It all depends on the wattage of your subs. you need an amp more powerful than the both subs combined. For example. for 2 500 watt subs, you'll need at least a 1200 watt amp. amps should never be truned up to full power, 80% max as they tend to blow more quickly and overheat when on max. ideally you want an amp over the total combined wattage of your both subs so you dont need your amp on max for the best sound for you subs.
what wattage are the subs and amp? if your subs are more wattage than your amp, your amp will blow fuses as cant handle the output to your subs. for example. you have 2 500 watt subs and a 300 watt amp, that is no good as amp isnt powerful enough. if you have 2 500 watt subs you need at least a 1200 watt amp to power them both. 200 watt more than the combined wattage of subs as amps should never be turned up to max as they tend to blow and overheat more quickly. 80% volume on amps is reccomended by installers and manufactures.
I would recommend you purchase a brand name 600watt RMS amp instead of a Jensen 1200 watt peak amp. Trust me you will notice the difference. Try a kicker, hifonics, MTX, audiobahn Autotech... Its not the watts its the quality of the watts..
Unfortunately some of these speakers today... DO NOT PERFORM up to peak as they should.The on logical reason for this to be happening it that the speakers are NOT very DURABLE and cannot take constant playing. I would recommend to L7 the can take alot more abuse than your average speakers. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
The power antenna wire only supplies 12vdc when the radio is on. When CD or other sources are selected, the power antenna wire goes to 0vdc. The remote turn-on wire provides 12vdc whenever the head-unit is on. If your amps are powered on only when the radio is turned on, I would bet that you have the power antenna wire connected and not the remote turnon wire.
