    Want a new setup, 1600W, need suggestions

    Sold my pair of e15K's and I'm looking for I believe a single sub setup. Looking to downgrade to single 12 or pair of 10s

    Have BEtter Audio 1600M1

    500@4ohm
    1000@2ohm
    1600@1ohm

    Want a SQL setup, listen to rap and r&b but also listen to alternative rock and acoustic stuff. Give me some suggestions on setup. Would like to keep the price range around $300-$400.

    P.S. As you may know, I've got an offer from local people for a 12W7 or a 12" Brahma for $350, so if there arn't any other setups out there that will beat any of those for less than $350 then let me know.

    Yeah, only be giving it 750W, however that might be good enough for me.

    Only thing that I am scared about if I get the Brahma is giving it the full 1600W. I do not want to damage/blow it.

    Get the Brahma and build the box about 1/2cu' bigger and give it 500w.

    Come on, a brahma or a 12W7 for the same price? Go with the W7, its RMS is 750 watts anyway so that amp will be perfect

    takes a lot more power than that

    tough choice though...both are excellent drivers.
