    Need more power!

    I need a 1500 rms at 2 ohm amp. My zx1000.1 isn't going to cut it. I'm a firm believer in paying for clean power. So my options are a zx1500 or a rf t1500bdcp.
    Both are about the same $ about 500 shipped. Any other options out there.

    Powering 12 DC lvl 3 12s

    You're running 12 subs and only 1500 watts? Or did you mean to say 2 subs? Lol

    Re: Need more power!

    a aq 3500 can be had for around 5-550 shipped if you dont mind buying used, and will do a good bit more than 1500 @ 2 and will give you room to upgrade to better subs down the road with out buying a new amp.

    Better 07. same as the 08 other then the red line however better components. not sure why but kicker seems to make the amp cheaper and cheaper each year. still a great product but not the underrated monsters they used to be.

    here are some pics
