i have a old kenwood amp and i was wondering if it will work with the 10' alpine type-x or the phoenix gold xenon x10d4?
here is the spec of my old kenwood amp
Kenwood excelon KAC-X201T

Power [email protected] 4 ohms, 50 Wx2
Maximum Output power: 600Wx1
Power Slide
2 Channel
Bass Management System
PowerSlide/B.M.S head unit interface
Power MOSFET Switching Power Supply
Variable Low-Pass Electronic Crossover: 50-200Hz, 24dB per Octave
Variable High-Pass Electronic Crossover: 50-200Hz, 12dB per Octave

TIA!

How many subs are you getting?

If you are only getting one sub, what is the power rating for the amp at 1 channel (bridged) - it should say something along the lines XXW x 1. Ignore the Maximum Output power rating, it is useless.

just one 10' sub... heres some more spec i found of the amp...

Bridged Power Output at 12V (1kHz, 0.5% THD): 200 Watts x 1
Bridged Power Output at 14.4V (1kHz, 0.5% THD): 300 Watts x 1
Maximum Output Power: 600 Watts x 1
Power Output at 2 Ohms, at 12V (1kHz, 0.5% THD): 100 Watts x 2
Power Output at 2 Ohms, at 14.4V (1kHz, 0.5% THD): 150 Watts x 2
Power Output at 4 Ohms, at 12V (20Hz-20kHz, 0.05% THD): 50 Watts x 2
Power Output at 4 Ohms, at 14.4V (20Hz-20kHz, 0.05% THD): 75 Watts x 2

As far as working, it will work. Just make sure you match the subwoofer impedance to the impedance of the amp (it does not say what the bridged impedance is -ohms- , but I am guessing it can't be lower than 4 ohms).

Are you keeping the stock stereo system (radio, amp, speakers)? If that is the case, then although the amplifier is a bit shy on power, it should be ok. If you have, or are planning to upgrade the HK system, then you might want to consider a more powerful amplifier for the sub, or getting two subs instead.
