There are MANY companies! What is your price range?

For a true 600 watts rms @ 1 ohm, and VERY reliable at an affordable price only ($229), this is what I would go with:

The Cadence txa-750d is 600w RMS at 1 ohm, if you can find one they're like 150 bucks.

Sorry 'bout the double post, but I was just thinkin that since you have a 2 ohm DVC sub, then you could just wire it at 4 ohms, in which case you could get this amp: http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=125&idproduct=382

or this one: http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?search=profile+ap1200&i=489AP1200

Neither of those amps are NEAR the quality of Orion.

Just because you're hot for Orion, doesn't mean that those amps aren't "worthy" to power that driver.... Dude asked for ideas for amps, I gave ideas. You think I think thats as good as it gets? He said he didn't want to spend much since it's not even goin into his car. So those were the highest quality, cheap amps I could think of. Take a Ridilan and switch to decaf brother.

First off, it's NOT the highest quality if it is cheap! Secondly, if you think that by spending $60 less on equipment that will not last half as long as good equipment will, then you are seriously mistaken as to giving good "ideas". By him buying cheap equipment that will fail in the near future, he will now have to spend double the money to replace the inferior equipment when he could have just spent $60 more on a quality product.

There are MANY other amplifier companies that I thoroughly enjoy, but I would certainly pick ANY Orion product over your Cadence garbage. For the small price difference, it's only common sense to go with quality.

Wow, I guess I missed the part where I said cheap amps were high quality, you would think that I would know where I did seeing as how I'm the one that said it, but silly me, I guess I'm mistaken. So let me try again to say what it is I thought I was saying in the first place... He said that he wanted a cheap amp, so those amps were the best/cheap amps that I could think of. I've put the words that I guess I was mistaken about in bold, so that you might better grasp what it is that I'm saying, or trying to say.

Again, not quite sure when I said that it's a good idea for him to buy cheap gear, I'm pretty sure I just gave him a list of a few cheap amps. And if he were to buy it, the Cadence gear has a 3-year manufacturers warranty and the Profile has 1-year direct from Crutchfield warranty, so I'm quite sure that if they were to

he in fact will not have to spend double the money. However, I think you'll also find, had you actually done any kind of looking around before trying to flame me, that Profile is actually a decent company that makes a pretty good product for not much money and there is in fact a "senior member" of this forum that owns a Profile amp.

Still not sure where I said Cadence was the best, in fact the only reason I posted that link was because it was the cheapest amp I could find that would put out 600w RMS at 1 or 4 ohms. And when exactly did it become my Cadence garbage? I don't even own anything that's made by Cadence, it's too low of quality for my liking...

What? They're all rated for the same amount watts, whether it be at 1ohm or 4.

an amp will push out more power if its ran at 2 ohm instead of 4 ohm. This could also overheat and ruin the amp if you arent carefull with setting the gains. I do like that Orion amp though. Orion does have some very nice products. If its only a $60 difference, Id go with the Orion, but just remember that the Cadence amp also wont blow if you set the gain correctly. Basically the only real difference between a great amp and a cheap amp is that the cheap amp says it can put out 2000 watts when really can only put out maybe 800. The cheap amps will blow easier if not set up correctly. I have already owned a pyramid amp, boss,and power acustik. I currently own a soundstorm and Kole audio amp. Out of all those amps, I have never blown a single one of them. But just remember that they also cant do what the great amps can do (like the Orion).
