    what amp should i get?

    Just got a pair of elemental designs e5.10s. They r supposedly 1000rms each. Dual 2 ohm so I need an amp 2000rms approx at 2ohms. Any suggestions?

    First, do you have the electrical to support an amp that big?

    But look for any 3.5kW RMS @1ohm amp. SAZ, DC, Crescendo, B2 Zero1. What's your budget?

    What amps do 2k @.5 safely, daily? Serious question. I thought most of the smaller amps (would be a 1.2k~1.5k @1ohm) had troubles handling under 1 daily.

    Well an AQ2200 at .5 is more than 2k @.5. The SAZ would be around 2k @.5 tho. Good to know.

    Yeah the AQ would be best IMO, if he's looking for something budget.

    OP, what is your budget? Have you done any electrical upgrades? Do you plan on upgrading in the future?

    I'm gonna get an ho alt and do all my upgrades about tax time. $400 is most I can spend. I've looked at the lanzar optis before. Will 1 of these push these and make them sound good?

    Does $400 include the HO alt or just for amp? Some alts are more than that themselves. And you may not need a bigger alt depending on what size yours is now and the total amps you will run.

    Which model Opti? But here is probably your best bet: AQ2200D Amplifier
