    Need help with amp choice.Please help?????!!!

    I have narrowed my choices down to two mono amp manufacteres.If anyone has any experience with either of them please post you likes and dislikes.Im having a hard time choosing.The amp will be powering two 12" Infinity Reference series subs in a sealed box.The sub specs are 300w RMS,1200w peak,SVC 4ohm.Here are the amps im considering:

    PPI PCX 1250=500w x 1 @ 2ohms with 12v input,.02 THD, sig.-noise 110db

    Hifonics Zeus Z1000d=750w x 1 @ 2ohms, input voltage unknown,.08 THD,sig.-noise 90db


    As stated earlier if anybody has any experience with either amp make,Please post your knowledge about them!!!! I would greatly appreciate it!!!!!!

    I use to run PPI amps. They are good clean amps, but so models lack BALLS. The 1250 is a class D and is a good amp for your set up. The HiFonics seems to be a little two much for subs with a rms of 300 watts. But I compare the Infinity subs with the sony xplod models, 200 watts rms and 800 max. It's just to big of a gap between the power handling ranges to be true. Rms ratings will almost always be half of the max power rating.

    If I remember Hifonics hierarchy correctly that is the middle line.. Both MFGs make some very sweet amps most depends on what you wanna do.. I like the way HF makes em big and pretty tough but a lot of the time you sacrifice with THD to get that power. I would look more towards PPI personally generally cheaper reliability isnt an isssue and they are pretty clean..
