    So my 800w Amp just died the other day and I'm looking for a decent replacement. I'm not looking to spend a whole lot as I'm not looking to have a competition system or anything. I was looking on a local site and found a Volfenhag 800w for sale with a 12" Alpine Sub for all of $75. I was going to get it, but the guy never called me back about it. So I decided to hop on eBay to see what I could find.

    So I found a 1000w for not too much more than an 800w. Should this be a decent enough amp for my dual 12s"?

    :hsugh:

    tip: never gauge amplifier power by its peak output, gauge it by RMS

    2 Memphis 12"s. I don't even remember the model of them, they're a good 3-4 years old now.

    4 Ohm coils? Single coil per speaker? Those are the default.

    Assuming all that is true, you need a 2 Ohm stable amp so that you can wire the subs in parallel.

    Well, apparently the amp that got fried wasn't shit either, I'm not all into Audio knowledge. But I just looked up my current amp that I traded a friend for years ago, and turns out it was only 2x125w @ 4 Ohms as well. So it wasn't that far off from the amp I posted. :mamoru:

    But my best friend is pretty decent when it comes to stereo equipment, and will probably help me out, if we could get our work schedule conflict out of the way. But anyway, how about this one?

    Lanzar Max Pro

    As for my current speakers, I'll have to take them out of the box I suppose to get the model numbers. But won't be able to do that for a few hours. But if I remember correctly, they can handle up to 400w each?

    lanzar sucks for the most part. for subs, your best bet is to get a class D amp thatll push decent power to subs more efficiently, if you're on a tight budget, just get something like a kicker 400.1 or so

    ive come to the conclusion that stereos arent a thing where being on a budget should even be applied

    The other thing, I look at "Peak" as ILS. If Lightning Strikes.
