    Are you stuck on buying a 2-channel.....i was thinking you should probably get a monoblock(something like a viper 1200.1)

    I wouldnt mind getting a Tarantula. Rather pricey for my taste

    Re: Which amp would you choose?

    those soundstream amps are very nice... but they are class AB .... which means that it could eat your electrical system faster than a class D amp

    I was planning on getting a Van Gogh 1600.2 amp and decided against it for this reason alone.

    Go with the Tarantula. It may be a class A/B amp but but then if you ever needed it to drive something else besides subs you could do so. Nothing wrong with versatility. A class D mono block is anything but versatile.
