    3k or 3.5k amp suggestion

    Hey guys a buddy of mine is looking for a 3k or 3.5k amp at 1 ohm that does rated rms, he is limited on budget, so can't really afford the mainstream brands like DC, sundown, cresendo etc.

    His budget is around $400, dont know it its possible to get a 3k for that price, so I am throwing it out here to hear your opinions, he is interested in new and used.

    Does he have electrical to run that? If not he's throwing money away on an amp that big.
