as of right now i have a cheep Kenwood head unit and a pair of XXX 12" 1200 watt subs, after a little research i found that the XXX amp that came with them is a single channel 1200 watt amp. so knowing this i am assuming that each sub is only getting 600 watts each, so i need some help finding a single amp that will put out two channels at 1200 watts, it needs to be one amp because i don't have much space in my trunk. i don't care about brand or anything it just needs to be 4 ohms & 1200 watts per channel help would be appreciated.

my budget is truly as cheep as possible, the reason i am asking you guys is because i don't know any good car audio websites, i am essentially looking for a site for car audio that is like Newegg for computers.

admins if this is the wrong place feel free to move it to the proper area.

I assume you have these?
If so, that is 1200watts PEAK that those speakers can handle, meaning they are already getting enough power as it is, if those numbers are accurate. And for the $$$, those must be junk man. Why do you think you need more power? Are they not loud enough? lol

I always tell my friends to just get a good quality single 10" or 12" sub in a single sealed enclosure, no bandpass boxes or anything like that. Those, at least to me, sound the best and hit more than hard enough.

that is my peace of S**t, yea they where my first subs on my first custom stereo build, they where cheep and i liked the red...

looking back now i know i am an idiot but the reason i went with two 12" subs is because the car they are in is a convertible and as soon as you put that top down there goes all your bass.

and to answer your other question, no they are not loud enough. if you listen to them when running one of those ridiculous bass test songs you can hear them just drop out, the volume will increase to a point and then they just stop, i know there is a lot more these subs can do that is why i assumed it was the amp.

this was my first install so any advice is welcome
