i want loudness but at the same time sounding good.

just wondered wether the 2 or the 4 becuase witht the 2 its both kickin out 600rms so they are quite powerfull each sub but the 4, they are only 400rms each so no as powerfull each one but more of them.

rms power handling doesnt make them 'louder' its mearely the stiffnes of the sub to move the cone.

bass loudness is how much air it moves, so important figures are cone area and excursion.

Get those RE subs u wont be disappointed.

just trust me and get the RE's, they r well known for big excursion and as such the loudness u want.
All more powerhandling gives is better contol over a big magnet basically.

hmm hadnt noticed that.

with 4 4ohm coils u wud show the amp either 1 ohm or a 4 ohm load.

So with that amp it wud be powered at 750w rms for the 2 which aint good.

u wud really need a 1 ohm stable amp...

Well u wud run it at 1 ohm.

Wire each sub in parralel to make each one a 2 ohm load. Then wire those 2 loads to the amp in parralel to show 1 ohm.

Work a treat!
