Plan as of now is for Sealed Enclosure, now the no partitions thing I have to Speak to the installer, but the plan is basically to save space and at the same time Have tight bass, this is not an SPL setup, my friend just wanted a midblowing setup which looks really cool too.
Amp and subs already bought and I don think he will invest into another 20001bd now, also that amp has actualy power rating on the chart of nearly 2800 RMS
so, any more than that the Audiobahns will Blow probably with any hitch in tuning.

even if the birth sheet says 2800 watts that is at 14.4 volts which is rarelly achived at full volume but any ways this amp can easlily drive 3 subs easily but again not to full extent......

Audiobahn ALUMs are pretty sensitive...hence one T20001bd is enough for three of them.

Yep, you right, and whoever knows Audiobahn well will say that,
RF BD amps are coil burners, they produce some brute power, Pure SPL.

Amps like Punch and Type RF are more on the SQ side, Especially Type RF.

Default Amp issues

I have a kenwood kdc5029 hu with 6" JBL cs series speakers in front and the rear speakers are JBLgto937 2ohm speakers. The sound quality was horrible at first so i fixed a sony 2 channel xm-552zr amp for the rear speakers. The sound quality is awesome now but the amp blew in 1 hr of installation so i got it replaced imm. After a month it again blew. What could be the problem...the service guy says that 2ohm speakers should not be used . BUt the amp manual says that it supports 2ohm speakers. Now i also have a 12" pioneer sub which is 4ohms and 300w nominal rating . The amp is still in the serviced centre and it will take a week for it to be ready. Now can i fit the subwoofer also to the amp or will it again blow? Please Help!!

The amp should not blow, you need to get your wiring checked, mostly the problem might be blowing mosfets, the amp can support 2 Ohm speakers but how were they connected ?
If it was bridged, since this is a 2 channel amp , and when bridged the resulting impedance is 4 Ohms, so if the speakers / sub are at 2 Ohms it's overloading the amp. (bridging is only to use subs, not speakers)
If the speakers were connected in Stereo, then there has to be something with the wiring, find yourself someone who can carry out a full wiring checkup who knows his work.
Cheers.

What price did you pay for the Amp? Was it purchased in India? if so from where?

Since Ron is not around I will pitch in,
20001bds are not avilable easily here, with B&W it would cost about Rs 85k +
without B&W it's not avialable,

Similar power Hifonics BXi2006d amp available for Rs 35k with B&W.

JBL also has a monster amp, the A3000GTi, contact Sam for pricing.

The A3000GTi costs Rs.2.5lacs. One sold in India.
The A6000GTi costs Rs. 4.5lacs. None sold in India. LBM is planning to buy one

Both come with a 7 year warranty.

Can the two subs be wired in series to other ?
Experts, If my calculations were wrong tell me what is right ?
I'd like to add to this one, the Audiobahn A8002T is -

2 x 200W RMS @ 4 Ohm
2 x 400W RMS @ 2 Ohm
1 x 800W RMS @ 4 Ohm

To power a dual 4 Ohms sub, then you will want to wire them in "Series Parallel". Basically you create 2, 8-ohm subwoofers, and run them parallel bridged to the amplifier. This will give you a 4 ohm bridged load at the amplifier, and deliver 400 watts RMS to each subwoofer. This is the only way to power dual 4 Ohm subs from the Audiobahn A8002T as I have done for my pair of Pioneer 306 DVC.
