    best sub amp for $300 or under

    i have an re se/x 15" dual 4 ohm voice coil and a t8002 right now. i can sell my amp right now for $300 and was wondering what would be the best option for me. it just seems like im running out of power for the sub. the sub doesnt seem to max out so im thinkin more power is needed. i would like more power than needed if possible and will set gains accordingly. just thought i would ask to see what all of you recommend. thanks

    edit: andy of these any good???

    im thinkin the alpine is the best but no bass remote and not sure. i want raw rms power and at 2 ohms.

    MB Quart Discus series amplifiers are good for the money.

    Speaking of which, here it is for $55 less than woofersetc's price: http://cgi.ebay.com/MB-QUART-DSC2000...QQcmdZViewItem

    Mb quart should do the most power. It is a solid amp

    Re: best sub amp for $300 or under

    i was also looking at the ap3000 audiopipe and im leaning more towards that amp than any of the above. should be around 2000w x 1@2 ohms or near there. my sub is only 600rms but it can take way more than that. and after imp rise and not a full 14.4 volts it should be 1200 to 1500 i would think at least. therefore would be enough to max the sub out at its full potential.

    You could also look into the Clarion DPX series amplifiers. They aren't bad, and Crutchfield (of all places) offers them for a great price.

    those AudioPipe amps seem to be the bang for your buck leaders right now.

    But def. be easy on the gain if you are putting the 3000d on the SE

    Correct. Also note I never recommend the garbage Soundstream lines. That Picasso amp he posted it garbage in my book.

    trigger is selling a nice amp for like 175 shipped in classifieds. I think a kole q-3000d that'll do like 1500wrms@2ohm or something like that. find it and buy

    Re: best sub amp for $300 or under

    i think you going to put too much power on that SE... i wouldn do more than 1000rms... be careful.

    kicker zx750.1 would suit it great

    Re: best sub amp for $300 or under

    i have more power than the 750 kicker and its not maxing out. my amp is putting out max power of 1000-1200 at its peak and suppose to be 800rms. i added a battery and have 0/1 gauge and my lights hardly dim at all. usually only after a long period of time of full tilt. i dont do comps as around here they stopped doing them i just listen to music mostly rap. i would like to have more power to test its limits and get closer to max excursion of the sub. what i said in my post above was wrong i forgot the audiopipe ap3000 is 2 ohm stable. so i would have to be careful but im aware of this. and then theres always the option of a bigger and better 15" sub and i would have the power for it.

    If that DPX11551 is anything like the DPX1851 that I am running, that has to be the best 2 ohm bang for the buck amp right now, especially if you can get the $20 Crutchfield coupon code.

    You do know that at 2ohm bridged, is where this amp makes 3000watts right. At 1ohm is is only 1500w X2.......2ohm is 3000w X1

    6K RMS watts using 2 AudioPipe AP3001d's / 4 18" AQ HDC3's / DC Power Dual alt setup / 3 Deka 9A31H's AGM / MLA 15.4v dual alt module / etc........
