Do not use bass boost at all regardless of what sub(s) you're running. You cannot wire two dual 4 ohm subs to 2 ohms, and you need 2 dual 2's, or 2 single 4's which Kicker does not have in the current lineup.

Could you come up with your own thoughts please? I know you're smarter than this.

some kenwoods are overrated. the only way to tell is by this formula, 1 amp of fuse = 10 watts. if it is a true 900 watt amp it will have 90A of fusing.
