Hey all on this forum. I have a debate whether I want to use 2 old school Rockford Fosgate 1001BD power amps to push 2 MTX Audio 9515-44s or instead go for an American Bass PH-4000 MD to push them @ 1ohm. Power consumption isn't really a concern but I want to know if it's worth getting 2 RF amps or just having one amp to push them both.

Thanks "Miguels" for your input but this will not do any good in helping me what I am looking for

It's not that hard to "READ THE RULES" to figure out why he said what he said....

Thanks but this won't help either honestly. If you don't anything constructive to say then please move along

      I’m buying 4 2ohm subs yet I’m putting them in two separate boxes I’m going to wire it down to 1 ohm but the problem is how would I do it since there’s two separate boxes?

      Can someone be nice enough to help me with a ported box plan for one American bass xd12 on 500 watts. It will be my first box build so something simple to follow. I found one for a sundown audio e12v3 I think it is...I know it' is not the exact sub but it' s a ballpark figure to go off of...any help is greatly appreciated.  It's going in to a 14 hyundai sonata so the trunk is rather big so no space problems

      My good friend Aaron, aka Psyph Morrison, has never had a real system in any of his cars before.  If you don't know who Psyph is (pronounced Sife), look him up on itunes, spotify or any other music app out there.  Youtube as well.  I have known him over 10 years and even worked with him on his last 3 albums as an executive producer.  Ok, now that is out of the way, the reason he is getting a system is because well, the entire time i have known him and worked with him making music, especially music with a lot of bass, he has never had a system of his own. I don't know anyone who has had more car issues than him so we really never made it to the discussion of a system. Not too long ago he picked up a 2002 Honda Accord 4 door.  I knew right then he has a reliable vehicle finally.  So i offered to slap some beat in it for him.  Watching him pull up, slapping his own music in a (not so great) stock sound system was really bothering me.  How can my boy ride around like that if he know's ME? 
       
      Long story cut short...his car is at my shop for a few weeks while i figure out what i am going to do. I have NO "plans".  I just want to get him some good equipment, set it up proper and make him happy!
       
      ****NOTE, anything you see here is subject to change as i am totally freestyling this.  Trying to just make it work.
       
      First i stopped by Arden Audio in Sacramento Ca.  They always have what i need in stock over there and if they don't i can get it same or next day.  I decided to pick Psyph up a new head unit first and foremost.  I also got the dash kit and wiring harness to go with it.  Grabbed some SkyHigh 16ga OFC speaker wire to run to the doors. 
       
      The system will consist of (so far)
      Pioneer DEH X7800 BHS Head Unit
      Rockford Fosgate Punch 1000.1 (BASS)
      Rockford Fosgate Punch 300.2 (Highs)
      (2) Rockford Fosgate P3 12" subs (ported enclosure)
      (1) Set Rockford Fosgate T2 6.5" separates 
      SMD Fuse / Grounding Blocks
      Mechman 1/0 OFC Power Wire
      Skyhigh 12 and 16ga Speaker Wire
       

       
       
       

       

       
      I already had a P300.2 but i got him a matching 1000.1 to go with it.
       
       

       
       

       
       

       
       
       

       
      These P3 12" subs are not brand new but might as well be. They are in brand new condition! They are my old ones.  This box was already finished and just hanging around the shop.  I KNOW it sounds good so it should do great in his trunk!  The trunk floor is at an angle so i have to make a platform and flatten it out some so the box sits level.
