I am buying 2 12 inch level 3s and i dont know where to start to look for a amp, i know that DC's subs can handle over the rms all day and i would like to run more then the 900watt rms but i cant tell if a amp is good. for example i know if it says 3000 watts but it doesnt say rms that its not really 3000 watts, but im looking for a good amp that is going to let me get the best out of my subs.

down rpping vanderbilt. 30 miles from victoria. i own the 3rd loudest setup here out of 3. but i did put together all 3 setups

strapping 2 amps together ? like bolting them next together? using bungy cables to hold them down? or wiring separate amps to each sub

If you don´t know if them are doin rated, look at the fusing rule by thump 100 amp of fusing = 1 K watt RMS.

I guess you a SoundQubed (before AQ) 2200 or a Crescendo 2 K, or the said DC 2 K.

You are talking about 2 of them right? A 2k would not even be as much as they could take. But would be just fine.

oh. so when a amp says 2000x1 does that mean it you hook up 2 subs to it, one in each channel they will get 1000 watts each or 2000 watts each?

If it says x2, it's a 2 channel, if its say x1, then it's a monoblock, you usually want a monoblock for your subs.

What's your budget?
