Ok, I have a choice here, and I want the best bang for my buck. I'm looking at the Zapco (is it the 9.0? the big one), the Fosgate 30001bd, and the Eclipse DA7232. He says the Fosgate is probably the best bang for the buck, what do you guys think? I already have the DA7232, but I have a friend that's willing to buy it from me, so I'll need a new amp... And that Zapco seems prett cool, and expensive. What would be the ultimate setup? I have little experience with both Eclipse and Zapco amps, and I'm a little weary of the Fosgates... Thanks.

Yes, the Eclipse will fall right in the middle - closer to the RF in price but closer in performance to the Zapco... Keep with the Eclipse, or just keep yours, and make your friend "get his own"... posted_image Personally, I wouldn't even include the RF in with these other two OUTSTANDING performers.

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."

ROFL! I know it, Zapco is just sooooooo sexy. Everyone wants one, or has one! I doubt there's anyone that doesn't want one! What would be a good Zapco to get for these to monster subs? You guys have me leaning towards the Zapco... LOL!

Thanks guys. I guess I'll keep 'er. He bought one of the subs, but I made profit off it, so I'll have to order another... I've got this small ass town wanting Eclipse! I have about three other people that want one of my subs! Guess I'll have to buy more... Heh! Thanks again!

Also, what would you recommend for one sub? This is for a friend, and he doesn't want to spend a lot....
