    looking for info sony xplod 800 watt or mtx thunder 2160

    both amps are rated around the same rms power about 3-400 range. any idea on what one is best? Im going to run 2 older 12's kicker comps I think they are around 2-300 rms ea. or 1 12" older audiobahn says 1000 watts so what 500 rms. thanks for any help

    definately the mtx. unless it is the 90's mobile es x-plode line, the x-plode is going to be real peaky/bubbly, making the sound quality poor.

    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    They are both rated about the same rms power output, but MTX have always been at least slightly underrated and the older ones are built far better. I bet if you did a comparison with each amp on those kicks in a nice custom box, the MTX would sound better. Are the kicks Single 4 ohm subs?
