Parts express has some nice cheap plate amps....

But you will need to make sure it can handle the impedance of your speaker and have enought wattage to drive everything you need....

Great news thanks guys... However I'm noticeing that almost all of these amps i see are 4ohm, and my sub is 2ohm. Any suggestions on an amp that will push 400-500ish rms at 2ohm? also my reciever only has a one wire input for the sub not a R and L will this be ok for these amps?

Thanks again
