Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a pair of kicker cvx 12's (pushing 750 rms each) and a pair of kicker 1500.1 mono block amps and I need to run a capacitor in order to run both amps off of my cars battery. Any idea what size and kind of capacitor I should get to split my 12V cable between the two amps?

SOURCE: What amp size do I need
If the subs are going to be wired at 2 ohms you will need a class d amp that is 1200 watts at two ohms rms i would say you should probably be running zero gauge wire and at least a two fared cap

You have 2 subs and 2 amps right?In that case make sure that the amps are capable of stable 1ohm load and also you'll need a lot of power and 4 gauge power cable for each amp with fuse of course.
Now....take one sub and connect the (-) with the (-) and the (+) with the (+).Now you have one (+) and one(-) to connect to the amp.Do the same with the other sub and you're ready to rock!!

SOURCE: installing two amps
No, thats what you don't what to do. Even if you have 2 matching amps you don't do that. Every amp puts out different, and for 2 subs, you want to play at the the same time. If your only running 2 10's, I personal would just run the alpine (it's a mono amp made especially for subs) thats plenty for what you have. make sure you bridge them to get the full response. And your other amp i would use for your highs or mids, but run it @ stereo , which is 300 w @ 4 ohms. (Note: 600w @ 2ohms would be bridged and would play in Mono)
Building Competition stereo's is a big hobby of mine.

SOURCE: DONT KNOW HOW TO RUN 2 OHMS
If you have the Kicker model number 06CVX122, with dual 2ohm voice coils, they can be connected to a mono amp at 2ohms. First jumper the voice coils in series, the dotted positive (+) to the undotted negative (-) (or vice versa). Each sub is now 4ohms. Then wire both of the remaining positives and negatives together on the amp terminals (in parallel). The amp sees a 2ohm load. Here's the diagram:
If you have the Kicker model number 06CVX124 with dual 4ohm voice coils, they cannot be wired to present a 2ohm load. They can only be wired as a 1ohm load (too low for the amp) or as a 4ohm load (at reduced power). Here is the diagram of the 4ohm wiring:
Hope this helps.
