So I bought 3 Kenwood KFC-W12PS 12" subs the other day at bestbuy and the Rms on them is 250 SVC 4olm. The guy told me I should prolly wanna run the Kicker DX10001 anything less wouldn't push em. Some reason I'm not believing that. Really not wanting to order one online just pick up in store and go. Any suggestions on a amp

you dont "need" that much to push them, but you wouldnt get full potential by running less power either.

pick up a ~800 watt amp or so stable at 1 OHM. you also need to make sure your electrical is up to it at 1 ohm or else you will burn up the amp if the voltage dips too low.

to be on the safe side i'd get an amp stable at 1 ohm.

it MUST be 1 ohm stable or else it will clip out. and for power i would recommend a 750rms amp.

The amp that he recommended is discontinued. the replacement is not 1ohm stable.

For a 3 sub setup those subs are not the best choice (IMO). you can get subs that are meant to be ran in 3's that can do either 4 or 2 ohms. with 2 or 4 ohm load you will have endless choices for amps.
