    Even with shipping being a little higher, I still believe you would be better off buying used on the forums.

    Between the two, the XD. The slash, as I've heard, are a little more power-hungry. I did manage to run a 300/4 and 500/1 on stock electrical and 4ga in my 04 Ion Redline, though, so I guess YMMV.

    For the price, you can do better even including shipping. @trumpet ; has a good deal right now on PPI Phantom 1000.1s for under MAP until supplies last and it'll put you under 200 shipped IIRC.

    Shipping to Canada is going to cost roughly double the shipping within the Continental US, maybe even more as rates are raised every year. Thanks for the mentions.

    Re: jl amps

    I have a really nice zapco 1100m that is the same as the ref 1100.1 just like the model before. I could check on shipping but I think that I could get it to you for 300 shipped. It retailed for like $1100 new. Just a thought. I can text you pics if you would like. My number is 5153607069. I used a jl 500/1 and a 1000/1 before this one and I think that this one sounded way better than both of them plus seemed more powerful than the 1000/1. Let me know if you have any questions. It's in very very good shape. I just took it out because I replaced it with new zapco z150.4 and zx200.4 amps for my 4 way active.

    Re: jl amps

    If your going for sq, id start by selling that sub and getting something else. You running sealed or ported?

    And as for those two amps are we talking the JX 500/1 or the actual slash series?

    Re: jl amps

    its a jl 500/1 slash amp new. too expensive I think. the sub is in a sealed enclosure. I can get a mrpm850 alpine amp right now off a guy for $100. I want to do it but I don't want to blow the sub. can I run this??? amp would be 800rms and sub is rated for 600rms.???

    Right but there is the JX 500/1 or the 500/1v2(only thing you could get "new") the "slash" series doesnt offer a 500/1 anymore its the 600/1v3 now. Either way the alpine amp would be fine for $100. It shoulnt blow or damage your sub if you set your gains appropriately.
