    need a amp, advice in choosing

    previously i had a spl 1600w 2 channel amp powering 2 fusion power plant 12's, my friend just got rid of his MTX 12's and gave them to me. Im wondering what kind of amp i should get that will be able to power them both. my fusions are 450WRMS and the MTX's i believe are 300WRMS not sure for sure since they were my friends, im sure i can find out.

    thanks

    the fusions are 2 ohm and the mtxs are 4, i talked to a bestbuy guy today and i think im going to end up selling the fusions and get a amp just for the mtxs because its not worth having 4 mismatched subs, one set will always be underpowered

    Re: need a amp, advice in choosing

    if u want a cheap amp and money well spent at the same time i can honestly say some insignia amps are actually very good for 12's i have 2 2ohm 12" kickers with dual voice coils in a ported box the guy i got them from gave me an insignia ns-a1000 1000watt 2ch amp with them and it slammed but i have a 4 channel scosche efx hd6004 1000watt amp hooked up to them now the scosche amp wouldnt be something for a budget but the scosche amp seems to be way better quality and bass but i can tell you now an insignia 1000 watt amp should run them perfectly fine if you use the right power wire and get the right fuses i believe my power cord is a 4 gauge but im not sure all i know is it is like twice the size of an 8

    For $125, I've seen these amps rock some subs
