Which Kenwood do you have? Cause when I last checked Kenwood didn't make any amp that put out 1000 watts rms. And how do you have your subs wired? Series or parallel? If you haven't had any trouble out of your subs at this point, more than likely you wont.
The GNX128's have a peak power rating of 400 Watts. With this combination I would suggest using a sealed enclosure that has a internal volume of .88 cubic feet per woofer. Wire the subs in a parallel configuration to achieve a 4 Ohm load. Set the low pass crossover to 80 Hertz and allow 40 hour of playing music at a
reasonable level to let the drivers' suspension "break-in".
when listening at higher volume levels, set the bass to a neutral or even a negative position, and turn off the "loudness" contour.
This will help prevent clipping and distortion. If you have any questions, give us a call at 800-377-7655 between the hours of 9 AM to 6 PM Eastern time and we will be glad to help.

I reiterate, Kenwood does not make an amp that puts out over 1000 watts rms. That "Performance Series" KAC-PS400M of yours is a 600 watt rms amp @ 2 ohms. That maximum power output that they state at 1200 watts is nothing more that a sales gimic, and isn't usefull for comparison purposes.
