It is recommended to use a 1000 watt to run 2 10's sufficiently, so I would reccomend buying two of them if you can.

huh? Depends what 10s you're talking about.


What kind of kicker 12s? What do the speakers recommend?

Agreed. If you run a true 1000 watts to 2 10's not many of them could handle that or would at least be overkill.

You have to look at RMS, enclosure design and size, impedence etc.
1000 watts is ALOT !!! You'll be bouncing the voice coil off the stops or the cone will fly right out of the basket !!!

Sorry I am not beating you up over it. Just trying to help. the first year I competed I ran in the 100 watt class in IASCA. (2) 25x2 Orion HCCA ams. for the class at the time it was either that or Sound Stream.
I had two 10's, SVC running in parallel. The one amp running bridged mono, with the button in, this then being 2 Ohms mono, kicked ass for SPL comps, and then was all but off for sound quality. I had the front amp running 1 Ohm stereo so that was beefed up a bit.
But you do not need alot of power to get alot of sound. Each sub saw 0.67 cubes sealed. Plenty for a VW Corrado. He, the system with 100 watts landed me 5th in the nation in 1995 in WACC ( world autosound comp circuit)

*shrug* my Boston 10s are rated at 1100 watts each (.5 cubes each sealed), but I'm not running anything near that to them. Liek it's been said, all depends what kind of subs you've got.
