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

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.

?

Im curious how a subwoofer rated for 1500w rms paired with an amp that is 1500w rms equals a 3000w total system.....
