    Memphis is vastly better than Hifonics. Are the T1s dual 4s?

    Re: not sure what amp to buy

    So you need 1200 rms at either 1ohm or 4ohm. Neither of those amps really fit the bill. An MB Quart 1500d would however. Its about 200$ and is better than the Hifonics, and closer to Memphis then some would expect

    Re: not sure what amp to buy

    hm well that *****, that memphis is real cool looking. So it would be a bad idea to wire to 2 ohm? if its a real bad idea, where can i get one of those MB Quart 1500d's? iv never heard of the brand

    You cant wire those subs to 2ohm. Either 4 for series, or 1 for paralell.

    And MBQuart is a solid brand.MB Quart DSC-1500.1D (dsc15001d) - Mono Subwoofer Amps - Sonic Electronix
    i believe it can be found a little cheaper tho if u look

    Re: not sure what amp to buy

    some info since you were considering Hifonics...MBQ is from the same parent company as Hifoncs (Maxxsonics), and MBQ is the best line from Maxxsonics

    Re: not sure what amp to buy

    oh well i know the subs are wired 1 ohm already, they were pushed by a rf 1000db before i bought them. so looks like thats what i need to go for is 1 ohm. is 1 ohm good for daily use?

    Sure. 4ohm would be optimal, but its harder to find that type of power at 4ohm.

    However, you are going to need good electrical. I suggest at least quality 4 or 2ga power and ground, as well as Big 3 upgrade (its fairly easy, there is a sticky in the electrical forum)

    Sae 1200d, AQ1200d, Audiopipe 1500d (budget), Fosgate 1000.1bd is actually an optimal match for those as well

    Caps are useless. Big 3 can be done for about 30$, and is better than a cap
