Pretty much anything found at car audio stores like pioneer, kenwood, alpine, kicker etc... I am not saying they are bad by any means, in fact many of these brands make good products. However, when dealing with subwoofers I would much rather go with hand built subs like FI, AA, DC, DD, SSA, RE...
^ i agree ..if i was starting out today i would get a the ppi phantom 900.4 and 1000.1....very compact, and will do the rated power ....both can b had for less than $400 new total and would b a great starter setup
If budget is the main concern and you want GOOD quality... I'd go used... Just be careful and make sure the seller is not some fly by night newb (If buying online) or if you find one locally just roll up with a vehicle that's all wired up & ready to go and tell the seller you want to hook it up first... If they aren't trying to sell you garbage they should have no problem letting you do so b4 ANY $$$ is handed over... I'm NOT a fan of Cadence's current line up of amps, but they did make some good sh1t in the past if you do your research... I got my current Cadence Daytona DCA2500.1 off of craigslist locally for $120 however NOT everyone is able to find such a good deal ($120 for 2500 rms - LOL) but there are still a lot of good deals out there to be had if you are careful and look around ;)
U want a good amp but dont wanna pay the good amount of coin to get one. Your budget sux.
AQ for best bang for buck IMO. Im wanting to get a PPI900.4 as well.
I have helped build a full on SQ install with PPI Black Ice amps. They are GREAT. I wonder what "internet brands" have fully active crossovers like the PPIs anywhere near the price of the Phantoms, Black Ices, and Power series. BTW, that setup sounds amazing. So much clean power!
I liked my americanbass amp alot
Is it under rated?
Can the new ppi be named as one of the best sq amps out?
The USA made PPI amps did all this
I'm not saying its not a good amp for cheap. But it can no longer be compared as one of the best amps
SUNDEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRN. sundown, JBL crown series is awesome, sound digital if you like burps. pretty much the only 3 I would ever run
Back in the day planet audio was good... Now *****
Re audio used to be kick butt... Now not as good
Cerwinvega had a real hard fall
PG used to be amazing...... Now it's mostly junk
This list could go on and on
But I have seen some great new brands come out at really good prices
Mainstream brands top of the line products are ok but you will over pay and the entry level is most times junk
These would be
JL audio and so on
