1000 watt or bigger
you always wanna have a little play room with the amp so it wont blow or short out.
also if you do decide to add another sub....the amp will still be able to push both subs..
yeah so at least 1000 would be perfect but if you dont have the money about a 500watt would still push it hard.
just make sure you have all of the options on the amp tuned to make it sound the best and make sure you have the right enclosure for your car. 500 would do...but 1000 would be best =)

Can my la590 American legacy 2 series 800 watt handle Boss CX122 Chaos Exxtreme 12-Inch Subwoofer 4-Ohm Voice Coils??


It is only stable to 4 ohm mono(which is 400 watts RMS or a bit less not the max rating of 800 watts which is a PMPO rating).

Your Sub would have to be wired in series(8 ohm final load, if you wire it in parallel 2 ohm-you will fry that amp).

What size box should i build fro two pioneer 12inch speakers 1200watts each


For optimal performance there is really only one size for the box .Firstly, you get two different types of subwoofers, an open air, or closed air sub. If it is an open air sub ( hole with mesh in the center of the magnet) no ports are required, and the box should be sealed on the inside with silicone sealant. If it is a closed air sub ( no hole in the magnet) you need a 50mm port about 120mm long. If it is a 12 inch speaker, the box size will be 13 inches x 13 inches x 13 inches.

How do I make a sub box for my single ten inch re sx 10 inch sub dat is 1000 rms. Da box needs to be tuned to 35 hz


yeah, you likely cant build a box to tune 35hz... try just building a box that has correct spec by the manufacture for ideal operation, and adjust the gain accordingly, that's where you will attain your desired hertz, oh and by the way hertz refers to signal, and pulse rate,

Amps


It comes down to Amperage and RMS, your best bet is to go in and talk to a salesman at a stereo shop. That way he can decide on what sort of power you want and how you wanna use the subs. But 1000amp AMP is probably a good start 4 channel of course. Alpine or SOny make some kick a$$ AMPS
