    ...and why do you want to go with a 4 ohm load???? Go with a 1 ohm load... getting the same power at a 1 ohm load compared with a 4 ohm load is 99% of the time cheaper... Audioque 1200d comes to mind real quick....

    and if you want to sell the TXA cheap, hit me up.

    Re: amp for ssa icon

    i wanna do 4 ohms cause the cadence im pretty sure doesnt give me 1000W more like in the 800-900 range, and if i get a new amp now, might as well get one for later on in case i want to upgrade if that makes any sense.

    i would just run the cadence at 1 ohm and see how it is before replacing it.

    So... You're saying you want an amp that does 1000 at 4 ohms, but at 1 ohm is even higher?? Say, 3000 @ 1 ohm but 1000 @ 4 so that if you want to upgrade in the future you can just move down to a 1 ohm load??

    In my opinion, upgrade later when you actually need to.. the cadence will be fine on the icon.

    yes exactly. i think that's what i'll end up doing since the gas prices right now are killer and need to save as much money up for that as possible ha.

    Ah, ok. I would suggest going along with the above mentioned ideas. It would be cheaper to run the Cadence or find another 1ohm stable amp in the 750-1000 watt range.
