Amp Decision

I got a 15" L7 kicker sub n i just blew my amp now i am looking for a new amp that will be powerful and is a pretty long lasting amp

the 3 amps i am looking at are:

Kicker zx10001.1
Ultimate T3 1000D
Clarion DPX11500

i know the ultimate is way more powerfull then both the others but...i just blew an amp that was a Ultimate T3 500D so i was kinda of worried about buying another 1... if anyone has a good amp that they think would work good and is not to expensive please let me have some ideas thanks for reading

alpine mrd1005 or primiere D3000spl. both are 1000 w rms at 2 ohm.
and the 15L7 is rated 1000 w rms, so, is it 4 ohm dvc? OR is it 2 ohm dvc and you wired in parallel? Is that why you blew the amp?

Yep. Some good choices there. An Alpine MRD-M1005 would be a perfect match I've personally ran that setup. As well the Ultimate 1000D would be good. I even threw roughly 2kwrms at one and it took it for 20 mins straight then melted. That was without a proper breakin, only had it installed for litterally one day haha. Yeah I was a lil rough on it and I paid the price!

why not check out a US Amps XT4000D.

Similar pricing points, good durability and boatloads of power.

Take a look at the Lanzar OPTI2000D. It puts out 1100rms into 2 ohms...
