    Re: help with choosing amplifier

    i would go the 1500 if i was you. the 1000 doesnt leave you as good of an option when/if you plan on adding woofer number 2 BUT it will power them both pretty well. the 1500 on 1 sub might be a wee bit too much power (doubt it from what i heard) but if you dont try turning the gains all the way up you should be fine. again either will work but if you are looking for the best between these 2 for 1 pair of l-7's the 1500 would be my choice but REMEMBER dont get power/volume happy while its on 1 sub. when you wire the single sub up it will be 2 ohm in parrallel so it would get 1000 watts on its own off the 1500 (betting it will be closer to the 750-850 range though in real world application)

    also let the l-7's break in for a few days before you let them real jam.
