    I would go with an audiobahn if you have the money....they make a good product but expensive. I think PG make better accessories such as wires then they do amps.



    true i got more fans than the average man, but not enough loot to last me till the end of the week I live by the beat like you live check to check, if you don't move your feet then i don't eat so we like neck to neck, we done come a long way like dem slimn' cigarettes...from virginia....we ani't gonna stop, we just gonna continuna.....

    now everyday i look up at the ceilin, watchn ceilin fans go 'round tryn to catch that feeln of instrumental...

    the pg would be my first choice as well, then i'd say the fosgate, and then the mtx. i like pg's amps in every aspects, i love fosgates power as well as mtx's, but mtx's thd is a bit on the high side... 2% normally isn't ideal, but if its gonna be runnign subs, u'll be fine... now if ur looking for bang for the buck, toss the fosgate out the window
