    Need a bit of guidance

    I'm going to be redoing my system and I need some direction on what to buy / best way to spend my money. Right now I have a MRP-M500 on a SWR-843D (don't laugh), I'm wanting to go to a 12' for more bass. There are two options, use the MRP-M500 on my highs and buy a new amp or use the MRP-M500 on the 12. If I use the MRP-500 on the highs I was looking at buying a Kicker 11DX10001 ( thoughts on this?), or does anyone have any suggestions on a good mono amp? Also as far as the new sub goes, I need recommendations. I don't want to go cheap but I don't need a w7, so some nice quality somewhere in between.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Re: Need a bit of guidance

    What are the amp specs, power at ohm ratings? What is your budget for sub, and also for sub and amp if you want another amp?

    ahh didnt think about this, you're right it's a mono amp. I'm looking on spending 400-500 total ... Like I said I want something decent but I don't need to go overboard with it.

    The kicker amp is solid but I'm sure much better can be had for cheaper. Check out AQ1200

    This looks very promising, recommend a good sub to go along with it. Not sure if I need that much bass but never hurts to have I guess ....

    Couldn't find the AQ1200 anywhere online, know of any spots to get it?


    Also it looks like bass can get had for less than I orignally thought, what would a budget of 350 - 400 get me?

    to make the post below make sense, I asked about the mb quart amps, but later deleted it ... not sure why
