    dont do it!!! i absolutely positively hated my brutus amp. I really dont think they do rated power and they will overheat on you.
    See if u can find a Rockford T1500 or even better T2000 or something along those lines.
    I can get u a Rockford T2000 for 405 plus shipping.

    But for cheap power...........idk really.....i'd suggest searching the classifieds.

    ehh, to each his own.
    My brutus must have been a defect then. At 2 ohms i was gettin "900rms". took that amp off for a sec and hooked up a friends kicker zx750.1 and my L7 seemed to wake up. But its whatever, i'm not buyin' it.
    Look into cadence amps OP.

    maybe it was ur electrical also? i dont know bro ive never had a single problem with one.. ive been buying them for over...7-8 years now. OP: theres a lot of budget amps in the buget of a brutus and power ranges they put out..just look around

    could have been. Which would make em power hungry amps. I know I loved my Cadence Dakota in comparison.

    I have never had a problem with a Brutus either, even running a 1/2 ohm every day, as long as the amp has enough voltage to do what it does. Also, **** wangs for the price point.

    Another good cheap choice is the AP line of Audiopipes, the Lanzar OPTI series, and the new Autotek Mean Machines.

    Basically, not the worst amp u could buy, but very power hungry. Make sure ur electrical is on point.

    Ive always had excellent luck with Memphis amps. I had my Memphis mcd1100 hooked to 2 kicker comp vrs and it was ridiculously loud. It was in a prefab box too!
