Default Got some problems

Alright, I recently got a RD 1750.1 and a 15" RD Sonance from Steve. Everything is fine but I'm having some trouble getting them in. Basically, I had an old setup with a kicker zx750 and 2 cvr's and I just wanted to swap the subs and amp out for the new stuff. I got the 1750 and a d2 sonance, because I will be getting a new car around springtime and I plan on picking up another sonance. The d2 is wired at 1 ohm and I am trying to set the gains on the amp. That is where the problem starts. I'm just trying to set it by ear right now and so I start to turn the gain up slowly. I reach about half gain, and the sub is barely moving. I can hear it and everything but it is just very quiet. I want to run the sub at about 800-1000 watts. When I turn music about 3/4 volume and the gain halfway, my capacitor (keep in mind this is an old setup) says 0-1 amps and its at about 13.9-14 volts. I am not an expert by any means and this could be some stupid mistake I'm making, but I want to get it figured out. Also, all wiring is 4 gauge for now, and I have a stock 105 amp alternator, if it matters. I need some help PLEASE.

Thank you, and sorry for the long post.

I agree because it should be pushing pretty hard.

remove the cap, try again lol.

check all HU settings, etc?

and turn your gain higher than 1/2.

you check to see if your even getting the correct voltage?

1000*sqrt=31.6(voltage you need)

all eq's and settings are off, and i tried doing it with the dmm before this and was not getting anywhere near 31.6 volts when half way up. also, as i kept turning the gain, voltage went up but still even with gain at about 3/4 it wasnt near 31.6. i could always try taking the cap out, but i didnt change anything so i thought i would just be able to swap in the new stuff.

Start form the beginning. Check power wire from the bat back and make sure you have the proper fuse installed. Remove the cap. Check your ground and make sure it is metal on metal no paint left where it connects to the chassis and no corrosion or rust also.

i can do all that also, but i dont understand, how i could be running the kicker amp with no problems, then not change anything, and suddenly somethings wrong. the only thing i changed was my fuse under the hood, but i just replaced it with the same one i had before.

alright well i'll give everything a try a little later. thanks guys.
