    I like my PG Tantrum 1200.1 (1507 watts) alot but it might not be enough watts for you. Just throwing it out there.

    read limit's review on the 1500D... its overrated at 4 and 2 ohms but for 1 ohm it is accurately rated putting out 1500 @ 1 ohm... so just run it like that, one for each should be alright...

    not many. Those PG amps are right on. Just make sure you adjust the ssf and everything accuratly. I put mine on my three 12s for a day and they could not handle all that power. Of course they are the old w3s (got them the first week they came out).

    Anything will sound good if u know what ur doing. Putting it at 1 ohm isnt going to do anything special as if you were to put it at 4 ohms. Only difference is the power going through the wire. So if u have a 2000x1@1ohm amp and its also stable for 1000x1@4ohms, all ur losing is the extra 1kw watts. If you have the money, buy a separte amp for each, put them at 1 ohm and you will wang like a mofo. The xxx sounds good no matter what. My future plans are 2 15 XXX's with 2 Orion 2500.1s.

    Meh? /ignore

    I'm starting to hate this, I really am. If one more person gets a Hifonics/XXX combo, 98% of the board will inherently be running it. Can any of you get something else. Please, for the love of god, get something else.
