    What amp to choose? BRZ 1700 or MB Quart 1600?

    Been looking for a used one of these for weeks but none have popped up yet, thinking about just pulling the trigger on a new one. In yalls opinion what amp would be best for 2 SA 12's @ 1 ohm? Looking for the most efficient amp to provide loudest/cleanest bass to these two subwoofers. Will be ran with all 0ga wire, big 3 and in a custom box. Any views would be appreciated but someone with experience with these amps would be greatly appreciated thanks guys

    The two that you mentioned are essentially the same amp, that being said, I would reccommend perusing the classies. That is where I snagged my saz1500v.3, for alot less than retail. Also, there are several vendors on here that could help out. Lastly, what type of budget? I would say any where between 200-300 should get something decent.

    Probably looking at like $200 after spending money on the custom box and the other woofer, wish i had more so i could get a saz1500 that would be ideal but honestly don't see myself waiting to save and get one

    Yeah, this hobby is greedy. Maybe you can save a lil more and get a am bass hybrid 4488, mylows10 can help you out. The thing I'm trying to do is keep you from making our mistakes. Save up and get a decent amp the first time, those subs will appreciate it. Because by the time you get cheap, it doesn't sound like you want so you gotta save up MORE money. Cheaper to do it right straight out of the gate. Trust me, we've all been there.

    Checkout the Belva BB3000D Belva BB3000D 1800W RMS BB Series Class D Monoblock Car Amplifier

    There is gut shots out there and they look beefy inside. I am considering getting one to try out.
