I got a suggestion.
go with a class d or a mono block amplifier and subs that match, ask the retailer where you purchase for the best suited pair and tell em you want an amp that is stable @ 2ohms by 2 channels this wiring method is the best way to get the most out of an amp. and then you could either runn the subs in series or parralel if you need mor info just ask or you can visit www.12volt.com
hope this helps

The best lens depends on what you want to do with it. The 18-200mm gives you a wide focal length range in a single lens. If you don't need the full range, there are other options, such as the 55-200mm, 18-105mm, and 18-135mm. There are also shorter lenses, such as the 10-24mm, and longer lenses, such as the 70-300mm.

One of the major advantages of an SLR over a point&shoot is that you CAN change lenses when you want to.

Have kenwood mono amp 4,2,1 ohm capabilitie. What is the best sub to run. The amp is 1600 watts, howmany ohms and 1 or 2 voice coils.


Hello pelikant75,

The best answer depends on your budget for the sub(s) and exactly what kind of sound you are looking to get. Your amps RMS output at 4 ohms is 200 watts and at 2 ohms, it's 400 watts. I could not find that it was 1 ohm stable.

If you are looking for the absolute best bang for your buck, I would highly recommend a pair of entry level MTX 10" subs, model 4501-04, currently priced by Crutchfield at $49.99. And if you buy a pair, they throw in a free Bass Slammer BS210S sealed enclosure. The MTX's power range is 112.5 to 225 watts each, right in there with your amps output. 2 of them in parallel give you a 2 ohm load, just right for your amps best power. And they sound great. You simply can't find a better deal for $100 bucks!

If you want a little better SQ, a pair of Rockford-Fosgate P1S410's should be considered. Again, going to Crutchfield, they currently have this one "BOGO" (buy one get one) for $99.99. You will have to provide your own box, though, no free one with these.

Finally, if you want the best SQ, and your budget allows, consider a set of Alpine SWR-1022D's for $179.99 each. These have dual 2 ohm voice coils, allowing you to series the coils and parallel the subs, resulting in a 2 ohm load to you amp just like the MTX's and RF's recommended above. You will probably want a somewhat larger enclosure for the Alpines as well as a fatter wallet. Your amp is right at the lower end for powering them, so they probably will not be as loud. But they will sound good.

One thing we haven't discussed is the box. The enclosure is just as important, perhaps even more important than the sub(s). More accurate bass is generally produced from a sealed enclosure. A ported enclosure will be louder, but at the expense of sound quality. And whether it's sealed or ported, the enclosure needs to have enough internal volume for the particular sub you are planning to use. A sealed box in the range of .75 to 1 cu/ft will be OK for any of the recommended subs. Add about 15-20% more volume for a ported box and keep in mind that the port needs to be specifically sized for the frequency for which it is tuned.

Hope this helps.

Suitable CPU air cooler


I suppose you have done your homework as to if u really *need* to buy a new cooler. Is ur CPU getting HOT? what temperatures does it run at? Your choice of cooler depends on what you plan to do with it. Do you plan to overclock your system? I would suggest a Coolermaster stock copper cooling system. Zalman is also good but expensive. But as i said depends on what u wanna do with the system and if u really need that extra cooling if you dont plan to overclock your system.
