I dont have really any experience when is comes to this subject so i need some help. All i know is what brands i like and how to connect the wires, but when it comes to the spefications and what not im lost in the sauce.

I wanna purchase 1: 12" Kicker CVR Sub, but im not sure what kind of amp i need as far as ohms go. I know i need/want a mono bc its only goin to the sub nothing else. Its a 2 ohm sub with 400rms/800peak watts. What are your suggestions?

Thank you

you want to wire close to 1ohm
If you want max power get a 800 watt amp.
If not get a smaller amp

Buy Fusion stuff. they're the best out there. and wires to .25 ohms if possible. Also take your battery out up front and wire your alt straight to your amp. No resistance that way.

Phoenix gold ms1000 would power that beast just fine. It's older so it will not cost that much and very high quality. the only problem is fitting into a vehicle.

read the first page next time, there's a car audio thread. plzthx

you'll want an amp that will do 800w at 1 ohm. I assume when you say it's a 2 ohm sub you mean each coil is 2, not the parallel resistance of both of them together.

you do not want an 800 watt amp... just cus your sub says 800 max that is not talking about continuous power... if you are using this as an every day all day sub you will want to stick around 400 watts rms before you blow your sub or amp for working too hard... dont listen to some of these guys...

So you're obviously getting to 5 posts just to pm someone in the B/S/T forum.


But you joined Pbnation to try to buy a car amp from someone? This is the first place you looked for a used car amp?

If so, you should be able to find the car audio thread.
