habeba, i have 2 kappa 10.1's that i need the amp for, and yes, even though it is their product, the rep. told me that the infinity 1211a is a good choice of amp. he said it would be running 400rms to each sub if bridged at 4 ohms. so that makes mne think that the amp should be good also because it is the same brand as the subs i have. thump, i only plan on running the amp to the subs. i am getting a new HU (possibly the Alpine IVA-D100 or IVA-W200) and im not sure if i am even gopnna get new speakers anytime soon. so yeah, the amp is only running to the subs and thats it. not to the speakers. Thats why i am looking into a mono amp.

Ya it would get 400 rms at 4 ohm to each...but you will be running two 4 ohm subs in parrallel so it will be a 2 ohm load and will be 1300 rms soooo 650rms per channel....and that is double the rms

Then it will be 8 ohm with series and it will only get like 212 watts. You can only run then 2 or 8 ohm.

What about this amp? I think you might have showed this one to me already... This one seems good to me.

Its not a mono amp like you wanted, but it will work jst fine. You can get that amp cheaper at other stores. My friend had a smaller version of this amp and it held up very good for him and the next person that got it.

I would go about 400-600 watts on those subs... They are not meant for High output... It sucks that you couldnt get those w6's in Im sure that there could have been an application for them in there but oh well... I would check into an Autotek mm1400.1 its perfect foy your application u would give the subs 500watts at a 2 ohm load to the amp. I know a couple of the dealers for Maxxsonics so I can see what i can do for you if you like?

Well, i narrowed it down to 2 amps... The Infinity 1211a and the Profile AP2000. One is a mono, the other, a 2-channel. I really feel like getting the Infinity. Reason being that it would match the subs and that the representative told me that the amp is the right match for the subs. The Profile seems like a good amp to me that will put out just the right amount of power as well. I think that all amps are under-rated. So instead of pushing 320w RMS per channel, i think it'll be pushing 350-360. So the Profile also seems like the right match. So there, I am stuck in the middle lol. But we have gotten somewhere.

How much are you looking to spend on the amp and then i can give u a better suggestion on amps.. The Infinity would match up well with the subs but That Profile isnt anything special

Well, i dont wanna spoend more than 500$. Thats why i am looking more so at the infinity amp because it is a great match. My thinking is that since my subs are infinity, why shouldnt my amp be infinity? Right? But if you said you might have better amps for me, talk to me. But dont forget, I want roughly 320-400w RMS going to each sub. I dont want anything more than 400 please.
