    Help me pick an amp!

    Looking for another amp to push just one SA12D4. Going to get another 12 soonish'

    What is the difference in the 2 of those other than year made. And are there any other amps with the power in the same price range. Looking for a warrantied item so not looking a used right now. Will post links in next post.
    Well wtf it won't let me post links. Links were to the newer hifonics colossus on sonic electronix, and other was to a refurbished colossus xxv on audio savings. New colossus was $439 and the refurb xxv is $379.
