What would be a good amp to power 2 pioneer shallow mount subwoofers?

Recommended Posts

I trying to find a new amp to power my woofers. I have 2 pioneer 12" shallow mount subwoofers. My current amp is a kicker 750.1 but it keeps going into protection mode so I cant even bump it at all. The woofers are said to be able to take 1500 each.

Never ever look at maximum power numbers. Those are 400 watt subwoofers. I have one and I've run a true 300 to it for the last 8 years. It would take more.

Single 4 ohm subs you want an amp that is 800-1000 real watts at 2 ohms.

Single 2 ohm subs you want an amp that is 800-1000 real watts at 1 ohm.

Yes sir on the pioneer. I dont much like any other pioneer products. But their GM-D series amps are the real deal.

I just bought the same 12s and I have a pioneer gm-d8601, was on giving 300rms at 4ohms and amp was protecting and barely hitting at all, wired them at 2 ohm sonic pushing 500, but amp still protects, looking at getting gm-d9701 for more power, fyi 2002 dodge ram, under back seat dual sealed enclosure, any input would be much appreciated!!!
