    Fosgate t1500 or alpine pdx1200

    I have come to a conclusion that I'm either getting a fosgate t1500 or alpine pdx 1200 for a dd 3512 at 2 ohms. Both are 450 brand new. Which one do I get. Also, I know that the alpine is class d and fosgate is class ab, so wouldn't it be smarter to get the alpine?

    No way that amp on Harman Audio actually gets close to 2400W with only 4ga. inputs. I'm calling bologna

    OP, you can get a LOT more power for the price. Check out PPI:

    BK1800.1D - Black Ice - Amplifiers - Products

    Or this one:

    I would disagree both are very good amps but I would take the Rockford only if its the CP model since you need 2 ohms

    I don't know if I would consider them just alright the Alpine will do rated the Rockford will do overrated not sure what more you can ask for if he were buying both amps new then yeah he can get better for the money but if he were buying these used then I won't be that much of a difference

    If he's dead set on just those amps then he should get the rockford fosgate. But there are muuuuch better choices.

    Go with the alpine out of the 2. I just went from a fosgate t30001 to an alpine mrx-m240 (2400 watts 2 ohm) and to me the alpine sounds much better. I was having some weird issues with the fosgate amp so maybe that's why it sounded the way it did. The alpine is also more efficient and runs a lot cooler. So if all you need is 2 ohm stable then go with the alpine.
