    dump my old school coustic amp???

    wanted to some opinions... each of my RF 8" subs are 250w rms / 500w max. i was going to use the coustic amp380 (~250-300w rms x 1) and my installer told me that he didnt think the amp was up to par qualitywise.

    so... any opinions on the old school coustic stuff? should i stick w/ it?

    i was thinking of picking up some used gear for my subs that i saw here on CA and in the classifieds... what would ppl think of these options?

    - MTX Thunder Pro 150x2 (1 x 300w rms spec)
    - Rockford Fosgate 500s (1 x 500w rms spec)
    - Soundstream Rubicon 302 (1 x 300 w rms spec)


    the subs will be in a sealed box. thx!

    If it were me, Id install the amp you already have first of all. It may be plenty for you, or it may not. Try it before you buy another amp though, no sense buying a replacement till you decide if you like what you have.
