    Help choosing new amp for two American Bass TNT 1244's

    OK guys, I currently have one TNT 1244, dual 4 ohm, 600 watt rms, receiving 561 watts at two ohms from an Alpine Mrv-m500. Looking to add another 12 soon.

    Was originally going to just add another Alpine to power the second sub. But I was considering just getting one amp and selling the Alpine that I already have.

    My question is what would be a good amp for two of these subs? Possibly 1200-1500 watts. I have heard these sub's can take more per than 600 as long as it is clean power.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    rear fill- pioneer 4way 6x8 and 2-way 4x6
    Amp(s)- Kenwood KAC 1502S (connected to rear 6x8's), Rockford Fosgate T500-1bdcp and Alpine Mrv-M500
    Sub(s)- 2 American Bass TNT1244, each in a 1.7 cubic ft sealed (Yeah that's right, sealed) custom built enclosure
    And a Kenwood 12 in a prefab box.
    Happy, but not finished.

    I will spend what I need to for reliability. Ideally under $300, way under if possible.

    Doesn't have to be new, but I'm not looking to buy right now, possibly in a few weeks.

    Thanks for suggestion, I was considering one of those. Should I be concerned that the amp doesn't have fuses? Never owned an amp without fuses.

    It uses inline fuses "fuse the wire" thus no need for onboard fuses... Makes no difference just a convenience factor..

    Yeah that sundown would be great, Maybe one day. But the audiopipe 1500 are only like $120 on amazon right now. I may give one of those a shot. Thanks for the input.

    Saw your thread about a new amp, have you decided on one yet? I'm thinking of keeping the amp and subs the same brand. I'm reading great things about the AB amps. Everybody competes with them.

    Not really but it's going to be between the crescendo symphony 1500 or soundqubed Q1-2200. I was thinking about matching brands but the American Bass vfl 100.1 is close to 400 dollars might as well get a Q1-2200 for a few extra dollars.

    If you decide to brand match, holler at mylows10 on here. He could probably get you a good deal, he's an AB dealer, I think. I've got a dealer here in southern Louisiana. I'd have to see if he ships. His prices are well below retail. He's got the ph2500 for $250, 1250 RMS. Same build house as massive nano. I'm getting one as soon as work picks up or a ph4000.
