Do you have these subs already or are they in the crosshairs as a prospective purchase? They are drastically overrated for their power handling as well (and responsible for the global shortage of chrome).

That made me LOL.

If you have not purchased them yet, please pm some of the vendors on here before you do buy.

Then buy the better quality amp now.....if you are planning that far ahead, get the amp that matches the quality of the next round of subs. Any amp will power the ones you have now.......

If nothing else it saves you buying another one next year.
