^LOL because you know the impedance of his subs and what ohm load his amp puts out the most power at? OP, We need more info on your stuff so we can help you out more.

From what he was posting earlier his amp is the Rockford Fosgate T1500 and the subs are 2 Kicker CVX12's.

But we need to know if his CVX's are 2 ohm or 4.

sorry guys, there are two 2 ohm 2010 edition CVX's with 750rms each and the T1500 is a mono block with 1000 watts x 1 @ 4ohm, 1500 watts x 1 @ 2ohm, and 1500 watts x 1 @ 1ohm.

thanks

Look on Sonic Electronics they will tell you how to wire your subs with 2 ohm Independence to your amp.

If they're Dual 2's wire them both to 4 ohm then back down to 2 ohm at the amp. If they're Single 2 ohms, wire down to 1 ohm.
