So it means its better to have the 2 amps run at 4 ohms than 1 ohm.
Will the power out put be same though?

Well yes sub will play better. I think you have 2 Ohm DVC subs ?

Yes out put will be same, but THD will vary. It will be better in the case of 4ohm. There are some amps that produce same output at 4 , 2 and 1 ohm and even same output from 11V - 14.4V.

Thanks for the information buddy.
Also is it ok to feed 1200w rms to a 1000w rms sub. ( by reducing the gains a bit)

IMHO you really don't have to reduce the gains from amp. You can control the sub level from the HU or Bass knob which comes with amps.

Obviously that will be good but there are certain incidents when you need enough bass to avoid hearing cars honking at you when you are crusing at 100kmph on an expressway.

Thanks for the link too.

Guys, any idea what all amps can i get for 20k in India which produce close to 1000-1200w rms at 1ohm / 4 ohm.
Leaving the JBL 14001 aside please as that is already in the list of probables and i know about the working of that amp.

abhibh, i am quite illiterate when it comes to all this, but i never knew that damping factor is such a big factor when it comes to choosing an amplifier. i always tended to ignore it, as according to what I have read, damping factor is a minute thing while choosing amplifiers and is only considered in seriously high end amps. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

2 GZ SPL's and you still expect to hear horns on the expressway
On a more serious note, it is VERY important not to block out all the ambient sounds from outside totally. As it is, our highly damped automobiles block out the sound from outside!
I'd say the GZ Uranium might fit well according to your needs, but the budget needs to be upped slightly. Slightly because i think LBM will give you a 'small' discount based on your monthly trips to him for your ever expanding ICE!

It will. But in that case i will have 1 amp at 4 ohms and 1 at 1 ohm. giving different power. I don't want any mismatch.
Want the 2 subs to get the same power from similar branded amp and play in tandem(hope i spelled it correctly)

That is because my subs need 2000wrms
uranium gives 1000w rms at 1 ohm.
2 subs will mean running at 2 ohms/ 8ohms. ( lesser power 600w at 2 ohms)
If i power both the subs , there will drop in the bass , kick, punch etc. So wanted something with which i can run my subs at full potential.

Not kenwood.
Personally do not like them.

Another 14001 is an option.
But looking for an alternate too so that i can compare and get the one i like.

@ Doc.
Its 1000w rms at 1 ohm and 600w rms at 2 ohms.

The GZ is out of budget so lets keep that a bit aside.

Any other than 14001 and keeping the kenwood out of option?
