Need amp advice

Alright, i've got one sub, and I am going to get anotherone. The problem is i need a 1600 w amp pushing 800 watts *400 on each channel* that doesn't have to be bridged. basically, an 800 x 2. If anyone knows where I could find a good priced/quality one please let me know. Tried ebay and google. No help. 2ohm compatible though, and needs to be able to handle 2 dual voice coil subs.

it would be easier to get two mono amps to get that much power

i found a kicker rated at 295wrms x 2 at4 ohms

So you need 400rms X 2 not 800X2.

I would get a monoblock stable at 1 ohm; it'll be a lot less hassle than purchasing two separate amps or a two channel strong enough to crank out 400 at 2 ohms on each channel. Look into the Memphis ST1000d, JBL BP1200.1, Phoenix Tantrum 1200.1, or something by Hifonics. You should know that peak power doesn't mean much... everyone loves to rate their equipment at way more than the stuff can actually handle. Think of peak power as the point at which a subwoofer will flip out and blow up.

This cheapie would probably work well too:

I have the Kenwood KAC-9102D running to two L5s in a ported box. They bump like crazy and the amp was real cheap. It hasn't cut off yet and I'm always blarin it when I drive around in my Jimmy. I got mine from ebay. There are some other models of Kenwood mono amps like the KAC-9152D which comes with a remote and is 1-ohm stable. Some people don't like kenwood but I love my amp. Doesn't get hot like you would expect either.
