    if its twice the price i would get the kicker. You won't hear the difference of 500 watts most likely. The zx1500.1 is a strong amp especially if ran at 1 ohm. I would suggest running it at 2 ohms though but its still good for 1700-1800 watts. The only thing is they are designed to play at different ohm loads. So if you need a 1 ohm amp get the dc, if you need a 2 ohm amp get the kicker. I do believe that at 1 ohm the kicker is stronger than the dc, have seen tests on the kicker at 1 ohm(around 2300 watts) but not sure how underrated the dc might be

    yeah i plan on buying one dc audio xl 15" rated for 1500 watts rms. I wanted to know if i could save myself a few bucks by getting the kicker amp without effecting the most performance for the sub

    I'm running my XL on 1500 and it seems to be a little more power hungry than that so I'd say either go with the DC 2k or an AQ2200d. the AQ is about 35 buck cheaper than the DC but I was told they use almost the same board.

    Those BRZs are pretty legit. I dont know about THD wise (I dont care much on mono amps honestly), but I think the BRZs definately do their power and then some

    Its hard to beat Kicker for the price and performance. Most ZX 1500.1's push 1600 to 1700 watts straight out of the box at 2 ohms. If the DC amp is double the price, then it should be a no brainer.

    dont thread jack, if you have a lagit question make your own thread for it.

    op. what VC config of the xl are your getting, if its the dual 1/.7 go with the kicker and have power at 2 ohms. if its dual 2/1.4 then get the dc and run it at or just under 1 ohm.
