I've already bought two BMF 15's rated at 750 watts max.  So the question is, should I buy the Crossfire amp rated at 250W x 1 RMS at 4 ohm, 1000W x 1 at 1 ohm

• Tested Power: 1332 Watts RMS at 14.4V

or should i get the Brutus 1605D rated at

1 x 550 Watts @ 4 Ohms

• 1 x 1100 Watts @ 2 Ohms
• 1 x 1600 Watts @ 1 Ohms

?

I really don't know too much about the Hifonics amp, but it looks to be much more powerful.  Which would be better for the subs I've chosen?

it says 750 watts max on the acaraudio website.  I've already bought one and if I remember correctly it is 350 RMS, 700 peak, and then 1400 somethin, which didnt make much sense to me.  I thought that there was only RMS and peak, but it said somethin else on the box.  Im bout to go home, so I can tell you in bout 15 minutes

ok so does anybody have a preference one way or the other?  I can save about $250 if I get the Hifonics amp, but I don't know if it is high-quality or anything like that.

umm the subs can be switched to either 8 or 2 ohms...and they are single voice coil.  It says that the actual resistive load (I don't know what that is) is 6.6

if you wire the subs at a total of 4 ohms the 1605D would be ok i think @ 1 ohm it will be to much i think the crossfire amp will work well @ 1 ohm you can also look into other amps and if you want to save some money check out www.ikesound.com i think you should look for something thats 800 rms
