So what you'll need to do is find an amp that puts out rated power at 1 ohm. That has a 1000 watt RMS, which means your amp selection is enormous. I've always liked Crossfire, but Kicker has a 1000 watt @ 1 ohm amp, memphis, Orion, Rockford, phoenix gold, mtx, everybody.

Or get a second sub:)

If you want the max out of any amp it needs power. A second battery would help after you get a new sub/amp to get your load right. A larger alternator will help more than the battery. More lights dimming = less power from the amp. A little lights dimming the cap might help some, lots of dimming and it can't make up for lack of power.

Also front speakers kind of dictate the SQ of your system, good ones will help a lot. They also need to be on an amp not the HU (if you don't have one), even a 2x50rms you can pick up used for $30 would be much better (an older quality name amp). I just saw an older mtx go for under 25 that looked nice.
