I'm trying to piece together my first SQ build, and I need a nice amp. I was looking at a Wolfram W-3000.1 brand new for $600, but there's plenty of nice products in my budget that I don't want to over look. What are some other comparable amps that I should be looking at?

This amp is a beast. Orion 2500.1dz Well over 3,000 watts.

Obvious question is do you have the electrical to run 3k watts? And why 3k on subs you're doing an sq build?

So far my electrical plan is $700 for a 300 amp alt, big 3, and two amg batteries. If that's not enough I'll save up for more.

And by your standards my build probably isn't a real "SQ" build. I just want a set-up that sounds amazing. Awesome highs, mids, and a very strong, clear, and clean bass that doesn't miss a note. I listen to a lot of different types of music, so I want musical system, then there's times where I want hard hitting 90's rap.

If you had $700 for an amp that would fit the description what would you buy, or what brands would you look at first?

Lot's of choices in a 700 dollar budget including Sundown.
I haven't even looked at Sundown amps yet. I figured they would be out of my price range.
Thank you.

Are you looking for one amp for your whole system, or two? 3K on highs and 1K on mids/highs is a good combo.
I'm looking for two amps total. A 3k for subs is what I'm trying to figure out first.

So far I like the TS 2.8, the synergy 3000 wfo, and the Wolfram w3000.1. I'm still shopping around, and I still want to look at some other brands, Sundown, Soundqubed, and other comparable amps.

Sq? Or raw power?
I ran a Aak4000.1 wired down and NEVER lacked power. (A few bux went into the electrical too)
I think anyone demoing my last setup would hear Sql but it wasn't a sq build. It def made some people sit up for what it was. Great highs, imaging and substage is all well and fine but NOT a pure sq setup. That said...
I think people confuse sq and just want sql... With the spl side focused on.
Sq builds focus on install/imaging/accuracy.
Personally I prefer throwing rearview mirrors off & making the firewall flex over hearing butterfly wings above the soundstage myself... 😅
Ive had both btw.
Lots of "advice" on the forum but whats the goal?
I'm no salesman but can advise.
And a 3k amp for 1k aint a deal... Lmao

Are these amps any good for SQ? I've never used Crescendo.
