    3000 watts rms amp

    Looking for an amp that will do at least 3000 watts rms. Already have the rest of the instal done, now just need an amp. Not too concerned about the cosmetics of the amp to a certain point. (Don't want something that looked like it barely survived the apocalypse) but not worried about some scratches or scuffs.

    The amp will be pushing 3 JL 12W7s in a ported box built to JL specs

    Budget: would love to find something around $300 shipped but willing to spend up to $600 shipped for the right

    Trade items:

    1- 12" JL Audio W3v2
    1- JL Audio 300/4
    2- sets of 5.25 fosgate prime r152 2 ways (brand new never installed)
    1-set of Focal Access 165 A1 (mid bass only)
    1- set of Focal Access 130 CA1 5.25
    1- Complete set of 5.25 Focal Utopia's (bass drivers, crossovers, and tweeters) have been repaired
    1- set of Digital Designs CXS-6.5
    1- set of Focal Access 165 CA1 (used but have original box)
    2- 12" Alpine type r's model number 1243D
    1- 10" JBL high excursion
    1- 12" Fosgate R2
    1- Fosgate Power T1500.1bd (scratched and I think the outputs are going out)

    PS. Trying to post pics. Photobucket is being retarted

    Re: 3000 watts rms amp

    What ohm .5 or 1? The W7s are 3 ohms each. Before box rise they should all be running at 1 ohm when I wire them together. After box rise there is no telling what they will be playing at.

    I'll keep your offer in mind. I have really been wanting to try one of their amps. I have heard good things about them.

    Re: 3000 watts rms amp

    Another concern I have, I'm pretty sure it's from the box design, but when I clamped the JL 1000/1 I had on the W7s previously the ohm level I got was around 6.7 ohms, could that be the amp? I'm worried that I'll buy another amp (one like the vfl 200.1) that does amazing at 1 ohm and my subs will be playing around 5 to 7 ohms. The result would be very little correct? So should I be worried or was it probably the amp?

    3 3ohm subs should be around .75 ohm

    Re: 3000 watts rms amp

    I figured it should be around 1 ohm, I was told it could be the box design, creating a huge box rise.... I have never heard of it rising that much.
