    Amps comparable to an AQ Q1-1200D?

    Im thinking about getting an AQ Q1-1200D to power a pair of SA-12s. Any other amps around this price that I should take a look at? Will probably be buying used, but not for a while. Don't have the money just yet. Just trying to get the research done before I buy. Thanks guys.

    Those SA-12s will easily take more than their RMS rating, you could get a bigger amp if you wanted.

    But here's some amps you should look out for, you could get any of them for a decent price used if you got lucky

    SAZ 1200D
    American Bass VFL 100.1
    Crescendo BC2000D (2250 RMS but reasonably priced)

    Maybe even a used ZX series Kicker amp, sometimes you can find them cheap, just not as often as the others.



    And I know lots of people criticize them, but the BRZ1200/1700 or Audiopipe APSM 1500 are good amps and are affordable new.

    I wouldn't go so far as to call them "good." HifI is like fucking a cute fat chick. Sure, you'll get your nut, but you don't want her around on a daily basis.

    AP is a clingy, crazy, ugly fat chick in that analogy.

    The other amps you suggested are good though. Another amp to consider is the B2 Audio "quota." It's 1200@1 for $250. I clamped 1,800w rising to 1ohm out of mine.

    @Jayzbent ; @dbeez ;

    I just took a look at the b2 website. They sell a sub that can handle 15kw? This must be peak, right?

    That's cray. I cant wait to get a job. Then I'll actually be able to buy stuff. Haha. Not that I'd buy that sub, but just in general. I'm stuck dreaming and researching right now.
