they are D2's...and yes, this is a daily beater, no contests...just good music.D2's or D4's? and for daily id stick to around 500
i'm on board with your school of thought, the E8 v1's held together real well with my PG R8.01 (600 watts @ 2ohm), so you figure 300 going to each sub.It's better to have too much power on tap than not enough. With too much power you can always turn your gains down once you've done your input matching. With too little power you have less headroom and less options down the road.
Unless you're talking a 700RMS bad amp compared to a 500RMS good amp, I would almost never say that its better to get the smaller amp (and those situations would be size/efficiency constraints mostly). Especially if they're the same price, or close.
Ah snap i forgot to reply to this,lol.if i was to look at the 500-750 watt range at 2 ohms, what other amps would you consider other than Kicker??
thanks for the response bud! i'm definitely open to Sundown, I just looked at the 1200d, i think that replaced the 1000d...it's listed at 700+ at 2 ohms. I haven't compared prices with the ZX750.1, so i'll do some more research...Ah snap i forgot to reply to this,lol.
Anyway, i got to thinkin about it, how about ya get a used Sundown 1000d an run it at 2ohms? they put out like 500-600 at 2ohms(Maybe more, can't remember)
