I would like to no wat amp wud be best to power these as I'm not whiz when it comes to this.

Also have a 5000w wiring kit 0awg, was told it was good?

Looking forward to ur replys cheers

by goal I ment what you wanted the setup to do , the zero gauge kit will be a good start , especially if you can do the big 3 under the hood , and add another ground in the rear of the vehicle , 2 12s will work very well , I would suggest a slot port type enclosure , or a precision port design subs and port firing up , a pair of those will work just fine , I would suggest purchasing them in a dual 2 ohm configuration if possible that way you your not wired to low , and your electrical wont have any issues , otherwise if they only come in a dual 4 configuration your going to want to look for a 1 ohm stable amplfiier because at 4 ohm the rise will hurt your power big time especially with box rise ,

these guys make a nice 1000 watt amplfier for around what your wanting to spend



would give you 750 to 1000 watts at 1 ohm that would ideal for what your wanting
