Need a new amp

Ok...so one of my Infinity 12" subs was taking to much bass and tore away from the rubber lining. So I returned both of them and got two 12" Audibahn subs, here are the specs on it.

Subwoofer: Features dual four-layer AVS voice coils and stamped steel basket. Works with either a ported or sealed enclosure to deliver the best sound possible for your application. KM3 coated paper cone. 400 watts RMS power. I currently have a 1200 watt Sony amp and that cant deal with the new subs. Can anyone suggest an amp that I can use that will be able to power them?

Yeh, what ohms are the speakers and what ohms is the amp stable at?

Re: Need a new amp

You need an amp that is around 700-800W x 1 RMS @ 4ohms

Good luck finding something like that......

Only buy a mono amp (1 channel) and wire it up to see 4ohms for the best sound.

Re: Need a new amp

854W RMS x 1 @ 4ohms Divide this by two and you get 422 rms into each sub

700 x 1 @ 4ohms = 350rms into each sub

Other than that you are not going to find an amp that puts the power you need into it @ 4ohms.... you need to either get one of those or sell the subs and get Dual 2ohm models
