Zed Minotaur would probably be very solid on average since it runs at a lower rail voltage until you ask it to produce more power, then jumps up.
Class D amps are at optimum efficiency at full power and at higher impedance.
Real world your average efficiency will be nothing like the numbers manufacturers claim, though of course, real world you're likely only seeing 10-15% of it's rated output on average either.

Probably most answers are a speculation as you need to test this formally. If you're worried about efficiency, get a solid Class D mono amp that does 1200watts with 2ohm load. I can't imagine efficiency being worse than 70% at max output level.
and MMATS!!! Lol
What is your electrical like as of now? You are NOT going to switch to a different ~1100 watt amp and suddenly see much better voltage.
Head unit: Kenwood Excelon KDC-X996
Front stage: Alpine Type X PRO mids Vifa Neo 1" silk tweeters
Front stage amp: PPI Bk800.4
Subs: SSA XCON 12's in 4.5 cubes tuned to 34hz
Sub amp: PPI Bk1300.1
Sound Deadening: Second Skin Damplifier Pro, Spectrum, and Sludge
I think with your setup you need to be asking what the most efficient 1500 watts amp is which again is Mmats.
