    Amp advice

    Currently I have a Hifionics bxi2610D amp that says it puts out 2600 watts rms. My sub is a pioneer premier TS-W8102SPL which i have wired down to 1 ohm. The Hifionics amp just isn't pushing the sub as well as I had hoped so I was looking into the Crescendo BC3500D amp. It fits my budget and I was wanting to know if it would be a lot better than the Hifionics amp or if there is another brand that would be better for the same price. I have upgraded electrical system with a 250 amp alternator and have two Kinetik HC1800 batteries so I know the power to the amp is good just that the amp isn't putting out the power that is needed. Thanks for your help.

    Audiopipe APK-4500 4500W Mono D Amplifier : APK4500 : VMInnovations.com

    for the same price you can get a apk which is an amazign amp built in korea, typical zenon board, very stout and identical to the american bass vlf series vlf 450.1
    NEW American Bass VFL 450.1 AMP 4300 Watts Class D Mono Amplifier HUGE BASS !!! | eBay

    i would get it over the crescendo and audiopipe is amazing with warranties

    Audiopipe APK-3500 3500W Mono D Amplifier : APK3500 : VMInnovations.com
    the 3500rms board, they are both zenon boards built same place sundown, american bass, atomic, etc are built

    This...that Audiopipe is rated for 3500w MAX. The other two are rated RMS

    kinda like comparing a Ford Mustang GT to a Mustang 500GT..they both come from the same build house, pop the hood and you will see they both have V-8's, but mash the gas and they are 2 completely different animals..

    Re: Amp advice

    nah, the AP website and VMI, both specifically state the power ratings for the APK's as MAX power output ratings..I don't care to own one, to me they are much like anything else that only give MAX power ratings and not rms ratings.
