    Icon32 MA Audio,audiopipe, or Power Acoustik?

    i need a replacement amp and i have come to a crossroad where i cant decide on what to get.... i need to power some audiobahn aw1000q at 600rms a peice(but i want to run less because i know they are a little overrated)...the crappy mono8000t i have isnt cutting it
    here are the choices i am up against(all around the same price for where i want to purchase them from.. so please i dont want other suggestions of amplifiers.. i have my sources already)

    -Power Acoustik LT1440-2
    -MA Audio HK897
    -audiopipe GM-4CLD

    all of these are around the right power i need to run 2 of these 10"subwoofers.. but am perplexed as to what to power them with.. i am leaning heavily towards the hk897 though.. but can be swayed either way.. i appreciate the input

    I'd go with the 897, regulated power supply and some other extra's I dont know if the other amps have...

    Re: MA Audio,audiopipe, or Power Acoustik?

    i appreciate the feedback.... yeah i thought the MA audio would be the best choice from the 3 i have been looking at.... my bro has an LT9802 which doesnt sound too bad... but i kinda wanted somethin different than what everybody else has around here(best buy/circuit city stuff)... thanks again for the feedback...

    oh and jazn.. thanks for the offer.. that is a good price with shipping by the way.. but i already have my sources to purchase the amps from(prior commitment to take advantage of a good deal).. but thanks anyway.. i am sure someone would want to pick up the hk897 from ya for that good of a price

    that power acoustik LT980 probably puts out 500 rms bridged, even though it's rated at 560 rms bridged.
