Looking for a new amp finnaly. My old Kennwood is just crappy and I'd like to upgrade. The sub sounds "okay" with the current amp, but its time to find something new. Id like to get the most out of my single sub.
I'd like to go with either Rockford or Kicker on a new amp. Under $300. The sub is rated at 125W at 4ohms. Id like an amp around 200w if not more, but not sure if it could handle it. What do you guys recommend I go with? What brand? Model? Etc....
While the JL sub's are built extremely tough and are a bit under rated, I would still try and stay a bit closer to the RMS powering handling of the subwoofer when looking at the RMS output of the amplifier. For Rockford Fosgate, the P300-1 is an excellent option. From the Kicker line-up, the ZX300.1 is the best match. Either one of these amplifiers will need an 8 gauge wiring kit if you don't already have one. The StreetWires PSK08Bi Amplifier Wiring Kit is a great kit should you need to pick one up. While both of these amplifiers are not yet available, we should be seeing them here very soon.
Both of these amplifiers options are excellent and will provide years of rock solid performance. You really can't go wrong either way. Also, should you ever decide to add a second JL 12w0-4 sub, the resistance will be dropped to 2ohms and you'll see twice the power to provide a perfect power compliment to both of the subwoofers.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
