    How much electrical do you have?

    You can buy NEW Brazilian in that power range for that money. Buy on Amazon/eBay and buy 3rd party warranty and you won't have to worry about anything. If you want reliable, you should be setting your sights on low to mid 700$ range (used) proven 5K boards. American Bass, Crescendo, DC, DD, etc.

    Oh, and amp-lab in Maine (google them) had a Team Cactus 7K refurbed for a very fair price recently. Not sure if it's still there but that's a pretty beast 7K.

    Electrical wise I have a Singer 275 amp and enough room for 3-5 batteries plus a starting battery. Looking to power 4 Soundqubed HDC3 12s.

    I did look into the Crescendo BC5500, the Sundown Svc6000, and they do still have the cactus 7k. I've been away from the game for a few years and apparently everything has changed drastically.

    Not so much. The reliable 5K's are the same exact boards as they were 8 years ago. 7k's IMO aren't quite as reliable but still also mostly old designs. IIRC that Cactus was "on sale" for 900$ a couple weeks ago so you might could try to email or call them and make an offer. He said they clamped some impressive numbers out of it.

    Re: Wtb CT Sound 7k

    I'm really looking for something I can add a second down the road. Mid late next year most likely. So the 5500 or 6k may be better choices.

    I wasn't asking for a offer but if it's not what I want then I'd rather not pull it out the bed.

    Wow. Dude tries to warn you that the amp you're asking for is a fire hazard and this is your reply? Good luck, hope you have a fire extinguisher in your car.

    I've been looking at used sundown 6ks around that price. Not to sure about the other one. Doesn't seem like the power I'm really looking for. And I'm stuck running .5 or 2 ohm with my woofer configuration.

    Re: Wtb CT Sound 7k

    Have a look at Twisted Sounds. If their 2.8k amp is that much under rated and do a hell of a lot more and then some (4100 watts) I can't imagine what their other amps are capable of.
