)if i have room but at least 4. i own 7 of these subs, had 10 but blew 1 and sold 2.the amps that i have are all old school kicker amps (3 xs50s 3 zr600s 2 zr1000s)for subs.
Just realized the zr1000 puts out 1000+watts at 2ohms(correct me if Im wrong) You wont be able to give the 4 subs enough power since they wire to 1 and 4 ohms. You will need different amps if you want to do that.
i really don't care for the kicker amps. but if u want to run 6 type r's u will need 3k rms and sounds like u don't have an ho alt so u need one!!!! even if u run 4 type r's u need 2k rms u still need an ho alt. try http://mechman.com/
and amp's look for something better try sundown audio 3000D RD audio 3250.1 atomic 3000.1 theres more
i already own these amps and these subs. i get good deals on them because the kicker factory is here in oklahoma, if i burn them up i just take em back ind they get fixed for $60 or less most of the time the most it has cost me was $115 to get a whole new circut board. i know there is way better amps out there but thats what im working with at the moment and the zr xs and zx460 were made in the U.S. before they sold out
whould it be better to run 2 12"s with a zr1000 on each. birth sheets one the amps say 1 is 1375 and the other is 1360. im going to build my own box, whats the best box for sql more sq than loud. i need some dimensions cause im not sure on how to figure out how long to make the vent. the jeep will hold up to 42" wide 30" deep and 20" high. i think 4 12"s is the most that i can fit.
well i hooked up a single 12" type r in my chevy cobalt in a seald box (the box leaks though)just for testing, to 1 of my zr1000s and its way too much for a single sub(ran in 2ohms mono).would a vented box allow the sub to handle more power
they are hard to sell around here unless they are hooked up in a car. thats why im wanting to put some in my jeep.i want to sell the 12"s too so i can get some 15"s. i like the type r subs, is there some other subs out there that sre in the same price range that will out perform the type r's
