I have 2 JL Audio 10W1v2-4 speakers with a sealed custom made box to go behind the seat of my crew cab I currently have a Kenwood - 1000W Class D Mono Amplifier with Variable Crossover Model: KAC-8104D but i feels its not enough. I would like to go with a JL Amp I just dont know which one but, any other brand amp will do aslong as it hits good. What amp do you guys recommend for my set up thanks.

This is my box.

What's the model number on your Kenwood amp? Also, are the W1's the 10W1-4 or 10W1-8 (4ohm or 8ohm)?

Those 10's only require 250w-300w RMS. If you want to keep with JL, I would look to the JL 500/1v2. If you really wanted to upgrade, I would cut out the hole to run some flat 12's.

Just FYI, with those together, they create a 2ohm load that your amp sees. Coming from Kenwood's website:

CEA Rated: 500W (1.0% THD+N) (2Ohm/1Ch)

Which giving then 250w RMS is their exact requirements, so it's a good match. If you're looking for an upgrade, you would need to upgrade the speakers too.

No, both subs are connected to the amp, correct? The + from each is connected to the + on the amp, and same thing with the -? there's really no way to mess it up.

If the subs are 4ohm each, and they're both connected to the amp, the amp sees 2ohm and puts out the 500w.
