    Recommendations for a good 1ohm stable amp?

    I'm looking for a good quality (durability/reliability) 1ohm stable monoblock amp that i can find for about $400 or under, $450 max. To run to two Image Dynamics iDmaxv4 15's 1200w rms each in a 10cf ported box tuned at 30hz. 1/0 gauge input preferred but i'll buy reducers if i have to obviously lol.

    I'm a bit of a beginner audiophile here and i'm just looking for some more experienced opinions.

    I'd look used if you want to score more power from that price range.

    If you have to get new then this is what I suggest

    SoundQubed 2200.2 - 429

    Twisted Sounds 1.8K - 400

    CT Sounds 3k is on pre-order for 469, I know thats over your budget but I have their 4k and I couldn't be happier.

    I've ran the SQ 2200 and the Twisted 1.8. Both solid amps that will perform.

    Two cab 1600.1 should power those nicely. And brand new for $400 for both

    Taramps HD 3k can be had for around 250 used off amazon, i paid 230 for mine on there and it works perfectly. I know a few people have had very weird problems with Taramps but im still a fan of the 3k

    their 400 dollar "3k" amp looks completely identical to the old c2 audio recon 2.0 amps which are reliable 2.7k amps. Nothing new but those amps were pretty cheap back then as well. These guys are charging a lot compared to back then and this is just the introductory price.

    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    Re: Recommendations for a good 1ohm stable amp?

    It isnt a new design, none of these zenons or s&i's are. Identical pcb and identical amp are different things. The c2 used capxon components which are inferior to the samwhas in the wolfram.

    There is another korean company, which is considered good now, but faced the same scrutiny when they came with introductory pricing. Their 3500 used samwha components while others using the exact same pcb did not.. the amp using the samwhas is about 700w stronger on the dyno.

    If this amp does 3k+, i fail to see how 399 is somehow poor pricing... c2 pricing was so good, they couldnt stay in business

    Oh we prob already know. But...go ahead and do tell anyway.

    CAB 1600 and Twisted Sounds. TS is really underrated. Been proven and CAB lives up to its name.
