    need 2 good amps

    I need a amp that will run 3 subs... 2 12'' MTX Thunder 6000 and 1 15'' MTX Thunder 8000.
    And another amp to run 6 speakers.
    Speakers: 2 - 4x6
    2 - 4x10
    2 - 6 1/2

    any recomendations?

    I can't think of a way to run your 3 subs with one amp. You'll need one for the 15 and one for the 12's

    I'll assume they're all 4 ohm. Your 15 is going to take a good sized 2 ch a/b, for example the RF 500.2 or possibly the MTX 8302.
    For the 12's I'd be thinking RF bd500.1 or the jl 500/1 - anything that's around 500rms @ 2 ohms really.

    With your other 6 speakers you could either go with a 6 ch amp such as the Lanzar optidrive 6 ch or, what I would do, is use a 4 channel amp and run 2 channels at 2 ohms on your 4x10's and 4x6's and run the other 2 ch on the 6.5's

    Well, I'll assume best case cenario...all in seperate enclosures, and all 4 ohms. If you want to give your 15" enough power to get any reasonable performance out of it, it will need 500 watts or more, but your 6000's can only handle 250-300. About the only option using one amp is to run your subs paralell for a 1.3 ohm load. Let's say you use a 1000 watt amp. All 3 subs will see 333 watts, too much for the 12's and too little for the 15. I'm sure it would be ok, but I just don't think you'll be getting the best from either the 12's or the 15. If it were me, I'd sell the 15 and use that $$ toward one sweet amp for just the 12's. Or sell the 12's, get another 15 and an amp for those.

    ok i see now. What you think about this? (friend of mine said this may work)

    get nice 1000 watt 4 channel amp.
    bridge 2 channels to run to the 15 @ 500 and then 1 channel to each of the 12'' @ 250 each ....?

    i have about 500-700 (maybe more) to spend on a amp.

    can a mod move this to the right forum?

    What is RMS on your subs?? I would look at a crossfire BMF 600.1 Class D or JL 500/1 for the 12's. and a seperate one (same amps) for the 15. I would really go with the a class D though. More efficent,run alot cooler, little more distortion but for subs you will never hear it. Then get like a crossfire TEK 50.4 or 75.4, RF, JL for the highs and wire them like ole boy said. Make sure it is a class A/B for the highs. hope that helps
