speaker and amp help

well i think i have decided to get 2 12" Kicker Solobaric L5s(4ohm Version). my question is do i need 2 600 watt mono channel amps to power these or one 1200 watt 2 channel amp? or what other options do i have? Anyone who has these speakers please post your opinons on them, and your setup. thanks!

I dont have these speakers but you have three options in powering the two subs.

1) get two 600watt @ 4ohm amps, one amp to power each sub (wire mess with this setup)

2) get one 600watt mono amp that is stable with a 2ohm load because when 2 subs, that are 4ohm, are wired in parallel an amp "recognizes" it as one sub runnin at 2ohm. Another name for this type of setup is bridging. (best setup to run with, and inexpensive)

3) last option would be to get a 1200watt 2 channel amp but the bass will be playin in stereo mode instead of mono so your beat may sound weird with some songs. (more expensive because of amount of power and usually amp is bigger if space is an issue)

anybody correct me if i am wrong, but i doubt it, hope i helped. thumbsup

ravertony is right, and I would also suggest bridging. The bass from the two subs may actually cancel each other out to an extent if you're running in stereo, and you'll lose a little sound quality.
