    list of amps. Which one is good.

    I need to get a rather inexpensive amp (<$200) for my two new Inf. ref 10's. I was looking at the following amps. Let me know, out of these, which is a good amp. If anyone has a different amp to recommend, tell me that too. But remember that price is definitely an issue right now.

    Soundstorm Force F700.2 (****How good are this brand's amps?)
    Crunch Power Zone P2250
    Lanzar Vibe 245

    Those are the only three that are definite choices. They are all 2-channels since I couldn't really find a mono that would get me up to 250RMS. If anyone knows of other amps that could get me to 250X2 RMS or 250X1 RMS at 2 ohms, let me know.

    The JBL 600.1 will get you 600 x 1 rms, for $200 @ www.ikesound.com .



    I'm never wrong, EVER! Just ask me.

    I don't know much about powering subs, so you'll have to help me on this one. I was always told that you need to have an amp that runs at the same RMS as your subs. Since my Infinity subs are 250 each, shouldn't I get an amp that runs 250? I know that the subs can handle up to 1000 watts, but that it isn't recommended to run subs at a rate higher than the RMS for extended periods of time.

    So if I have the JBL 600.1, which runs at 600 x 1 RMS at 2 ohms, wouldn't that ruin my subs over the long run since the JBL's RMS is over twice the RMS of the subs? Shouldn't I stick with an amp that supplies 250? Someone let me know.

    You said you had 2 subs. 600 x 1 is 300 x 2 once you wire them together. Sorry if I caused any confusion. If you only had 1 sub I would say get the 300.1. You don't have to worry about overpowering those subs by 50w, they'll take it. And if you want to you can turn the gains down a bit on the amp to be safe.
