Option 1 - Rockford t2500bdcp at 2 ohm.
Option 2 - buy the right subs
Only option. Don't run amps at .5 ohm

Why not get 2 1000 watt amps and strap them at 2 ohms?

Especially with 4 gauge... If you buy an amp that will actually do 2k at 2 ohms it will def. need 0 gauge

2 AQ 750s could do this for $400 I think. Forget what they cost.

you serioisly dont need to use 4awg for speaker wire... seriously, 8awg is plenty enough overkill.

Did you say your using 4 gauge wire on your subs or to the amp? If its your subs thats way overkill. Plus Im sure you had to cut the strands just to get it to fit and the size it is at the connection point now on the sub is probably more like 10 gauge if that. Just use some 10gauge wire to the subs and as for the amp,I would probably use the RF t2500bdcp since it will give you the 2000 you need at 2 ohms without putting a strain on your electrical. Thats your best option in my opinio

I don't really understand your setup. Start with the basics. Alt, battery, what wire from alt to batt, batt to amp, speaker wire for the subs, 12g would be more then enough. Fuse inside your box? Not sure what you mean there.

I think what he's saying is he's got 4AWG from the subs to the terminal on the inside of his box, then has 8AWG from the terminal on the outside of his box to amp location. 4AWG is overkill.

Only amps I've seen that PUBLICLY advertise .5 ohm stable are the Lanzar Opti series and the MA Audio HK series. Crescendo does display it does .5 ohms on good electrical (I have a PDF birthsheet emailed to me by Crescendo). I've heard many people claim AQ can do so as well.

Really though, yo're better off trying to work with 2 ohms for stability issues. Just my .02
