    Which of these amps would you get and why?

    Wanting 1500-2000RMS at 2 ohms.

    I am considering:

    Hifonics BXI2607D
    Kicker 1500.1
    Fosgate T20001BD
    Memphis MCD-1500D
    ...or other

    Please state why you might suggest what you suggest. The money difference in these isn't a big issue.

    I have a pair of T2 fosgates, so I am leaning towards the T20001bd.

    Either the Memphis or the Kicker, both solid amps.
    Great quality.

    Yes, needs to be at 2 ohm.

    Any other comments or suggestions?

    Thanks. Are you saying that the T20001bd or BXI2607D are not capable of putting out 1500 to 2000W RMS at 2 ohms and are overrated? I have always experienced that fosgate amps are underrated by at least 10%. Is the power series the exception to the rule?

    Not considering cost --
    I'd say
    RF
    Memphis
    Kicker
    HF

    HF last just because I don't think it has the initial quality of the other 3.
    RF 1st because it's 1 ohm stable. At 2 ohms it shouldn't even break a sweat.
    Memphis/Kicker basically tied quality-wise IMO, but I think those MCD's are just sweet looking amps.

    The Rockford might do 1500+ wrms at 2 Ohms, depending on the birthsheet.

    But, all things considered, I'd probably go with the Kicker ZX.

    dont you think the z1 will put out a little more than he actually needs? i mean yeah you can set the gain but im pretty sure he doesnt want to spend a thousand dollars on a amp that he doesnt need all of its power or even a third of its power

    Re: Which of these amps would you get and why?

    Pretty sure that z1 and 6000gti are a bit out of my power range.

    I have eliminated the hifonics. Seems like there is no chance of the t20001bd not being at 1500W since they are average of 40% underrated. There is a 1500.1 here locally on CL. If I cannot get that at 250-300, then I think that I might go with the fosgate since it can go 1 ohm and has more power to spare. It is about $100 more that the others, but I don't care.
