    What's your guys' take on Boss and Pyramid amps?
    I know they're cheap brands and can't compare with
    top name brands, but I'm curious about these. Besides
    saying that they are crap and are cheap, I'd like to hear some
    opinions about these:

    Boss Audio R1100M mosfet mono amp

    Boss AR1500M Armor Mono amp

    Pyramid PB2518 MOSFET Amp

    Pyramid PB1217X MOSFET Arctic series amp


    ..anyone know anything about these?

    What's your budget for an amp? What coil configuration are your subs? d2? d4?

    Haha I know how that feels I'm a full time student with a full time job.
    If you're looking for budget, then it's best to find stuff used.
    I would even go Craigslist and test them myself when you meet them in person.
    I found great deals in Craigslist, but you have to be careful.

    ^This.

    I almost forgot about the blowout sale.
    If you can still return the subs for a refund I would return them and get 2 Strato 12" D4 and 800.1 for the amp.
    Wire the subs down to 1 ohm.

    That will be a cheap and pretty dxmn good set up.

    Here's a demo of 4 of those 12s.
