ok, so had some car trouble and now i only have enough cash to pick up an amp or subs. since i have 2 ID8's right now im going to get an amp and pick up subs later. i have decided that i want ~1200W @1 ohm and ~500@ 4 ohms. less than 1 ohm stable is always nice, but not needed in this case. the ID8's are rated at 300W RMS so the 500@ 4 ohms is more or less for daily listening. then i can toss them down to 1 ohm and gain apropriatly to push 600 or more to them when i feel like it. an amp of this power level gives me some room to upgrade to 10's in the future and still have some headroom. i also hate amps that cant do rated. since im going to be on stock electrical i will probobly be looking at ~12.9-13.5V, i hope to do the big 3 while im at it, but no garuntees. also i would really like an efficent amp, my trunk tends to get crowded and i would hate my amp to go into protect constantly because it gets hot.
so far i have been looking at the following amps:
MB onyx 1600D
i really like the AQ 1200, it looks nice, has good reviews, and overall seems to be beefy. but im trying to stay in the $200.00 range so i have a bit of cash left for install materials. any imput would be apreciated. specificly what amps do rated and last long.
