Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Default Friends New Subs... Looking for a BIG amp for cheap (ish)

Well my buddy (BlackBetty) and I went and picked up his new subs today... 2 12" Pioneer Premier Champion Pro'* in about a 4.25 cu ft ported box tuned to 40hz...

We r doing his audio install now on his 2010 Impala, had problems putting his HU in... all went smoothly, HU tunred on, had sound but would not shut off, so i used a DMM to find the switched wire, found it but still having issues.

back on topic... each sub is 1000w rms, 3000w max. dual 4 ohm. the guy he bought em from was giving em 2200w rms by a AudioQue 2200.

Now he is in the market for a reasably prices (about $400 or less) big, 1 ohm stable amp. Maybe something along the lines of a MA Audio HK4000D, or HK802sx...
was looking at the Hifonics amps but i dont like em much... ive had em and so has about everyone else and they just dont last, especially at 1 ohm.

Any ideas for a reliable, 1 ohm stable, 2000w rms or higher at 1 ohm (or even better at 4 ohm) cool running amp?

MonteLS? any ideas?

I like the "all went smoothly....had problems" line, classic! That line made me lose my train of thought

Thanks for helping me pick out the ma-hk2000d (raptor660) I think it will be a great amp to push those subs!
