    What's a good Amp?

    As of right now I want to upgrade my mono class d amplifier to something a little better, so I was wondering what you guys recommend for a 1,200 watt plus 1 ohm stable amp for around 300 bucks. Your guys' thoughts and recommendations would really be appreciated! I'll take any opinions.

    Do you want new or will you consider used?

    Re: What's a good Amp?

    Right now I have an alpine MRX-M100 which would normally be good enough considering it run 1k watts 2 ohm, but I didn't know what I was doing at the time so I bought a pair of DVC 4 ohm subs...

    ---------- Post added at 09:20 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:19 PM ----------

    Depends on what it is, i am interested though. Just so you know I don't have the money right now, but will soon.

    Re: What's a good Amp?

    I dont have one for sale myself, but it makes it easier. There are good ones that come up all the time in the classifieds and could even save you money. There is a saz1500d for 300 shipped in there right now. It would put out a bit more than 1500 watts, but the gains could be adjusted depending on which subs you have

    So do you guys think the AQ 1200d would be any good? It looks pretty much perfect for my situation...

    They are good amps. Not a lot of options that are new in that price range.
