    Please help me pick an amp for a 12" SSA DCON. Audiopipe, MB Quart, Hifonics, or ????

    Going to be purchasing a 12" SSA DCON subwoofer here shortly, but need to pick an amp first since I'm not sure if I'll need to get the SVC 4ohm or DVC 4ohm. The sub calls for 300watts RMS, but I hear can handle up to 400. I'm looking for the best budget amp that will put out clean rated power at 2 or 4ohms. I've found these...please give me your opinions and suggest any others

    $160 MB Quart ONX1.1000D - 475watts @ 4ohm RMS(Too much RMS?)
    $112 Audiopipe APSM-1300 Mono MINI Car Amp - 300watts @ 4ohm RMS(Mini safe?)
    $137 Audiopipe AP10001D - 300watts @ 4ohm RMS
    $150 Hifonics HFI1000D - 500watts @ 4ohm RMS(Too much RMS?)
    $138 ROCKFORD FOSGATE R500 Prime - 320watts @ 4ohm RMS
    $140 ROCKFORD FOSGATE P300-1 PUNCH - 300watts @ 2ohm RMS
    $150 ALPINE MRP-M500 - 300watts @ 4ohm
    $110 INFINITY 311A - 312watts @ 2ohm
    $120 JBL GT5-A3011 - 300watts @ 2ohm
    ANY OTHER GOOD AMPS?

    dont worry about too much RMS, as you can just leave the gain turned down and power a 100watt speaker

    If you ever think you may want more bass in the future, get the larger amp(and run at 4 or 2 ohm, so later you could get another same sub and wire to 2 or 1 ohm), which gives you flexibility for later on. Also it will have an easier life and live longer

    I think the MB quart are good

    Ap15001 might be a little overkill though it allows for plenty of room for growth. I would say mb quart or audiopipe

    since u r getting a sq sub, id suggest a nice class a/b amp, these have amazing clarity and bass response, the z7000 is one of my favorite amps of all time.
    these will work beautifully

    dual 4

    if u dont ever plan on upgrading a nice 2 channel i would get
