    Are you fixed on the Fubar? Because there is little info out there about that PA sub...I do believe that its power handling is actually overrated so more like 500-600rms. IMO

    If that sub is what you must have, what is your budget for an amplifier?

    Well are you looking for SQ or SPL...or maybe a mix of both?

    Well you would be better off with the Type-Rs IMO
