    if not would 2 saz1500d amps and run 2 subs wired at 1ohm on each amp work well?

    no 2 ohms or .5 ,i have 4 vfl 8's under my rear seat in the z71 truck on 2600 rms and they get pretty loud .you need at least 2600-3500 rms for those subs.i see that you prefer a new amp as well .well dc is having a presale on some of they're amps which will be shipping out the 1st week of march .i can give you a good deal on a new dc 3.5 amp ,and its under the budget that you stated earlier .

    im not doing the system right now so thats why a new amp would be easier for me im going to be doing it in a couple of months so you think 2 saz1500 would work fine just run 2 subs on each at 1 ohm

    Re: need amp ideas for 4 sundown audio sa-8 v2

    would it be a good idea to get 2 cheaper amps of higher watts since cheap amps are like not true like say get two boss 5000w amps or i found this power acoustik amp its rated at 2200 at 1ohm so run 2 subs off of that half of 2200 is 1100 and it wouldnt be true wattage since its a cheaper amp wouldnt it be at like 750w to each sub?

    Anything 2k or so would be fine. Find a good deal on a used 2k amp then buy a 3500 when you have the money saved. I will be able to get you a Ampere Audio when they are available if you like. Great Zenon based amp

    the only thing is cheap amps usually dont give out the wattage they say they do so what the best bang for the buck brand or the best like off brand amp that will give me close to the wattage it says?

    I meant find a used amp on here by aq, powerbass, american bass, sundown,etc that is 2k and cheap. You should be able to find one of those on here or on caraudioclassifieds.com for a good price!
