    Icon14 What 1000w-1200w amp would you suggest?

    I have 2 12's in a custom ported 5 cu.ft. box tuned to 37hz that handle 550w rms/1100w peak.I have about $300.00 to spend on a amplifier to power them hopefully 1000-1200watts rms.my subs have a single 4 ohm voice coil.I need some suggestions on brands and also "true"rms power.Hey does anyone know if the lanzar heritage series,audiobahn(A4801T),Ma audio or jbl amps are any good?Thank you!

    Re: What 1000w-1200w amp would you suggest?

    I hear the Heritage series is over rated... And as for Audiobahn and MA Audio, stay away from them, they are low end. JBL is a great company and not low end at all, if you can find an amp with 1200w then go for it, I doubt you will find a JBL with that much power for that little price...

    I have a Planet Audio TT-1250D amplifier. It will do its rated power of 1250w @ 1 ohm. PM me if youre interested.

    you need an ampt to produce 1000 watts at 2 ohms so i would look into a used PG tantrum 1200.1 or RF 1001bd

    A used JBL 1200.1 will go for around $200 shipped

    I vote for a JBL 1200.1

    i agree wit the rf 1001bd. i got a 1500bd and i will never sell it. high effiency, under rated power amps right there, unlike most amps. rockford comes with a birth sheet that tells the true rms. wut other manufacturers do that?? wont go wrong wit a rockford amp

    Thats also two years old and many of the links no longer work. Plus there are many amps currently avaliable that arent on that list. But still worth a look...
