How many channels do these amps have and is it 600WRMS and 300WRMS or 600max and 300max.

Also what are the subs rated?

Ideally u want all subs powered perfectly for their RMS,or a tad under,none over

IE (example only)

400W RMS 15" sub will need a 400W RMS or less monoblock amp

2x250W RMS 12" subs will need a 2x250 (or 4x125)W RMS 2 channel/4 channel amp

2x200W RMS 10" subs will need a 2x200 (or 4x100)W RMS 2 channel/4 channel amp

If the amp power is 50W RMS less than needed thats ok but any less and ur wasting space and weight fitting 5 underpowered subs

What are u putting these in?

go to check point and get your self an rpg 3000, that will throw 600w rms at each 12, do the same for the 10 s and one by its self for the 15, cost you 600 but will be the bollocks, remember, do it right first time round

Is this amp anygood??

I am running on a budget so have to get what i can.

What should i be looking for in a amp.

Andy the ice is going in the fezzy the 4i is haveing little ice in it but good stuff so it sounds great and goes like mad.

Do agree thought does weight the car down when i took the 3 12" subs out th bm it made a massive difference.

Ohm's whats that.

I know sod all about ice all i know is i heard a mates car when i was in london running 1. 15" sun and 1. 12" sub and it sounded great.

But i am going to run

1-15"
2-12"
and 2-10" subs.

Will try and get the power of the suns up soon.

Cheers peps.

I know when i took the 3-12"subs out the bmw it went so much better.

People dont realize some times how big a difference weight can make.
