Talk about a wide open question! Get an Eclipse DA7122, it will put out an honest 1,000 watts into a 2ohm load with 10.8v of input:) Of course it retails for close to $1000 though.

Seriously though it depends on how much you have to spend and what you expect from an amplifier. The Best Buy stuff might suit you just fine, meaning cheap Rockford Fosgate.

GOOD CALL on the eclipse 7122, that thing is BAD.

i wouldnt buy audiobahns.

if you are getting a steal on them, then you might want to look into MTX amps, alot of power for dollar.

It is BAD, too bad their max rating is at 2ohm. I was going to buy it's big brother but I realized that I'd have to compete with the guys using 20 15" woofers and 16k watts.

Personally I use a Diamond D5 1200.1 for my subs in the Avalanche.

Noone listens to me but the old Kicker ZR360 is a badass freakin amp. Check this link for some smoking deals on one. It puts out an honest 700 watts!

I agree MTX has some nice size amps for the money. Audiobahn is okay but not the best out there.

My Talon hit 148.8 db with 2 brand new 12s using a ZR360:) It should be over 150 now with them broken in.

i havent laid hands on the 7232 but it is basically two of the 7122's in one housing, so i can imagine that it would power a small city.

if you have 1000 real watts, i would go with something like the eclipse aluminums, they sound great, and can hit very hard.

for a lower cost solution, you could always go with MTX8000's, just buy whatever extended warranty if any is offered.

they hit, but over time, when REALLY worked will blow the dust caps off.

Thats not gunna be a real 1000 watt amp you know that right? Hell if I was you Circuit City is selling MTX amps cheap as hell right now. They have some powerful amps. And right now the price is awesome on them.

if it is a year or two old, then it might very well produce its stated power.


dont discount fosgate, they (until recently) made good product.
i can think of a few companies that are following the bling > quality route.

I have a rockford fosgate power bd1001 powering two solobaric15l5's. Can't go wrong with fosgate if you get the right amp, I haven't heard nething louder than mine in a while.

I am partial to the JL amps. They can be picked up used for good prices and make a lot of power. Kicker are very nice ones too.

No idea, I didn't ask. I just noticed there was only one in the display.
