Hey.. I know people are ragging on the MTX JH but the ones I got are 800watts a piece.. and I run them with a MTX TA4501 Class D mono One channel amp 2 ohm. They have the new thunder elite series amps out now.. or you can go with a rockford fosgate amp. As they say.. you get what you pay for. I saw they have Jackhammers that only are 300watts each..and if you hook up a cheap amp, then it won't sound good. Good luck

OOOh... Can I touch you? 800 watts a piece, huh? What does that mean to you? Does that mean they are somehow "better" than my 600 watt 10" TCSounds TC1000 woofers, or that my woofers are somehow "better" than the "300 watt" Jokehammers?? I can tell you have MUCH to learn, grasshopper, were you to answer "Yes" to any part of that question. 1: The 800 watts number that you are so proudly tossing about means NOTHING in how loud or accurately they will play. Zero. 2: Yes, you DO get what you pay for, and in the case of both the Jokehammers (or perhaps Polkhammers - they're both worth as little as you can pay that much for) OR the Rockford Fosbreak garbage, you just don't get the very deserved kiss.

Uh, huh... Sure it does. If that is TRULY the case, then you need to be on the competition circuit, because you OBVIOUSLY have the secret to BEYOND theoretical maximum outputs for minimal inputs.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

i think everybody who has a system that can make their ears tingle also thinks that they need to replace their windows with plexi. my rule of thumb is if you can stand to sit in your car with the system up then your windows are just fine
i am an idiot

Even if you can't stand to sit in the vehicle with the system turned up, chances are your windows will even then still be OK.
