Considering they're rated for 600wrms the Q1-1200D would be the amp I would look at in your situation.  In order to get a 1 ohm load for the 1200wrms output from the amp you'll need to order Dual 4 ohm subs and wire them like the diagram below.  

 

It's about impossible for us to give you the box measurements.  Unless someone who's on the forum reading this has used the exact same subs and amp in the exact same vehicle there's just no way.  The odds of that happening are pretty slim.  The SoundQubed website shows from 2.5cuft to 5cuft of NET enclosure space as being usable for their 12" subs.  What we need from you is the maximum dimensions you're willing to give up to the subwoofer enclosure in your vehicle.  Then we can help you figure out how much space you have available and can help you get an enclosure figured out.

 

 

 

 

This is how the subs should be wired when you're ready to hook things up.

2.2 net cubes per sub (HDS212) works very good in most applications. Our Q1200 amp works great on a pair wired to 1 ohm.

DJ is absolutely correct! Two HDS212's in 4.4^ft NET on a Q1-1200 will sound very good, not to mention slam!

What do you have to play them?

 

Or did you mean after you have all you stuff?

Really no such thing as breaking in a sub, yes the subwoofers soft parts loosen up over time. On some subs it takes longer then others. Play the sub within it's limits and enjoy my friend.

Ive just heard that you could like hook it up to a receiver and let them play to break them in. Or should i just wait till everything is hooked up and go low volume for a while

Low volume will take longer for the soft parts to loosen up, like I stated earlier there is no such thing as breaking in a subwoofer.

I hooked this hds210 to my amp and then adjusted the gain and ssf correctly.

 

I then played it as loud as I could with no distortion.

 

That's how I break subs in. 

 

Never had to baby it. Never burned one up yet and I have done a lot.

 

Not all songs are recorded the same, so you will have to use the volume knob on some tunes.

I break mine in slow and don't wire them to 1ohm tell around the 4 to 6 month range. Never had a problem and don't forget to hookup the bass nob for the clipping light.

      We have finally released our new amp.  It is a tiny tiny production run to see how people like them.  Meant for the high end, SQ market, without the European price tag.  If this model moves as well as I hope, it will help spawn another model in the line up soon.
      https://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/ssa-dm150-2-2-channel-amplifier-150w-x-2-ch-or-500w-x-1-ch/

      Introducing the all new SSA DM150.2 amplifier. An old school approach, with updated components, for the most discerning of ears. If your front stage is lacking warmth and clarity, its time to upgrade. Our first amplifier in our high-end, sound quality, Class- A/B - Demon amplifier line. The SSA DM150.2 is the elite choice for that high end active front stage, premium passive components, and especially a sound quality sub (SSA Demon). We've incorporated direct inputs for those competition installs that use an external DSP and want their amp to be a pure gain block. Stellar looks to match the design and components. Don't let your speakers or your ears down, #levelup to the all new SSA DM150.2 amplifier.

      I am working to expand our amplifier offerings, while staying high quality, somewhat unique, and affordable.
      First up looks like a class-A/B 6 channel.  No crossover network, individual gains, 150watts x 6, will keep footprint as small as possible for the design, similar appearance to the current models.  Feeling out interest as it will effect the total amps I put into production.
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      As a side note, I am considering a 2-channel of the same line, but the demand for 2 channels right now are so low.  Would not really want to build them if they are going to sit for a while.
       
      Just curious on any input before I get production going.

      A brief introduction to the all new SSA Demon, but first a farewell to its predecessor. 
           Our very long running SSA Dcon has ridden off into the sunset, or at least taking a breather.  The SSA Dcon was our second subwoofer model we ever launched.  At the very beginning, we had the Icon and as it gained traction we saw there was a need for a pure SQ sub of more modest power rating than that the Icon.  So in early 2008, the first SSA Dcon was launched.  (The Xcon followed shortly after).  That being said, the Dcon was almost an immediate hit, with a long 2" copper coil (rarity to have one made in the USA) triple stack motor, rear vent.  The Dcon was very affordable, well made, quite efficient, clean across the entire range, and flexible with enclosure demands.  It is interesting as there are some SSA Family members who swear by their Dcon and will not give it up ever.  (It even became a favorite of some of the home audio crowd).  All that being said, the Dcon evolved a bit for its second generation, we made a leap forward in motor force moving to what is best described as a scaled down Xcon motor, with a large single slug, solid pole, and deeply bumped back plate, while beefing up the suspension and leads.  We were able to bring the power handling up 33% while not hurting the sound that made the Dcon successful.  There was a stretch of a few years, before we ran out of stock, that the SSA Dcon 12 was our all time best selling subwoofer.  So its existence was very important to SSA.  Well with changes in the market (read:customer demands and amps getting much cheaper), as well as sky rocketing material costs, building the Dcon in the USA no longer was an option, so production stopped early 2017 for both the Dcon (and Gcon) and inventory ran out later that year. 
           Late last year, due to the long lay off with out the Dcon (and Gcon), we started development of an updated Dcon at a new build house.  The quality and performance of our SSA Evil1 tweeters were above our expectations, so we decided to send more production to that same build house.   As we saw that the market slowed overall for modest power rated subs due to power getting cheaper and people wanting higher power handling subs, so the market began to really start heating up in the 500 - 1200 watt range, I knew we needed to address it.  There is an 8" model developed, but it will not make it this first production run.  
           The new model had to handle more power and have more xmax while not sacrificing the balanced and clean sound the Dcon had established for nearly a decade.  That meant larger motor, larger coil, more suspension, larger leads, thicker cone, taller surround, etc.  In the end, all of the changes that happened to the over all design, we could no longer call it a Dcon.  In sticking with the theme of the Evil, a model name that has become so well known, while respecting the Dcon, the Demon name was selected.  The Demon is a great blend of the previous Dcon and Xcon, both in design and appearance.  In prototype testing, the SSA Demon thrived smaller to mid-sized ported and mid-sized sealed enclosures.
      Quick SSA Demon stats:
      2.5" copper coil Aluminum former Aluminum Shorting ring Solid pole, non-vented bumped back plate Large single slug motor Pressed pulp cone Tall roll surround Push terminals Dual Nomex progressive spiders Stitched tinsel leads Large dome dustcap I will list T/S specs and enclosure recommendations shortly.  We are very excited about the SSA Demon as it bringing back to our line up a pure sound quality subwoofer that will be affordable, while still having the characteristic SSA warmth and output.

      Hi, does anyone know the diameter on a soundqubed hdc3.110? Manufacturer doesn't list this, and I can't find it anywhere. I've got an odd shaped box I want to throw a pair in, but I need to make sure they'll fit first
