I finally ordered my sub and i got the kicker L5 12", now i need help on an amp. I was looking at kicker or diamond amps and the guy at stereotomy said the sub wants 600 watts so any ideas would be helpful.

yea but kicker has a 500 watt amp and a 750 watt amp. so youre saying go with the 750 watt and tune it down a bit?

also, what box would give me the best sound, im looking for loud deep bass that when I turn on that lil wayne, everyone knows im coming haha. but at the same time want to be able to listen to rock and techno and everything, i like it all.

yea ive heard that the 750 can give out around 930-940. but i have no plans to upgrade the sub anytime soon because after this im movin on to other parts of the car, i just wanted some good sound first. I dont want to underpower the sub, and i dont want to blow it out either.

any other companies that would make an amp that matches good with this sub?

I saw an alpine 600 watt amp and was wondering if that would be perfect?

I'd go with the Kicker 500 or the Alpine MRP-M500. I've heard of a lot of people blowing the L5's with out a problem. However that kind of depends on how your using it. I recently blew a Alpine type R 12' with only a 600 watt cerwin vega that didn't make much sense to me.
