    Icon7 Monoblock Amp Help!

    Alright, I have a JBL W12GTI-MKII, its rated at about 700rms and 4000 peak, what would be a good amp for it? I currently have a Hifonics Brutus 1200.1, but that just isn't pushing enough power to it at 4ohms. I have a budget of about $300 and would like to have something that will push about 800rms at 4ohms, all recommendations a welcome!


    Sorry wouldn't let me post a link to it!

    Sounds about perfect, is there any negotiating room on that price?
