I'd go sundown for the amps. The SAZ 1500 is a badass amp for the sub you are wanting and I would get that for sure. As for the highs sundown would also be a good pick but you don't necessarily have to match the same brand for the highs.

the only plus i can see on the audison is more power for the mids/highs and a single amp.

You are correct its just a single all in one amp.


Id pass on the 3 channel amp. Read the product description on the bottom of the page. They are saying it will put out up to 250Wrms per channel for the speakers and up to 900W @ 2ohms for the sub.

Both of those subs you listed can take more power than rated if you set amp correctly.

$400 for the sundown SAZ 1500D amp is a great deal I would buy that. I have a SAE 1200D and love it. Start with your budget and go from there.

If you went with the DC lvl4 a SAE 1200D would be a good match and I got mine for $210 shipped on ebay awhile back with that blowout special but now they are hard to find. You could in the past find them on db-r site but were refurbished for $300-$350 lol. The sae 1200d will put out almost the same amount of power as the SAZ 1500D but the SAZ is built a lil stronger. Sae 1200D has 5 30amp fuses vs the 1500D with 4 40amp fuses.

Well Audison is near the best of the best when it comes to SQ amps. That's right below there top of the line VRx series. I myself was never a fan of running a sub and main power supply under the same hood, regardless of how well each monoblock is isolated. That being said, you can't go wrong with Sundown. They are a well regarded company with a great product. In fact I'm leaning the same direction. I just purchased an Arc 4200SE and was going to purchase the 2300SE to match, but I'm halfway leaning towards the SAZ1500 instead for sub duties. As far as front stage amps go, I would recommend you pick up a 4 channel. Reason I say this is from your earlier posts, you mentioned wanting some growing room. Going with a 4 channel now gives you the ability to bridge it and allow yourself tons of headroom, while having the option of running an active setup down the road without having to change out amps. :imo

^^^ There was an Arc 1000.1 for sale on one of the forums a few days ago for 300 NIB. If you're going Arc, that's a great deal.
