    Which amp to run one IDQ 12" dual 4 ohm and one pair of speakers?

    Hey all, I just bought an Image Dynamics IDQ 12" dual 4 ohms sub and I need an amp to push it. I am going to run a pair of front speakers (Pioneer TS-A6870R 3-Way Speakers) and one sub off the amp. I have $230 to spend so some recommendations would be great.

    Thanks.

    not too many 4-cahnnels can handle 2 ohms bridged. i say look into an orion 8004 or pg xenon 200.4

    the pg can handle 1 ohm loads i believe so it should be stable too 2 ohms bridged. orion's have always been noted to be able to handle low impedences

    Ive been recommended the Kicker KX550.3 amp from two different people. Anyone know of this amp's quality?

    Thanks.

    I just found the Xtant for $265 shipped on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/Xtant-603X-not-F...QQcmdZViewItem) but it seems that the amp is rated lower than the Kicker (300 watts to the sub from Xtant while its 420 to the sub from the Kicker).

    Well I can get it for $260 from cardomain since they price-matched it.

    Will the Kicker run enough power to the IDQ sub?

    400 watts rms min. kicker amps are underrated

    So you think that 400 watts RMS into the sub is enough to "make it bump?"
