first off kenwood amps are crap
you probably wont even get 900w out if it.

if i were you i would get 2 Dual 2 ohm kicker 12" cvrs
more cone area
Want to prove to me the kenwood he's talking about is over rated?

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.

apperantly you've never owned any upper model kenwood amps.

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.

I think there's too many factors to say that fuse rating is the tell all. Efficiency for one, and like my old rubi 1002, only has 80 amps of fusing but pumps out shitloads of power.

you could get power out of the amp. i never had any problems out of the kenwoods that i had.

i agree, internal caps add power to the amp but only for a quick sec. but it takes power to make power. Even if the amp was 100% effiecient 14.4V x 60A = 864 Watts

but again fuses do not go out as soon as they hit their limit. so 60A(125%) = 75A * 14.4V = 1080 Watts but again at 100%

All really depends on the design of the amp, and what it does with higher voltage etc.

Def a valid point.

Although an amp my have a fuse of 30 amps, the actual draw could be much higher than that.

most cars dont do over 14.4V though. but its a good amp, if you are using it for a daily beater id stick with it until you need more power.
