why dont you jus try to find a .5 ohm stable amp, if you want try lookin here cardiscountstereos.com go to amps and then mono block amps and you should be able to find one :cool:

you know you could wire them to a 2 ohm mono load and get an amp that puts out good power at 2ohms mono. whats the rms on those subs? i know the 12" type x's are like 1000rms but whats the 10's rated at?

since both subs are dual 2ohm, wire each sub in series then parellel the pair together. that give you a 2ohm load. as far as amps, thats really up to you, if it was me i'd just get a good amp that puts out power at 2ohms like a memphis 2000d. which puts out like 2400watts give or take a couple hundred. you could get 2 1000d's and run one to each but it might have more of a current draw then runnin one amp( not too sure on that)

i dont trust the ma audio i had bought the 4400 and it burned up on me twice i had to keep paying the shipping bill to send it to get fixed and they require up to 17 volts to get maximum potential an i correct i heard some good things about them but had some bad experiences with them and about the same time mines burned up this other guys in my town did to it was pushing them really hard though

so im gotta look for something that pushes more out at 2 ohms what if i get 2 one ohm stable amps i was thinking about 2 cadence 750 watt amps thru audiosavings in ebay i dont know how to send links but i have a fosgate p600.1 and i have it wired down to 1 ohm on each channel been running it like that for a year now all the way up never shuts off i dont know how much im pushing to them cuzz in the manual it says 300x2 at 2ohms nothing about it being 1 ohm stable but it is doing a hell of a job sounds good but i know they can sound better and i dont want to get something that will sound any less and thanks for your help if you can give me info back on the cadence amps i would really appreciate thanks

thats a clean grand prix homie. you could run 2 of those amps just as long as your electrical system is capable. the only thing is that they might not push your type x's as hard as they could but it should sound good none the less.

do you think those cadence amps will push more than my p600.1 fosgate though it pushes 300x2 at 2 ohms and i got them running at 1 ohm on each channel i dont want to buy something thats gonna sound less than what i have now have you heard anything about cadence amps and i got a yellow top under the hood with a extra battery in the trunk it drops to about 12.5 when up high but its alot better than running one battery and on top of that im getting some new rides keeping the system and everything that goes with it im trading my 79 for a 96 caprice on 22s gonna put 13s on it goona get rid of the big rims and bag it looking for something new i havent been showing it much love lately it just sits poor baby hopefully the next person will but thanks homie for showing some love and getting back everytime

never really heard anything on cadence stuff. as far as the difference between them and your fosgate, they'll make a difference just not sure how big of one but i'd bet that they'll be louder. when you get that other car do the big 3 upgrade and look into a high output alternator. you can find them on ebay for a decent price. that should help make things even louder. maybe even new batteries like powermaster or kinetik. they're a little pricey but in my opinion better than an optima. just get 2 identical one so theres no problems. i'm just waiting to get to work on my 85 2 dr. shits been sittin for a few years, and i'm gettin anxious to get it rollin.
