Kenwood or Hifonics??

Looking to buy a new amp with about 1000RMS in either 1 or 4 ohms.
So far I have narrowed it down to:

Hifonics ZXi-1008- 2CH 1000RMS bridged at 4ohm.
Kenwood KAC-9104D- Mono 900Rms at 1ohm.

I can get either amp for about the same price. Which amp would I be better off going with?

Neither one. The Kenwood is very over-rated at 900 watts. The Hifonics will not give you the damping factor or the efficiency of a mono amp.
I'll assume that you have a dual 2 ohm voicecoil? Do you have any other choices? What is your budget? I'm sure that one of the sponsors here can help you. Maybe talk to Forbidden...

MY budget is about 200-250$. I really don't have much money to spend, I am just trying to get something for now.

The other ones I had in mind was: Hifonics TXI7508, Power Acoustik BAMF-20001D

If you have any other suggestions I would apprecate it.

Also do you think either of these are good?

Indeed. Sundown blows all that other crap out of the water, and the price cannot be matched.
