Finishing up replacing of all amps, last left is the sub amps. I have 2 12w6v2's, would a 1200/1 or 2 750/1's be better? I kind of like the idea of being able to run just one sub at certain times.

2 of the 750's would be better.

I had a 12w6 and I was putting 600 watts to it and it was just ok...put 1000 watts to it and it has come alive!!!!!!

Here is the way I would look at it. If I had two amplifiers with the identical footprint plus identical heatsink mass but one amplifier had a large percentage of more power then I would assume that the thermal capability would be different. I would not be concerned in the air conditioned cabin or cargo area of a motor vehicle. However, I suspect you would running double 12s because you want to hammer, and a boat on summer days is a different challenge.

Strictly regulated power can be more robust than unregulated power. Given that the amplifiers are strictly regulated either power option would likely be enough power. But again, I would be more focused on the thermal issue and that is why I would lean toward the two chassis route.
