    Looking for new sub amp

    I am currently running four alpine type R 12's dual four ohm. So Im lookijng to go with a single sub amp Ever since I blew my orion 250 (Had 2 on 4 12w6's) I just dont want the hassle of strapping two amps unless I have to.

    Well looking cost effectively I am at the point of REALLY looking to get some power in there. The choices as I have narrowed them are below.

    2 Soundstream Rubicon 1000's (Looking for the 10.0a classes if I can find them)
    1 Fosgate Power1500.1BD
    1 MTX 1501D
    2 Kicker ZR600's
    1 Kicker ZR1000's
    1 Hifonics Brutus 1500

    These are the choices Im kinda sitting at. Any ideas? Suggestions? My problem is the load comes out to
    1/2 ohm mono
    2ohm mono
    1ohm stereo
    4 ohm stereo

    Either or these or recommendations? Thanx/

    Re: Looking for new sub amp

    8+8=4
    8+8=4 so I would see an 8 ohm load or 2ohm mono

    2+2=4
    2+2=4 so I would see an 8 ohm load or 2ohm mono load
    Theres four woofers so thats where the problem comes in. With dual 4 ohms you get a jacked up config unless I go with two amps. I also have a line on a fosgate X7 but for 480 ( I have my own business liscence) I can get two soundstreams or brutus's. For $350 I could get the 1501.

    Re: Looking for new sub amp

    I would stick with a 2ohm load. Out of what you picked, I would go with the Hifonics. Have you checked out the new Cadence amps?
