    Your options are pretty limited at $300 unless you go used. Especially at 2 ohms.

    Even a Hifonics BRZ2400 would barely be giving them RMS power at 2 ohms and it's $280 and probably the cheapest option you've got.

    You could strap 2 Audiopipe APSM1500s and turn the gain down, too.

    uh, they are 600 RMS each, at 2 ohms with the BRZ is around 850 RMS. i dont want to push them too far, like i'll go to 1000RMS but i dont wanna risk hurting them.

    If you have 2 SA-12's wire them at 1 ohm and get the BRZ-2400 or Soundstream rub2500 for 281... Ether way they will do fine..

    They can handle that easy, just set your gains right and you'll be fine.

    Wire them at 1 ohm.... Then turn your gain to 1/4 and not a notch past until you feel they are capable of handling more. A sub will tell you when its given too much power or clipped. You can not only hear a difference they will smell and heat up. Smell is an easy way to tell you are overpowering or clipping though.. Just pay attention to them and you will be fine its better to overpower subs and not clip than underpower and turn the gain to 100 percent trust me I know from experience..

    Re: Best Amp for 2 SA-12 D2's? Budget! (300$)

    Since you have 2 d2s, you can't wire them at 1 ohm, unless it's each to its own amp. an amp that puts out 2400 @ 2 or 4 will be expensive. I think two smaller amps would be easier/cheaper. OP, if you're going to run 2 subs, get two d4s for future reference!



    Head Unit: Pioneer avh-4300dvd,
    Front Stage: Ascendant Audio 6.75", Massive Audio 28mm tweeters
    Rear Fill: Massive Audio CK6-3 6x9 Woofers
    Amps: PPI Phantom P900.4, Sundown Audio SAZ-2500D
    Sub: RE Audio XXX 12" 2.25^3 Tuned to 32

    They sell Kicker at Wal-Mart now. That's saying a lot..
