    Need a new Amp for my 18 asap!

    so as of now i have a cadence dakota...2400 max, (supposedly 1200 rms) amp on my fi q 18 (dual 2 ohm)... basically it does nothing for the sub at all. and the amp will get hot as eff and then shut off. to even get the amp to do anything i have to crank the gain near all the way up and the bass boosts up..otherwise..u can barely tell the sub is even back there. so now the shop i go to says i can trade it for a hifonics brutus 1200 or an autotek 4000 maxx (both maxxsonics)...he also sells other cadence, powerbass and such...so my question is...should i switch it for the brutus or the autotek? or is 1200 watts simply not enough for this sub? i have adequate power... 800 amp batcap right next to the amp. sooooo HELP PlEASE!

    something tells me you have the wiring messed up. also, don't touch the bass boost, it's only hurting the sub
