just get a crowbar and start popping trunks till you find an amp. honestly your subs will basically only be as good as your amp.

If you can get a Boston Acoustics amp on sale, that's your best bet. It's light weight and has a crystal clear sound for an average wallet. On sale or off ebay you are looking at anywhere from $80 mono to $120 stereo to $299 for pro series.

Boston, Alpine amps are my choices and have good prices. Stay away from MTX and anything advertised in a rap video or magazine. Sure it will be loud, but it will also be dirty sound. The cleaner the sound, but less pannels will buzz.

Just because it's a 1500w amp doesn't mean anything. Audiopipe is a good amp. Do you want some gut pics of an Audiopipe amp?

did you really just call me a noob?? listen fagget just because you comment on are statuses doesn't mean you are part of the conversation. i just posted my opinion thats why he asked for help to listen to peoples opinions? not to listen to you agree with purnakk usually when you post on a help wanted you put useful info in it. i like audiopipe subs and audiopipe just fine they are good and the prices arent bad. you agreeing and posting a x2 doesn't mean anything why do you like it do you have one what are you powering?
ranger024x4 you = fail.

ranger101 - those are some mean guts lol how long have you had that amp??

----------

oh and purnak do you have a boston amp i am looking at trading my kickers theres something up with them

I've had Audiopipe amps, I've had friends who've had them and we've never had a problem. They do rated power and are cheap but still have great quality. The pic I posted isn't mine but that's Audiopipes 3k watt amp. The 1500 is identical because all the ap3k is is two 1500's strapped.
