asking for the top five is going to make your budget seem massive hence why i asked your budget

 

mmats is probably what id get if i had an unlimited budget

Budget= $350 max for the amp

 

350 max for the amp will require you to get a 200 dollar 2ndary battery and 50 dollars for a big 3 upgrade kit which total to 600 dollars total. There's no avoiding electrical upgrades when you have a sub like an FI Q. If your car has a sh*tty stock alt then you are looking at a 400-800 dollar alternator upgrade as well on top of that 600.

There's a handful of brands who still do R&D and there may be a couple that actually build their amps in the first world.

 

Budget= $350 max for the amp

 

So you're probably not looking for the top brand at this price point if you're trying to buy new. IMO a 1200-1500W amp should hang off of factory electrical well enough so I wouldn't think you'll need to get too crazy with auxiliary batteries or high output alternators. There's going to be a dozen "brands" that are basically the same Korean class D boards in different heat sinks. Any of them should serve you well enough. More importantly be sure you get a proper box built for that Q if you want good results here.

You only need one thread to figure this amp selection out.

 

It would be easy to just grab a 2k amp but it takes power to make power.

Is this a new Q or older one

Is it upgraded

The correct box built for it

What's the deal with mmats? I know two things: 1) Expensive. 2) Claims to make amps in their own shop in Florida.


Polk DB 6.5 components and coaxials, Alpine MRV M1200 (1200x1 @ 2) and MRX F30 (50x4 @ 4) amplifiers, Pioneer double din HU, Sundown SA-12 in ported enclosure (built to spec).

They intentionally underrate their amps to make them look better than they are. They are straight Zenon builds from a catalog.

 

They are NOT the top amp maker in the world... that would require engineers being on the payroll IMHO.

Just because it was built in China doesnt it mean its crap. It can be built their to a high standard, it's who designed the amp is the most important question. Take a look at your Apple products... Not one is built in the USA, Korea, Europe etc... and they make nice high end gear. But it was all designed here.

The problem with the good Chinese amps are the price tags. It’s uncalled for.

I'm not going to disagree with the cost on them.... The profit margins are high on those models... Especially on the non-regulated power supply models compared to the rest of the industry.

This is based on engineering and quality. You can spend way less and get way more power reliably with Sundown, Crescendo, Twisted, DC, etc.
