i was kinda puzzled cuz the guy that bought it said that it was kinda "light" for a 1500w amp..i dunno if he was getting stupid wit me or what..
but i want a new amp, power like 1500w...should i get the same one? cuz it pushed my boobies lovely...heh

well i dont know what you did to that amp, but you must have screwed something up. Those amps usually hold up pretty damn well in most of the setups i have seen. And if you wired it to 1 ohm, the brutus puts out 1500 watts @ 1ohm which should have been plenty for a pair of ses. Their rms is only 600 a piece. And the brutus is also a class d amp. So before you buy another amp, i think you should look into what you did wrong to fry that amp so damn quickly.

JBL bp1200.1

has put out almost 1400w by several car magazines that tested it.

rated 1200 @ 1 and 2 ohm. :)
:stupid: would be perfect if the subs are 600 rms each

Check out the crossfire 1000D it puts out 1000 watts @ 12 volts at I think 1 ohm.

that's what i did wrong wu501..heh..stupid me..i just didnt know about the level gain matching thats why..i've never heard of it untill i got the amp in my hands...what i did caused major hard ass clipping..and it was set like that for 3 weeks straight, and with those 3 weeks of it working..i pounded the shit out of it..heh i cant seem to get enough bass..i dunno im a bass head!
