What do you guys think??

Kicker if you want them to last. I use Elemental Design subs. They hit hard & low.

i well i had my old set of kickers for like maybe 7 months and i was powering them by a 1200 watt Planet Audio monoblock amp, it was turned down since i had 2 and they together handled 800 w rms as a pair and i didnt want to overpower them. but one of them had a weird hum to it when it played, i never could figure it out.

but i actually opted for a set of Power Acoustik P2-15w, they are 15" subwoofers and they are rated around 1200 w rms which i would prob say may be overrated a little bit. I have never owned anything power acoustik so i will see how they handle everything.
