First Of Hi everyone Hows it going.

I Have a 1989 Mercedes 300ce

My Current Set Up is

-Alpine 9847 Deck

-Eclipse Speakers all Around

-Kenwood Kac-929 1000Watt Amp

-2 Mtx Thunder 5500 12s DVC

- the Box is a RiT Box And its Ported

Now heres where I need help. Is that amp any good For those subs? Or do i need a New Amp? If i need a New amp what Amp?

Secound, Is it just my battery or is something wired wrong, wen the cars off if i try to turn up the Music louder then 20 without subs or anything just speakers over 20 it over loads and resets, wen the cars on it never over loads..

Please Help

what exactly do you mean by it "overloads and resets?"
Your underpowering your subs quite a bit and you should look into a new amplifier that puts out around 600-700wrms. You could either wire your subs in parallel and find a nice 1ohm stable monoblock amp, or find a 2channel amp that puts out about 300-400 x2 @ 2ohms...

Blowing up in a car accident doesnt worry me, as long as I'm putting out some major dB's when I die...

How are your subs wired...?  AND, can your amp deliver (I'm thinking NOT) @ the given load?

Consider wiring like this...
