Well forget that idea.. it's toast.. So I'll be looking at JL, JBL, Rockford they have some pretty sweet amps on Ebay for under $300 shipped with Warranty..There is one JL that I like and has 500W RMS.. too many amps..

Good to know. Question how many subs are you running? And what amp is it? I have 2 400W 10" subs and was thinking around 500W RMS, a class-d mono amp, as I bridge the 2 subs together onto one channel.

JL AUDIO 500/1 SLASH SERIES *th-up* It is! Under $400 Shipped with warranty and this amp pushes 500W RMS constant between 1.5-4 ohms:)

Nice just ordered one. $360US shipped..I might have to buy bigger subs, I only have 800W peak, i have a feeling this amp will end there life lol If I had the cash I'd go with a pair of 10W7's with the box made for the E36 from JL.

w7's are kick ass but made more for quality......from the shows i've bin to and cars i've listened to w6's are louder and still have amazing sound quality. I have that box for the e36 it looks amazing. I also have the trunk lit up in blue neon and my amps custom mounted to a piece of carpeted mdf that i mounted on the roof of the trunk

500/1 will be to small to pwr a pair of 10W7's.
also the 500/1 pwr is under rated and its overpriced.
it usually benched @ 575MS-669RMS @ 14.4V/4ohms
which is more then enough to blow ur current subs if u have the right wiring.

BTW if u wanna give the sony amp away, ill gladly take it off ur hands.

I don't have a Sony amp, I was going to buy one at CT for cheap. Instead opted for this route. I think it's a soundstream 1000W peak, paid $50 for it. If I was in T.O. I'd be more then happy to give it to you. If you know anyone coming to Ottawa let me know and I can give it to them.

as for the 10W7's, I know I read into that and I would need a second 500/1, I really can't afford all that stuff right now, plus I would need to upgrade my front componets and my rear speakers :( But it's so tempting.

I also have 2 other Orion subs at home that I know can handle this type of power but the box is too big to fit in our E36's.. E30 no problem the opening is big enough.

328IScreamer: I'm liking your setup, I might have to copy it lol. Do you have the RBC-1? I can't find anyone in Ottawa that carries it..Would someone in Toronto have one? and EBAY is about $40-50USD Shipped...

I have one that I have bintrying to sell for quite a while. It looks awsome if you custom mount it somewhere but I don't have the time. If you wanna set something up I can sell it to you cheaper than what you'd get it on ebay for

I got a brand new 1000.1 watts rms kicker amp. I got it for my car but now my car is gone.(crashed it) It comes with bass nob,allen key and the birth sheet which actually reads 1200.1+ watts rms. Its a massive amp and will power anything u feed it. I am selling ti for $400. I paid $970 for it from the audio store by my house.
