depends if your subs are dvc or svc. mtx 6000s run 250w rms each so the 4250d would run 2 svc at 2 ohm mono and dvc would run 1ohm or 4ohm. the mtx amps only run 2ohm or up so a 2ch amp with good 4ohm power would be better. [img]graemlins/headbang.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

So basically, tell us the impedence of the subs and the # of voice coils and we'll tell you if it will work well or not.

Yes it will work.
It will do [email protected] 12.5v or [email protected] 14.4v.

I would consider this amp from the For Sale section here. A better match for the subs and a good seller. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

350w/2 = 175w each
you don't need to have exactly the power that is printed on the back of the subwoofer. The MTX 250D will be fine and be plenty of power.

Kenwood usually over-rates their products to make them more appealing to buyers. I don't think any real-world comparison has been done, but IMO, 1 MTX watt (RMS @14v) would probably equal 0.75 RMS Kenwood watts. MTX is much more conservative with their power ratings. Its hard to say exactly how much power your subs are really seeing, but considering your subs can handle 250 RMS each, the 600 watt kenwood will probably not hurt the subs, or exceed their power ratings. Again, it depends on how they are wired (bridged, stereo etc). Another thing to keep in mind is that companies like Kenwood often advertise the amplifierís peak power (often double the RMS power rating).
