    Best amp to power 2 Memphis Power Reference 12's?

    on a 900 dollar budget for a system and it seems like i need to include more and more stuff every day...looking for the best possible amp i can get new for around $300

    I've been looking at SoundStream but if there's a better brand for the money i'd be willing to consider it

    There is no real best, it boils down to preference and budget. Depending which soundstream they arent bad.

    WoofersEtc.com - TX1.1300D - Soundstream 1300W RMS Tarantula Series Class D Monoblock Amplifier

    My concern is with the wattage and how it's divided between the 2 subs...how much is enough, how much is too much, and how efficient the amp is.
    I'm not really educated enough about car audio to know exactly what i'm looking at with amps

    Re: Best amp to power 2 Memphis Power Reference 12's?

    no not yet...still trying to put a system together for less than $900...2 12s, an amp, enclosure, wiring, and installation. I want to find the cleanest bass i can for that price..don't really care about blowing out my eardrums but want some decent bang on them

    I have an '09 Saturn Aura XR, already has an 8 speaker sound system with 6 Cd changer and ipod hookup so i'm not trying to change the head unit or other speakers. trunk opening is 41" wide, trunk is 42x42 and 17.5" high

    Re: Best amp to power 2 Memphis Power Reference 12's?

    One of the best car audio shops in the country is about 15 minutes from my house...they've done systems for some of the Pistons and Lions players. they have a tent sale on the first weekend in June every year...i'm thinking i'm gonna go there with all my money and see what i can get..but i wanna know about everything out there and get opinions on all the brands before I go so i can know what i'm buying. But in case i don't find anything, i'm trying to put something together so i'll be ready to get a system by then haha.
