    Infinity, Kenwood, or Hifonics amp?

    This is directed to those who know car audio systems. Don't try to bullshit me I know the differences I just want personal opinions from people who have dealt with these different brands.

    Currently I have two Kenwood amps pushing 1500 watts to my subs and 1200 to my car audio. I just ordered dual MTX Jackhammer 12" subs to add to my system. I'm taking out my Hifonics 15" to run the two jacks and a 12" terminator. I'm debating between which brand I should order a 2500 watt amp from, they're all amazing names in the amp field of car audio, but I can't make up my mind.

    Anyone with experience with any of these amps? Any excess clipping at a 50 Hz constant, interference with UTP cabling?

    If you can afford it man, I'd go with the Fosgate t2500, it'll provide a clean and constant 2500 rms at both a 2ohm or 1ohm load. If not my experience with hifonics hasn't been bad, just make sure whatever you're getting will be CEA 2006 certified.

    I'm definitely going to go with the t2500, it'll leave me with room to add another 8" 2ohm mono sub. Now I need to figure out whether or not I should do a custom bandpass or ported box I like the bandpass boxes but they only slam at certain frequencies, and I won't have enough room in my trunk for a tri-sub BP enclosure. I'll probably stick with a dual porten enclosure for the jacks and do a BP single for the terminator. Any thoughts on the box brudduh?

    I've decided on the t2500-1bdcp for 1600, got a deal on one for 1100 new because I helped a buddy wire his system and his dad owns an exotics garage and actually has one in stock that no ones bought.

    Now I need to decide on how to do my enclosure. No sealed enclosures I love the BP but the ported would be so much more convenient also can't decide on whether I want to build a tri-12" ported or a dual and a single, if I do the tri-enclosure I'll need to set up the subs to be facing different directions I make them fit. I might just removed the backseat from my neon and build a custom 5.8 HDF material box with foam rubber insulation on a 2.6 grain particle interior, maybe a plexiglass wall for protection, I can't decide

    If you wont be using your trunk or backseats just plexiglass off your trunk had have your subs fire into the cabin.

    I was actually thinking about that, I'd setup a steel grate over the caps for protection and then do a massive port for the trunk with a tri-split cutoff about two feet in with 3 14" tunnels in the midway plate. I might go with a 2000 watt mono flock instead if the t2500 also, connecting the subs series style. Haven't really decided, multi-channel amps suck a lot of power and lak impedance with parallel wiring, which is what I'd rather boost.
