Default Which amp is better

I wanted to purchase an amp but i didnt know which one would be the best, so i was wondering out of these amps which would be the best to buy and they are Virtual Reality Sound Labs 5-Channel Car Amp VRA4.1 which has 900 watts of max power,Lightning Audio Bolt 4-Channel Car Amp B2.300.4 which has 900 watts of max power or the Rockford Lightning Audio LA1.300.2 Stereo Amplifier which has 900 watts of max power . I really dont know much about amps so thats why i turned here. I was wondering which one would be the best to purchase out of those three. I have 2-12" pioneer speakers which can handle 600 watts a piece and an pioneer 6500 dph radio/cd player.

Rockford is cool, i have some doubts about lightning audio, but i could be wrong.

Id go with the fosgate too. Your looking at the max power ratings for those amps. that doesnt really matter because it isnt a realistic estimate of what the amp can handle. Look for the rms rating

the rockford lightning audio is not the same as rockfostgate is it? And i also subscribe to another club at [url]tccoa.com for my other car(94 4.6l Cougar) and in the audio section they said that the lightning audio bolt is an good amp. I dont know what to think because they say its good but then you guys say its crap. I dont wanna go and spend $200 dollars on an amp that isnt worth it.

P.* Com stop by tccoa.com and go to the audio section and read my thread. My user name is 94cougar4.6.

Lol, sorry guy. We got you totally confused! Rocfordfosgate is one company, then lightning audio is another. Lightning audio is what you can pick up at walmart. their speakers are not bad, not the greatest, but their amps really do need some help. unless you plan on getting a small system then stay away from those amps. you will be happy you did in the long run

really i just wanted somethin that would bang out side of my trunk a little. I was gonna buy to of those amps and put one on each of my subs. I have 2 pioneers that can handle 600 watts and also an pioneer radio like the one TWISTER97 has in his bonneville. So would you guys think that-that will be ok for a little bang?
