    would a 420 x 1 @ 2ohms amp work or would that be to little power?

    2124's --- smells to me like an mtx 801D also available at crutchfield.com....



    .... and the gods all said "forever cody and vince will be locked in battle over mtx versus fosgate... andthey will never get mad hunnies because they'll be too busy fighting over it".

    how about 600x1@2ohms, sorry to keep asking, i'm a little low on cash flow, the mtx and fosgate a little too much for me right now.

    Is this closer to your price range?

    http://www.carstereotime.com/default...tid=XI-CYCLOPS

    Hifonics Cyclops-XI 700W x 1 @ 2 ohms

    $399.00 isn't too bad of a price either. That will defintly power two 2124's..

    Hifonics 700 watt-$280
    MTX 800 watt amp-$309 Rockford Fosgate 800 watt amp-$339
    in order of what i would get(but not considering price)
    Rockford Fosgate
    hifonics
    mtx
    and to answer your question, a 600 amp will work, but not as good
    i would get the hifonics if you dont get the RF
    hifonics is a great brand and very cheap

    600 will work, but again "not as good"

    you can always go and get yoruself a JBL BP600.1 -- that thing will do like 6 or 650 and costs like 170 ebay.

    Eh, they aren't cheap. That is just a really good price. Retail for that amp is usually between 600-800 bucks and probably worth every penny.

    try ikesound.com they have the jbl 600.1 amp. i had that amp pushing 2 12" mtx 6000s the amp rocked. i want to get it to push my polk 10mm but it would only put out 300 at 4 ohm. the jbl 1200.1 is around 250 or so new on ebay. can get the 600.1 for 120 used or like 170 new on ebay. jbl is cheap price wise but its worth every penny and then some. you wont be disappointed.
    looking for a good amp and maybe some subs!

    I have a c500.1 currently and keep hearing about paring 2x MM2124's up with this 801d... currently cc has 801d's for $320. Would I gain anything from switching? I love my C500.1 and 2x MM2124's don't get me wrong but If i can hear a considerable I might consider switching.

    Thanks

    Adam

    well, the 801D puts out 300 more watts than the 500.1
    the 500.1 is a cleaner amp though
    but for subs, its not that big of a deal
    but for mm124s, id get a rockford fosgate bd1000
    youre putting half the amount of power to those subs that they can handle
