Why is my subwoofer not hitting like it should?

I have dual rockford fosgate p2d4's in the custom rockford ported box, ran by an RE Audio dts 1000.1 watt monoblock class d amp. The subs are both dual voice coil and are rated at a peak of 1600 watts total as well as 800 total rms. The amp has a peak of 1600 watts and runs at 800 rms at 1 ohm. The website I bought the subs from said the subs were internally wired at a 1 ohm impedance. The subs and amp should match great right? My interior lights dim a lot when I play it and it the subs start to cut out. Could it be my battery? Please help me out I'm kind of a noob at this car audio stuff. Any suggestion helps. The car I have it in is a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix gt.

(Fingers crossed) in theory all should be well regarding matching the impedance of your amp and subs. There could be a number of issues here... More

I would check the ground for sure how high is your gain turned up? and is the amp bridged? also i would try a kentic HC800 its a great charge tank for the price you can pick one up for about $120 but well worth it also the big three upgrade is a very useful thing to do
