You can look at US Acoustics Mike for $300 too. Sexy amp IMO. There’s tons of choices in that power range. What are you wanting to pay?

At a glance, they all look like solid amps. I like RF amps, but i think their punch/prime lines are cheap and don't equate them to their great amps. Same goes for Kicker. My vite is for the bigger Pioneer

Yeah, of those I’d definitely do the US Acoustics Mike. I’m just not a big fan of crescendo. Budget helps though man. Let us know

I'm thinking around 300 more or less, but the US Acoustics Mike isn't in stock anywhere, I was dead set on Sundown SFB 1500, but I keep reading that these full bridge amps are very touchy when it comes to voltage and right now I'm hoping I can stay away from the extra battery, maybe it's too much for stock electrical either way and I might be wrong trying to stay away from it

The Kicker cxa series are pretty decent, I'm running 3 in my current setup. That said, $300 for a 1200w mono is not quite the bang for your buck that I got with the smaller amps (4 channel 360 watts for $130 and the 800.1 for 170), I see no reason to grab that 1200.1 for that price. I don't know about the pioneers though. I've been loving their head units, but their amps have been letting me down (small sample size, 2 amps lol).

It shows to be available in a month if you can wait that long. I’ll be hooking mine up very soon in my truck.

The Sundown SFB is a good amp. As long as your head unit is 4 volts or less. Some of the Taramps full bridge amps only like 2 volts of input, so, they were sensitive that way. Where you at in Vegas? I'm close to Southern Highlands.
