    Need help choosing amp for my Kicker l7s!

    Ok I recently got two kicker l7 12s in a ported box off of craigslist for $150. I have been out of the car audio game for about 4 years and need some help. The l7s are the older ones with the red and white S in the middle. I need a decent quality amp for kinda cheap if possible, been kinda thinking about the Audiopipe ap18001D or the ap15001D. Not sure which to go with but am also open to all suggestions. Cant really go over $200 right now. Just looking to add some good bass to the prelude until I can save up a good amount of money to put a serious system in the car. Need help on getting an amp so that I can a have some bump in the ride bc Ive missed it so much over the years.

    If they are the red/white logo - they are first gen's ('01).
    Power rating has not changed on the L7's since they came out, so 750 watts rms per 12".

    For around $200, you could find a used DX1000.1 or KX1200.1.
    For just a bit more, you could get find a ZX1500.1.

    so the better choice would be to save a little more and just get a zx1500.1 then right?

    Re: Need help choosing amp for my Kicker l7s!

    so what other ideas could I go with then? Im eventually going to get different subs to whatever amp I end up getting but Im going to work with the l7s for a while until I decide what new subs to replace the l7s with. Had a Fi 15" back in the day and may get another one in the future bc my 15" slammed when I had it.
