sorry as was not able to post as had to go out of town for some urgent work,

Rear : pioneer 6 X 9 ovals (present one's)
Front comps : Kicker DS 680.2 (rs 6500)
Subwoofer/bass tube : 2 X JBL GT5-12 [rs 3500*2(for the woofers) + rs 2200(for the woofer enclosure)]
Amplifier : Kenwood 8401 (for front and rear speakers) (approx 6000)
Amplifier 2 : 2 X Pioneer GM 7300M (rs 8000*2)(1for each sub) or Kenwood 9301D (rs 15000)

there are quite a few damping materials out there. stick to one made from butyl rubber and it will last. There are some butyl/asphalt composites that you should avoid just make sure it says 100% butyl rubber and nothing else.

Dynamat is most well known but I have used American Dynamics and heard of Nose Kill and a lot of other stuff.

I don't know about the distributor part, as I have seen the same amp selling at Driven for as much. So I can safely assume thats the normal going rate.

One thing I cannot understand about the kenwood amp is that the fuse rating is 60A. Assuming 90% efficiency also we only get 777 watts @14.4v

How can kenwood claim this amp has an rms rating of over 900W ?

Can anyone care to explain whether I am right or wrong ?

I would not consider it as 90 % efficient

its a good amp, but i can't tell you much about its total power as i am hardly using half of its 900w rms at 2 ohms, it is powering just one ID 12" sub. it is 1 ohm stable so i believe its powerful enough. i got this amp as in future if i want to add another sub, i have enough power.

What? 900W RMS amplifier for 12k?

900 sounds way too exaggerated to me!

1 ohms stable does not mean it will produce more output. There can be a case in which a amp will be

100 watts rms at 4 ohms
150 watts rms at 2 ohms
150 watts rms at 1 ohms

With this one can see that the amp is having a good power supply and out put stage. But running it at 1 ohms will make it work at it peak output.

guys, i am no professional in ICE equipment, i am telling what its spec says, it says 500w rms at 4 ohms, 900w rms at 2/1 ohm. i am satisfied with the amp as using only 1 sub with it. i got it for 12k without B & W.

For 12k it's a great option mate.Kenwood amps are quite reliable amp and they deliver their rated power,
@Sanchit do us a favour why don't you measure the power they give out?
I am looking fwd to but the same amp soon.....
cheers!
