What's up y'all,so I'm installing a new system in my wife's suv. I'm doing one 12 sundown xv d2 dvc 4. Wired to 2 ohm,running on a Rockford fosgate t1500. 

Xv d2 is 1500 rms 

t1500 is 1500 rms @ 2ohm

total is 3000 watts 

what do you think is the proper amp kit.

currently have 4 gauge amp kit rated to 3500 watts total with a 300 fuse. 

Do y'all think that's enough or do I have to upgrade or 0 gauge ?

4 guage cannot handle 300 amps, you need to put a smaller fuse on that wire, what you have right now is a fire waiting to happen.

What wiring kit is it?

That amp requires 150 amps of fusing, if its a good 4 guage kit it can handle that no problem

Personally though id still do a run of 1/0 from the front to a distribution block in the back and then 4 guage from that to the amp

That being said a lot of people's definition of "music" is a clipped 30 hz sine wave with some 80 IQ knuckle head grunting about committing crimes and his genitals.

Sorry meant to say 150 fuse.  Also I'm running it to the stock radio using a amp converter. We'll keep the 4 gauge running for couple days. If nothing smell funky I'll keep it that way. If any smell of burning start I'll swap it out to 0 gauge

1) Comes on board.

2) Asks a question.

3) Two people tell him to do it right the first time.

4) Does what he was going to do in the first place.

?
