yeah, there is no "best" brand but if you were to give a budget, im sure there would be a lot of people here willing to tell you what some good choices within that range would be

You can probably find an Xtant X1001 on Ebay for under $400. Will do 1,000 RMS at 2 ohms. Very nice amp - used to have one.

there is no way you are goin to get a new amp for that much general rule for a good amp is a buck a watt for a good amp you can get cheaper ones for less i have seen 1000 watt amps for about 500 and do you need 2 ohms per sub like do you need a 2 ohm amp or a 1 ohm amp your goin to need to know

Or so it used to be, nowdays (well I heard it about 2 years ago) is that you pay about 45cents a watt, that is US dollars but not much difference anyways. Prices of amps went way down since the mass acceptance of Class D amps that are way cheaper to produce and buy

And they're cheaper to produce because the cost of raw materials (aluminum and copper) have sky rocketed?
