    Best bang for my buck?

    I have 2 10" assassins that need an amp and i am looking for the best bang for my buck.

    1st option: Kicker zx750.1 $310

    2nd option: Alpine MRP-m650 with a universal bass control $235

    3rd option: Pheonix Gold R15;01 with universal bass control $255

    4th option: Pheonix Gold X600.1 with universal bass contol $260

    Or any thing else you can think that might be better.

    Look around the classifieds, you can find more power for around those prices.
    It will come in handy when you decide to upgrade (everyone always decides to upgrade), and headroom is a good thing to have, too.

    the kicker or the x600.1

    the alpine is nothign special and i am not so hot on the PG octne series

    the kicker will get the job done, but more bang for your buck would be the x600.1
    considerably cheaper and just as powerful

    look on ebay espcially for millionbuy on ebay.. the x600.1 for $200 delivered.. and you dont need a bass knob anyways.. thats what a good HU is for

    You'd probably be best off getting a Hifonics 606D if u want best bang for your buck to effectively power those Assasins...

    Are there any mods for the x600.1?
