Yeah, Audiopipe amps are good for the price. If you want a little more beefy amplifier, something like an AQ 2200 would work nice in your application. A brand new audioque 2200 is 390 plus shipping directly from AQ.
If you want an amp to make that kind of power in your price range, you are probably going to have to move away from you more well known brands or hold out for a long time as you hunt for steals. I'd sell you my 2 Kicker KX1200.1s, but even at that, I'm probably still a hundred or so out of where you want to be.
Thatd be like giving soulja boy a "lambo", He has a nice piece of equipment but its either going to be a total waste or its going to get ruined.
Again. Dont be soulja boy.
my friend is doing it for me so dont need to worry about building and setting up
yea of course he isnt doing it by himself its my chance to learn n u think am going to give it up?
Screw all that...
.. If you're on a Budget - Go with the " Power Acoustik STAX 5500/1D "
The amp is AMAZINGLY powerful & CLEAN!
... (5) 40a fusing - (2) Power Inputs, (2) Ground Inputs, & (2) Remote Inputs ... You can put 0ga in the power inputs ( fyi )... Speaker wire inputs can take 8ga ( if you like big wire for subs )... The amp is 1ohm stable - and WILL NOT get hot - & I must say again: THERE IS PLENTY POWER IN THIS AMP!
... You can get it for like $200 - $250 Shipped - The amp will give you 3200rms PLUS @ 1ohm
I have a 12v Car ( 1999 Nissan Sentra GXE ) - STOCK ALT. (90amps ) - 0ga wiring ( including Big 3 in 0gauge ) - And I'm getting 13.9v @ the back battery ( I have 2 batteries ). I don't drop below 11.1v...

thanks for the advice everyone will keep everyones ideas in mind
and dude ur talking about running a sub that wants like 15 cubic feet of boxness in a civic. and you dont wanna spend much on an amp that needs to push a sub rated for 5000 rms but will actually take 10 daily. no matter what you do, you are gonna be puttin a ton of money into your car. ill tell u what, trade me that solo x 18 ill send you a solo x 10, you pay overseas shipping on both and we will call it even.
