First off, are you gonna run them in a sealed or vented enclosure?

Second: Do you have the Big 3 done?

Third, A true 2000w amp is gonna cost way more than your stated budget. Don't be fooled by amps that state they put out that much power but only cost between $200-$800.

Here is an example of a true 2000w amp and look at the price.

You can get a HiFonics Brutus 2200W amp that will fit in your price range.

I'm currently running a 15" CVR off a profile AP1000M rated for 500w rms x 1@ 2 ohms. It only cost me $120 shipped and I haven't had a problem with it yet. It gives the sub plenty of power so i'm confident it does rated power or atleast very close to it. You could run 4 of those for $480 shipped and get a damn loud setup. I'm really startin to like profile's amps for budget installs. Hence the reason I used one myself. Just make sure your electrical system is up to par and you'll be fine.

You can get 2000 watts amps for your price range as long as you dont buy authorized search for these on ebay

You can get brand new HIFONICS XX-HERCULES amps which are 2000 watts @ 1ohm for under $500
Or you can get the HIFONICS XX-Colossus amps which are 3200 watts @ 2ohms for around $700

You can also look at The Crossfire VR2000D ive seen it on ebay brand new for around $700

Also another one would be the US Amps USA-2000 it does 2000 watts @ 2ohm for about $800

there are plenty more I just dont have the time to list them all

I have two of those 15's on a single Kicker 1200.1 and it sounds good.

Let me know if you want one. I have one that I can't get enough power to, so I can't play it like it's capable of.

As already stated, you will need a good quality amp that is actually capable of pushing 2000W RMS. A Pyramid 2000W amp isnt going to do the trick. If you are planning to use CompVR subs, I would suggest you stay within the same company and go with a Kicker KX2500.1 This amp is capable of 2500W RMS @ 2ohm load.
For any amplifier to actually output 2000W RMS you will need a charging system capable of running 145 amps, not including the other amps used for your mids and highs. This usually suggests that you run a multiple battery setup with a high output alternator. Personally I would suggest 2-3 SVR Batteries and a 180-200 amp alternator.
Spending high dollar on a quality amp alone doesnt do any good if you dont have the charging system to give the amp the current it needs to produce high output wattages you desire. If you are planning to go with a big system make sure you upgrade the electrical system (batteries / alternator) or you might as well stick with a 500-1000W RMS setup because thats about all you will get out of a stock charging system.

Staying with the same company has no other benefits other than preference. Since it appears he's looking for a low budget SPL install, bias should be thrown out twoards companies that are considered lower end products (i.e. Power Acoustik, Profile, Lanzar etc.)
