Get the Crescendo 3KWP.

I hope you have a h/o alternator and a big *** secondary batt...

if you're asking questions like this, you will probably blow them when underpowering them, by clipping them.

so...you really think you can run 3kw with only the front battery and stock alternator? maybe you should do some research before you buy anything...

maybe get 1 MX and 1 sundown saz1500d, then when you upgrade your electrical get 1 more MX and 1 more sundown saz1500d

260 - 300 amps should do the trick. You'll need at least one big *** secondary battery as well.

NO!

Those subs are rated for 1,500 watts EACH. That means you'll need 3,000+ watts rms for a pair. It's simple addition, bro...

Buy this amp: Crescendo Audio :: Amplifers :: 3KWP Monoblock Amplifier (http://www.crescendoaudio.com/product.php?productid=17515&cat=0&bestseller=Y)

It's the same amp as a Sundown saz-3000d, aside from two small things. 1. The Sundown costs around $550 used and the Crescendo is $550 bnib with a 2 year warranty. 2. The Sundown has a black heatsink with a brushed aluminum accent strip and the Crescendo is gold.

The dude @ the stereo shop is just trying to sell you something, that's his job. He'll likely tell you to power the sub with a home theater plate amp if he can make a dollar from it...
