    whats a good amp for $400 or less

    I have $400 to spend on amplifier I have 3 Rockford Fosgate T1's 2ohm dual voice coil 600 W RMS 1200 W peak. There are already wired up in a box running at 1.3 ohms, I would like to have an amp that can run all three of them or run two of them at 2 ohms. Can I have all three of them hooked up running them at 2 ohms?
