    AQ1200D says it pushes 2400@1ohm but really its underrated and pushes right around 3000. $270 x two
    (two 2200's would be more ideal, although $200-300 more as well)

    SAZ3000/Crescendo 3k's are around $550-650 i believe.

    You couldn't guess that I was talking about two aq1200's linked together, even with the price shown as $270 x two + "two 2200's are more ideal" on next line?? Yes you're right 1500 max realistic max numbers with 1 amp. Quit flaming, begone troll!

    Assuming you have the electrical to back up that kind of power you still won't get that much power out of any of those amps on music.
