    Need serious amp help(for XXX)?

    I have a 15" XXX in a 1.7 cuft sealed box stuffed w/polyfill,I recently bought a hifonics 1500bd but sent it back because it was damaged.anyways I was looking into these amps because they look nice,

    1)soundstream tarantula 880/2- Does 880 in 4 ohms bridged, price 399 on millionbuy.com

    2)soundsream rubicon 1000/2- Does 1000 in 4 ohms bridged, 249 on millionbuy.com

    3)stay with the hifonics 1500 bd- 1500 in 1 ohm

    I'm mostly looking for some really good SQ,but I still want it to get really loud, my price rangr for an amp is 300-400.

    Marleyskater420 has a hifonics 1500bd hooked up to his 15'' XXX. Talk to him if you want to know how to or know what to run to your sub.

    I don't think either of the soundstreams will be enough for the XXX. Stick with the bx1500d.

    step 1.port ur box.step 2.thank me :P 3.keep ur amp.its a good amp. this sub can take as much power as you can give it,and 880w and 1kw aint much for it to tell you the truth.i gonna hookup 2.1kw to it later this week and see how she does.the hifo is a good amp.i have had no problems with mine in the least bit.its reliable,looks nice,remote gain is nice feature,easy to use(my bud's 500/1 is like reading chinese).keep your amp.the only reason i would sell mine is to get more watts.u cant beat 260$ for 1.5kw.anyway,stay with your amp,its worth it.it gets hot,yes,but its never shutoff on me,plus i have a 4 to 8awg distro block so that NEVER helps.all in all,keep your amp,you will thank me for it.
