Re: one or two

IMO 2 would be best. A good 10" woofer will give you good all round bass but wont rock your block off. The bigger your woofers the more low end base you will be able to produce so a 10" is a good balance between low end and thumpy bass for a full sounding system. The type of box you decide on encosing the woofers in will also affect your sounds. Consult your local car audio experts for more info. Good Luck

Gt5 12 inch 275 watts how many watts of amp best?

Depends on what output your stereo is. If you underrate the speakers (speaker watts is less than stereo output), the unit will sound louder for a while, then you end up blowing your speakers with the excess distortion. If you overrate the speakers (speaker watts is higher than stereo output) the speaker will not operate correctly and the distortion can damage it also. Its best to get a close match. Slightly higher is better. It is important you know actual wattage output not PMPO ( Peak music power output) A lot of stereos are rated at PMPO. The higher number sounds great but in reality, the figure is the MAX output and by then the sound is distorting badly. Distortion ruins more speakers than anything else...

Can i use a 300 watt amp for 2, 800 watt woofers

yes, but you would not get the same performance as you would if you gave them the suggested power. I have found that it is always better to use a more powerful amp than your subs are rated for (as long as it is clean, high quality, low distortion power). I have had the best luck with name brand amps (kicker,rockford fosgate,phoenix gold,etc...). I hope this will be helpful to you.

Why does my 6x9 amp drop or not let the sound play at all when my subs are on? it just started to happen? they worked together fine before. i turn the subs off and the 6x9 work? but when i turn the subs on...

You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

Kenwoodxw1000f shut off after 10 sec

the problem sounds like your new sub is drawing to much power and your amp can not handle it. bridging the amp is a good way to get the full power out of your amp. But it isnt always suggested, my solution is to get a bigger amp. I install stereo systems for a living, and i tell my customers that it is smart to get an amp about 100 more watts then the rms rating of your subwoofer.

Just hooked up my new kicker 10 cvrs to zr360

Your light could be dimming because of your altinator or you battery. You need an upgraded altinator to feed yor system what it needs. If you can, talk you your local car audio expert and never go wal-mart or "Anything" kind of stores for car audio advice.Watch this video. This guy has a kickass system with 1 18'' and 3000 watt amp. Put the vid to 52 seconds.

Alpine in dash tv issue

this is the problem with the additional battery wiring. use appropriate cutout and do rewiring. make sure the Dynamo has the enough capacity to charge both the batteries. better avoid using your music system till the problem is rectified.

Is amp big enough for speakers


To run 2 subs, the amp would be a little small. The subs will run OK, they just won't be very loud.

It's usually better to compare and match up the RMS power rather than the peak power. The Sony XS-L10P5B sub has a peak power handling figure of 1200 watts, but the RMS is 300 watts. The Sony XM-ZZR3301 monoblock amp puts out 1100 watts peak, but only 330 watts RMS. They would work great together, 1 sub, 1 amp. But if you add another sub, each one would only be getting about 165 watts. They'd work OK, just not as loud as they could be.

Hope this helps!

Subwoofers were said to be bad

overpowered definitely. when you bridge subs your almost doubling the power. if the subs were set for 2000 then the guy he took them too should have known better or at least turned the power down on the amp.

Need an amp to go with speakers

you could get a 1100 watt amp, but, it is ALWAYS good to get a smaller amp than the max rating so you have a "safe" zone and turn it up all the way so you don't have to worry about always running it at its peak( which sounds better but more chance of blowing it)
