I just got my hands on another 10w3v2-D4, so now i have to find some more power. I thought about maybe just runnin them both off my Phoenix Gold X400.1 (which is what i'm using to run the one i have now) but even with two subs, cutting the power in half i wouldn't expect much of a gain. So, i'm amp shopping. I need anywhere from 600-800wrms at 1ohm. preferrably for under $150, and definatley under $200. ebay is good too. I want to get a PG X600.1 (i looooooove my 400.1) but they are kinda pricey and hard to find. so any thoughts?

How are those powerbass amps? Do they put out rated power? How good's the build quality?

hmm.. all do-able amps, but it seems like we are lacking an overall quality factor.. for the price i would take those, but i was thinking more along the lines of finding an old Orion 600D on ebay for like $175 or around there. any opinion on that match up or does anyone have anything they think would be better than that?

Maybe 2 kicker zx300.1 - it's over $200 shipped on eBay though. I suppose I'd try the powerbass one then.

i don't think powerbass ASA is overrated. Some facts:

1- there is a pic where the ampp has 3x40A fuses. That means it should put 1000w rms at least.

2-In specs, they say 3x30A fuses. I've seen a lot of 1000w rms amp using 3x30a fuses so it should be right there.

The one i know doesn't puts the power is hifonics bxi1206d. A 80a fuse might put 1000w rms, but it takes good efficiency to achieve that power, and i dont think hifonics brutus is the best when it comes to efficiency

juliob - i agree about the hifonics, i was trying to not get to expensive and stay away from them at the same time.. lol. honestly the more i look at that powerbass the more i like it.. the clean design.. and the specs are really good for the price. i think that might be my choice... thanks for all your help guys.

the amp does look clean. if you're on a budget, unfortunately, it's hard to get power and build quality in one.

His only option, with those parameters, is used, or refurbed.

trust me, i know it's hard to get those two in one. i've had budget systems before, and i did it right last time, but now of course i need more. i'm thinkin maybe i'll just let the other w3v2 sit while i gather up some cash for a really nice amp. although i'm not satisfied with what i've got anymore (of course).. i guess i can wait it out though lol.

yeah, stick with what you've got now and save a bit more. else you'll always find yourself spending more without really getting more.
