Amp for Pioneer Premier Subs TS-W1500SPL

I have (2) two 10" pioneer premier subwoofers in a dual 10" 1.0 sealed enclosure. I need suggestions on what kind of amp I should use to push them. Their ratings are 600 watts nominal power and 1500 watts max.

JBL 1200.1 maybe? That's 1200 watts RMS, which is exactly what you need if the sub's ratings are 600 watts RMS. Are the subs dual 4 ohm or single 4 ohm or what? You can wire these subs up together parallel to the amp at 1 ohm safely.. I've done it for a long time and my amp doesn't even overheat, it's great. I'm using the same thing, a JBL 1200.1.

Double 4-Layer, Long Voice Coi (2 x 4 Ohm)
They have a DVC (Dual Voice Coil) DESIGN at 2 Ohm or 8 Ohm,
Frequency Response is 18 - 2500Hz and,
the Sensitivity is 87dB (1W/1m)

I am looking for an amp that is 2 Ohm compatible and has two channels with around 600 watts RMS per channel.

So if anyone knows of anything that is close to those specs, holla up and let me know what the amp is.

The amp I recommended is exactly what you're looking for. It 1200 watts at 2 ohms x 1 channel, but it is bridgeable so if you have 2 subs bridged to it you will send 600 watts to each sub. The amp is stable up to 1 ohm and doesn't even get hot.

DVC 2 x 4 Ohm speakers cannot be wired both to one channel and have the 2 Ohm impendence. Its only 4 ohm offered. These subs must be run at 2 or 8 Ohm.

ok, so run each sub at 2 ohms.

then take the pair and run them at 1ohm.

perfect on a jbl 1200.1

I am probably gonna get a Rockford Fosgate Power 1000.2 amp. This amp will be putting 500 watts RMS out to each channel and I can run each speaker at 2 Ohm.

southern1inla will become famous soon enough



the jbl bp1200.1 will run at 1ohm.

it will deliver 1200w+ rms at either 1ohm or 2ohm loads. i have run a bp1200.1 as a daily driver amp for quite a while now, and it never heats up.
