  1. Greetings, I have 2 Kenwood 12" 4ohm DVC performance series woofers (KFC-W12DVC) rated for 250watts/1000max. I can wire them for either 4ohm or 1ohm. I'm shopping for a good amp to power the pair and my question is; should I be looking for an amp to push 500 watts at 4ohm or 1ohm? Does it make a difference as long as it delivers 500w RMS at the correct impedance for how I wire the drivers? Also where the max power for the woofers is 1000, does that stay there, or can I get an amp that will push 1500 to 2000 max? Someone also mentioned getting a 2 channel amp and running it with each woofer at 2ohms but I don't know about that because aren't 2 channel amplifiers full frequency? I'm looking for Class D monoblock subwoofer amps because that's all it will be for and they stick within subwoofer frequency range. Any input is greatly helpful and appreciated. Just in case anyone is wondering, because I have been asked a couple of times, the reason I have 2 dual voice coil 4ohm subwoofers is because I didn't know the difference when I bought the first one, I just thought 2 voice coils would be better than one and that 4ohms was very stable. That driver is awesome, it's taken all the poundings I have thrown at it for well over 2 years. I listen to a wide variety of bass heavy music genres from speed metal to downtempo coffee house trance and anything and everything between. If it's got bass, bpm, and soul, it's on. The little 250.1 DX series Kicker has overheated a few times trying to push it so I'm in the process of a budget conscious upgrade and I wanted a second driver to match my current hammer for cost savings and because of the performance I've seen from it. I've had it in a sealed enclosure that housed a 12" Kenwood SVC originally, but the little Kicker ended that one's life almost immediately. I did buy it used and I think it was a sub par woofer because upon inspection, the speaker just looked cheaply made. Small magnet, small diameter motor/voice coil and a paper cone, but it did say Kenwood on it. The amp I bought new but it's having a hard time with the one I have so I am amp shopping and have become slightly overwhelmed and that's why I'm turning to experts for help. I have a dual enclosure that a buddy gave me for nothing but it's ported and the chambers are way too big for what my drivers call for so I'm going to modify it and am going to be eliminating the ports. I like the performance I have seen with the sealed box that I have now and I don't think I'm interested in changing to a ported box. I've done some homework on box construction and I'm pretty confident that I'll be ok there, I'm only throwing that into the mix because if I understand correctly, it does have an affect on amplifier/driver performance and needs/recommendations.
  2. Im confused as to what dimensions my box needs to be for the SA-8 i got in the mail, i know .6 cubes and around 35 Hz, but i don't know how to construct it, i am a noob, i do need to be walked through on certain things. thanks.
