Watt Amp

What watt amp would i need for sounds?

I am planning on getting two 10-12 inch orion cobalt subs, i want to know what is a desirable watt amp i should get?

When looking for car audio equipment it is so subjective. It is like buying a car. There are so many makes and models which one do you choose?
One thing I look for in an amp is the ratings of it.
Example...
THD, Power Rating, regulated or unregulated, preamp out, these are the main rating I look at.

Check these sites out...it is a good reference.

- Also check this out http://www.youtube.com and all related videos...Look for the guy in the blue collared shirt. Type “car audio systems” in the search engine. He gives a lot of very good info.

If your headlight dims with the bass notes, the “BIG 3” might work. If not an H.O. alternator will be needed, or else be prepared to pour a lot of $$$ for batteries.

This site explains the "BIG 3" upgrades.

I've designed my car for SQ (Sound Quality) not SPL (Sound Pressure Level) my imaging is very good. The bass sounds as if it is up front and my 12 inch sub (picture as shown) in the trunk. I LOVE how it all worked out.

GOOD LUCK and have fun…
