Default Looking For Amp

Okay, so i am thinking very seriously about buying 2 12" Re Audio XXX Dual 2OHm subwoofers. I am going to get two for the price of one....which would be about $1200. Problem is, My Kicker 1500Watt RMS amp is not gonna be enough to even fully power one of these monsters.

I need an amp (or two) that could power these beasts. Needs to be an efficient, quality amp. Not Hifonics or any of that crap. Right now, lets say cost does not matter. Hit me with links to quality amps!

Ah, and just thought about this....Since these RE XXX subwoofers are dual 2ohm, I need to look for a 1OHM capable amp. Or a REALLY powerful 2Ohm amp that would put out 4000watts RMS @ 2OHM, lol.

Where is pbasil1 lol.

Anyway, what i have in mind are the amps listed:

Zapco C2K 9.0X -- A bit too far out of my price range though....

or

RD 3250.1 -- A bit more affordable....

Or I might look at some of those higher output U.S. Amps

Either way, I need an amp that can put out 2000watts RMS to each sub and do so without clipping or putting out crappy sound quality

LOL can you really afford all the stuff to power 2 XXX's? Not only will you be spending well over a grand on an amp, but you will also have to upgrade the alternator, battery(s) and all power wires. Plus the box will be just rediculously huge and heavy!

But, anyways, to this amp you want. Your probably going to have to grab 2 amps and either strap them or buy a monstrous mono block. And to be honest i wouldnt even know who to look for for such a beast.

I would plan on grabbing to big mono blocks...

even then... The XXX's are really intended for "street" use. They were built for competition. There big, heavy and ungodly power hungry... If you really want something crazy loud, but street friendly grab like 2 RE SX's and build a crazy box and get a massive mono block and i assure you, they will blow your mind.
