    Can somebody help me pick out an AMP?

    OK, so I want to install all Rockford Fosgate Punch series in my car
    I'm working on saving the money to get everything and have it installed
    I'm gonna get the Rockford Fosgate P2D4-12 and I need to know what size amp I would need
    Only one sub it's a 12" punch series P2, dual 4-Ohm, 400-Watt RMS and 800-Watt Max
    Can somebody help me out a little bit?

    I would like to stick with the punch series but I can go with anything Rockford Fosgate if need be

    Re: Can somebody help me pick out an AMP?

    anything that puts out ~~400rms @ 2ohms will do just fine

    here you go since you're looking for punch series.
    PUNCH Amplifiers - P400X1 - Rockford Fosgate®

    with that being said, ill leave this here for you to consider because someone will come along and say it anyway..

    Re: Can somebody help me pick out an AMP?

    lol for 200 bucks get you a much better amp easily. and better sub is easily had.

    PWE 352 MB Quart 15" 1600W 2 Ohm DVC Subwoofer Speaker Made by Rockford Fosgate 780687314231 | eBay
    amazing sub built by fosgate when fosgate was built in the us

    MB Quart DSC1000 1 2yr WARNTY New Amp Car Mono 1 Channel 1000W RMS Amplifier 011120381252 | eBay
    MB Quart REF1 800 Ref 1 800 800W Reference Series Monoblock Car Amplifier Amp 806576217251 | eBay
    Mbquart FX1 1000 Formula Mono Amplifier 1000W RMS 2 50 Amp Fuses | eBay

    on one of these amps would blow away your setup easily

    Re: Can somebody help me pick out an AMP?

    I don't want something thats gonna be way over powering either
    why would I need a 1000W amp or an 800W amp if im only gonna be using 400W?

    I guess I'm asking your opinion on brand and product for a 400W 2 or 4-Ohm Amp
    I'm gonna keep the sub and speakers though

    More power because once you get that sub in and hooked up youll probably want something louder.

    Alpine MRX-M50
    Alpine MRX-M55
    Alpine MRP-M500

    These do about 500watts rms at 2ohm. Also check out the RE Audio DTS 1500D.

    x2 1000rms at 1 ohm but you will def wnt a better sub down the road like the mb quart i posted, so when you do upgrade you wont have to buy a new amp . those amps will put out 1000rms at 1 ohm but still give you the 500rms at 2 ohm
