    Subwoofers are not hitting hard at all :(

    What amp would be good and provide good power to my two MTX Terminator 12" Subwoofers. The bass package that I purchased from www.sonicelectronix.com came with the MTX TN250/1 Monoblock Amplifier that only has a 400 watt peak power. My subs have 1200 watt power handling, I need something more powerful and closer to my subwoofers max handling. Anyone have any links or advice?

    Here is the link for the Subwoofer & Amp Package I purchased

    The MB Quart DSC4125 would work just be careful with the gain. $135 shipped on ebay

    Those subs are only rated for 200 rms each. Save yourself a bit of money and just get another of the same amp since those amps only push 200 rms @ 2 ohms each. Max/Peak power really dont mean ****. Pretend it doesnt say anything about max/peak power.
