Would you consider this amp good to push these speakers? Are these speakers good?
Is it okay if I use a Memphis amp which pushes out 1100 RMS to power 2 fosgate power 10s that are rated at 150-600 rms each ? So 550 to each sub?
The amp will clip if the volume is too high. And if the amp isn't as capable as the speakers, you won't have much audible warning; by the time you hear clipping it might be too late. On the contrary, if the amp is better than the speakers the drivers will just distort, which gives you a nice reminder to calm down on the volume.
That amp sounds good, and the speakers are decent too. As long as you have a good headunit and tune it all properly, that should be a great sounding system.
The Memphis amp, is it 1100rms into 2ohms? And what is the impedance of the subs?
