I don't know the fuse ratings for the Quantum Audio. From the website I know its 3000 watts rms @ 1 ohm and is class A/B.
The Hifonics and MTX are class D. I figure if I just get 300 amps worth of charging power than I will be okay (better to over-guess than under-guess for the alternator).

Not necessarily. The Quantum amp would need a total of 300A for fuses. If it has anything less than that, it will not be able to put out 3,000w. I highly recommend finding out what fuse rating it has, but personally I would just pass on the Quantum. Hifonics would probably be the better route to go.

So yes to Hifonics, no to Quantum.
Any other amp recommendations around the same price ranges as these amplifiers?
Thanks for all your help donpisto :)

I saw a quantum amp the other day. supposedly 1,000 watts or so. it was lighter than the monster energy drink i was sipping on at the time. piece of junk if you ask me.
I havent seen much of the new hifonics stuff, but it seems to be a great bang for your buck

I'm pretty sure now I'm going with two Hifonics bxi1606d's.  

I've considered MTX, but multiple people have that in my town; I just want something out of the norm.

A few posts ago donpisto asked about the fuse sizes for the Quantum Audio amp.  I don't have those, but i do have the size for the Hifonics bxi1606d:  two 80 amp fuses a piece.  Does this help me any? 

Now I have my mind set:  Fi BTL 15" & (2) Hifonics bxi1606d's to power it. (building my own box to spec).  

If I used the current calculator right, would i need about 223 amps of charging power just for these two amps (3200 watts @ 14.4 volts = 222.222...)?

ok to clear things up on the quantum amps they are rated at peak not rms, half of peak is rms. another thing to remember quantum audio is a sister co to db drive. i carry both line so any questions hit me up at SPLaudio78@hotmail.com .

i wouldnt talk til you actually listen to a quantum amp they are great budget -ground pounder amps. only the ignorant talks about something they know nothing about...

i got people breaking 140dbs of 1 12" and a 1500d  750rms $220 amp. i have sold quite a few and have had 0 problems.

not tring to bash you just ur slamming a product that you know nothing about. the amp you held was only 500rms. i only sell what i 100% believe in, i dont want returns or unhappy customers. if you want higher end db drive for the win but quantum audio is alot better than anything in it's price range i know of personally...

I think I'm still going with the Hifonics. My friend had a Hifonics amp and a MTX 7500 and it sounded great to me.
Was my calculation right for the amount of current draw from those amps?
