I am not gonna be running it at 1500W RMS, I am gonna be running about 900W rms.  As well, I do not plan on running that much all the time, but when I want to I can.  The advantage of the bass control knob :-)

ahhh the good old distortion knob, i mean the gain knob, I mean that same thing!    I hate these stupid things.   I would run it at what the sub can handle and use yoru head unit to adjust the bass using the sub control on your head unit, if your has it.

yeah, good call on that one! the HU will have it, not sure exactly which one i am getting, but i know it will be an uper end alpine, as I have had great experiences with them in the past. They give you a lot of control.

I don't know how all of the bass control knobs, the kind that extend via phone wire from the amp up to the cabin, work....but the one I have with the USacoustics is an attenuator only.  It'll lower the bass, but won't affect gain.

I personally think that would be a killer system for what you are paying. Plus it looks like it could leave a bunch of doors open in the future. Like if you wanted to make you system louder, you could just add one more xtant sub and it would then be running your amp at 1 ohm and you would be getting all 1500RMS out of that amp. or if you are big into sound quality that is what you will be getting. running that amp at 2 ohms will be decent for sound quality and that xtant is Amazing for sound quality. I would say you did some nice picking for your sub amp and the sub. I would say go for the extra 30 watts a channel and get the zx6400, it is worth it for $40. unless you are really strapped for money. Also yeah get a nice 150 amp alternator and a good battery and you should be set.
