JL Audio 1200/1 HD or Rockford Fosgate T1500?

So I just purchased 2 brand new JL audio 12W6 subs, and I am having a hard time deciding what amplifier to get. Im stuck deciding between the JL Audio 1200/1 HD or the Rockford T1500. The JL is really expensive but would it be worth it? Money is not a big issue but there is a decent price difference between the two.

Personally, I would go with the JL. There's a good amount more technology put into it to ensure you're always getting the 1200 watts vs the rockford.

the HD will be better suited if your running a air of w6's.
I have personally run a 1200/1 hd on 2 12" W6's and been very happy with the results.

You should be incredibly pleased from the overall output, small chasis, efficiency and of course sound quality from the HD amplifiers.

That's a steal of a deal to who ever bought it.

jl c2 comps + coax

and putting in:
