Buying new amp advice

Hello All, I'm new to this site and have a question about an upcoming upgrade to my system. I have 3 12W6v2's sealed. They are currently running at 2.67 ohms off a RF 800.2. I was going to buy 3 JL 500/1's to power them but at a large cost, and electrical upgrades will be required. I only run 2 ga. currently with a 160 amp alt. I'm open to any and all sugestions... I'm looking for around 1500 rms at 2.67 ohms. I'm sort of a SQ stickler so looking for a quality amp at a decent price.

Thanks,
Paul

How about one quality amp that is 1500w rms minimum into 2 ohms? I have two left of the italian Macrom M1A1500D if you are after a stellar amplifier. It will prove to be far easier to set up, take less space and probably be a better use of the available power that you have as well.

Macrom, hmm I can't seem to find anything about them written in english. What are the specs? I've never heard of them...
