Well, what I have now is 1 Rockford Fosgate bD1000.1 on each W7 (Slot-Ported to specifications) pushing 800 watts RMS or so. This setup is awesome, but I'm going to get another car in the near future where I can only have 1 sub amp. I have looked at the "1000+ Watt Amp" sticky ,but I want everyones recommendations on those & other amps to power my subs. Remember the W7s are SVC 3-ohm, so if they are wired together in a series it's a 1.5 Ohm load (1-Ohm stability is therefore a necessity). I DO NOT want the cheapest amp available. I DO want the best quality amp regardless of price. I am 100% in this for sound quality.

 
Pg Tantrum Comes To Mind Too..

When I Was Gonna Add A 2nd 12w7 When I Had 1, I Contact Pg And They Said Amp Would Be Fine.

Being Rated At 1500.1 @ 2ohms Min I'd Assume U'd Get Even A Bit More Than That @ 2ohms And Even So At 1.5... (1 Yr Warranty And Ebay)..

 
Most 2 ohm amplifiers will probably be stable @ 1.5 ohms ... MTX 1501D comes to mind ...
If you arnt pushing an amp to hard and its 2 ohm stable it should be able to handle a 1.5 ohm load. That dosnt mean it's ok though. An MTX amp could probobly handle a 1.5 ohm load because they make pretty good amps. I would try using a Rockford Fosgate 1500 watt RMS amp (cant remember the model number off the top of my head). You might want to look at Eclipse's DA7122 or even JL's 1000/1.

 
Trutech Sledgehammer (SH-1). 3500wrms @ 1.5ohms will definitely feed those beasts, very cleanly. //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/biggrin.gif.d71a5d36fcbab170f2364c9f2e3946cb.gif :D
