    Your guys opinions on which amps to power my system

    just some questions about which amps to get. i want a four channel for my speakers and wondering if you guys have any recomendations. i want a 500.5 jl but those are kinda steep in the price range so i was thinking maybe a Soundstream VGA 320.4 Van Gogh Series VGA320.4 for the speakers. also i have 2 12" IDMAX v.3 d4's and i want to have at least 1000 watts to power each one. would hifonics or mtx be any good? maybe the Hifonics BX1500D Brutus Class-D Series but im not sure. im open to any suggestions thanks a lot.

    Re: Your guys opinions on which amps to power my system

    if youre going to use one amp for each sub then the lowest ohm youll get is 2 ohm on each sub. therefore, if u say you want at least 1000 watts going into each sub, and you want to use ONE amp for EACH sub, then you'd better make sure that amp can do 1000 watts in 2 ohms..

    however, if u used one amp for both subs you can drop the ohm down to 1. then youd want an amp that did 2000 watts in 1 ohm (in order to get 1000 watts to each sub).
