Your amp will not be running at 2 ohms. The L5s are all dual voice coil subs. This means your sub is either wired at 4ohms (which would be good) or 1 ohm (which would be really bad lol) If the sub is wired at 4ohms then the amp is a pretty good match. Amp will be putting out 500wrms and the sub can handle 600wrms.

Oh ok. I thought you meant the sub was a dvc 2ohm sub. I'd be wary about running that amp at 2ohm. Some amps can run lower than their rated impedence but sometimes it's a crap shoot. Can you take the amp back and exchange it or get your money back? You have a warning inside the box that says do not run this amp at 2ohm. Should be pretty cut and dry for you having a case saying that you were misinformed by the sales associate.

I say forget circuit city alltogether. lol. I just looked online and they don't have an amp that would be good for that sub for less than $400, unless they have different stuff in the store. Let me know what you do. I can help pick an amp out for you no problem if you go with something different.

Let me know. I can find you something online no problem at all. I actually just bought an amp from crutchfield that 500wrms x 1 at 2ohm for $90. We can find you something for that same price or less that will be a better match no problem.

The amp I got was made by Blaupunkt. I got a scratch and dent and it came to $90 shipped. It has the same 1 year warrenty as a brand new one too. I'm hooking it up to a 12L5 in a ported box in my dad's Yukon hopefully tomorrow. I can let you know how it does once it's in if you want.
