    I need help choosing an amp

    I need to know what would be the best amp to powere 2 audiobahn aw1006q's. I want to run them each at 900 watts and bass is more important than anything else. I saw some cheap amps on ebay like a boss powerdrive 4000 watt amp for $329. Can you run an amp at its peak power for long periods of time. Pleas help.

    better audio makes a nice amp that you may like

    www.betteraudio.com

    It's 1580 watts RMS -
    has 18dB/octave built in Xovers (and a trick little HP slave RCA output)..
    Has 24dB/octave variable subsonic filter...
    And more protections (including clipping) than you can shake a stick at

    How well would the Better Audio amp handle a .8 ohm load? Would it be too low and overdrive it? It wouldn't be for extremely long periods of time. Also..what's the current draw on that amp?
