  1. Amplifier question.

    System Design: Help Me Choose Equipment For My Car
    Hi. I just got into car audio and I have a possibly stupid question. Lets say I have two subs rated at 500W RMS each and an amp rated at 1000W RMS. Do the subs share the load, making it a 1000W total or will that overpower the subs? Thanks. :)
