    That's what I'm thinking, plus those cactus amps are tanks.

    Re: What would you run?

    I voted for the Cactus because of course it makes things easier running 1 amp compared to 2. Plus I like to be different and run equipment you don't see everyday. That's the reasoning for my vote.

    Re: What would you run?

    Id run 2 amps..Generate more continuious power, and the amps will run cooler also..just my opinion, and you already have one,and know how well it operates,and does not.

    Re: What would you run?

    If I get a second AQ2200 for 300 I'll have around $560 invested into my amps. Just a quick search shows the K5's go for around $700 shipped or so. The AQ's will probably put out more power because they are starting at a lower impedance, but these 12's can only handle around 1000w daily before you start pushing them too much (at least how I use my subs lol). The K5 is a good bit more expensive but it's a much higher quality amp imo which is why I was considering it in the first place. I won't be getting anywhere near 5k out of the amp cause I'll be starting at 1 ohm nominal and it will also be a 12v system, I expect 3500-4000w out of the amp which will still be plenty. Plus I hear they are about as efficient as a DC 5k or a VFL500.1 so that's nice to hear they aren't huge power hogs.
