    need good CLEAN, accurate, SQ amp to run 2 IDQ 10" subs

    I believe the 10" IdQ's do about 250 -300 Wrms.

    preferabbly with a price range around 300-400 bucks.

    thanks for the info jmac

    you think I should run a mono amp to run the two 10" IDQ's or should I run a 2 channel amp?

    what are the benefits?

    As for mono versus 2-channel, it really doesn't matter since you should bridge the 2-channel amplifier for subwoofers anyways.
    I haven't ordered the IDQ's yet but I'm probably gonna get the dvc at 4 ohm. That way I can use a amp at a 2 ohm load.

    why can't I just run it in 2 channel mode if I have 2 channels already?

    probably getting 2 10"s.

    I'd like to get a single 12" to save space but affraid that one 12" in a sealed enclosure won't give me the power I need.

    what u think?

    yo dude you wanna have 2dvc subs wire to 2ohm mono you need dual 2ohm subs not dual 4ohm subs. dual4's will get you a 4ohm mono, 16ohm, or 1ohm load for a pair of them. dual 2's will get you a 2ohm mono load in which case i have heard that setup with a zapco 360 and also with a Memphis 500/1 both fantastic amps.

    If you could find them on the net, the Planet Audio Tube Amps would give you killer SQ for not too much money, they were on sale recently some where

    yeah you can power em with 600rms and be fine. another suggestion not to be a **** but get your own thread next time some people don't like it when other's do what you did no offense. oh and there is talk of a 16" IDMAX anyone know if it's true??

    I hae not heard about a posibile 16"er, but the sub freaks like me will remember that Audiomoile makes a 16"er sub called the M16, but it has not really taken of due to the price and lack of testing or exposure
