    need help picking amp

    ive decided to go back to my 2 L7s. but this time instead of like 1400w to them, i wanna give like 1700-2000w. i been talking to a few people. i got some1 suggesting the cadence z7000. and some1 suggesting usamps merlin md2. ok the guy who suggested the cadence said hed sell me 1 for 460 shipped and he seen 1 benched at high 12V doing like 1700-1800w. i did a little research on both and found a lot of info that says that the cadence amp not only wont put out more than 1500w, but its also not worth more than ~$300. i asked the guy about this, he said it was about the old z7000. and as for the merlin, i couldnt find hardly any freaking info on it. i can get the merlin for $580. so what do you guys think?

    which 1 should i choose? or suggest me another high end amp that'll put out 1700-2000w. thanx

    Do some reading about the sx, I have not really checked on the numbers etc but i did use the kx before and there is so much more power out of this sx compared to it. I am off to bed but just figured I want to sell it and you are using kickers anyways lol. And the price is great 400 plus ship

    I just thought kicker benched at 12 and if this is doing almost 1500 at 12 its got to have good numbers with more power

    Re: need help picking amp

    well you said 1400, and you never said a V. see my kx did 1400 at 13.8

    so yeah, sounds like an sx is a better amp, but i still want like 1700-2000w
