    need help with choosing an amp

    i have one infinity kappa perfect 12d VQ (dual voice coil) sub and i was wondering what my best bet for powering it would be:

    specs:
    rms: 75-400 watts
    peak: 1600 watts
    impedance: dual 4ohms

    any help is greatly appreciated, thanks

    Panasonic

    http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...-PAD1003U.html

    - with servo technology, 700 watts RMS into 2 ohms... I have seen them listed on ebay as low as $120. One of the best bang for the buck amps I have seen lately.

    If you really want to save bucks, profileusa.com - click "store" - they have a sub amp, biggest one on the page, I think it's the first one at the top of the page... 600 watts for $80.

    Guys - nice amps trying to get sold notwithstanding...


    Will the Perfect VQ take that much over rated wattage?
    I don't have any experience with them myself so I just don't know.
    The RMS rating is 400w...not 7 or 800

    Re: need help with choosing an amp

    from all the reviews ive read its said the sub can take more than the peak power and rms... would this amp be sufficient?:

    Wanna know what I think?
    I think, since it is included in the opening post, that this sub is a DVC 4 Ohm model.

    Never try to send more than 1,600w to that sub. Or if you do get it on video and let us see it at least...
