Looks good to me I would order it from here though, 3 year warranty instead of just 30 days

Kenwood KFC-W3514DVC 12" 1500W Dual 4-Ohm Subwoofer

i once had that amp, didn't like it very much on my kickers but that was then, its a good little amp for what it is but dont expect too much out of it, look over on caraudio.com in their classifieds

i had the amp on 2 cvr's i wanna say, and my jl w3 was louder off a pepboys dual 300 watt amp so i dont think it was the subs as much as the amp, but then again maybe i'm just used to my rd alpha v2 now lol
