Default Best 16v amp options?

Need around 10k clamped @ 18v. Right now I'm torn between a pair of the older sundown saz3500's and Soundqubed 3500's. A single large amp is also an option but I'm not looking to spend more than $1k total for amp(s)

Those amps you are looking at are probably your best option

That's what I figured. Now I just need to figure out what the bare minimum I can get away with for electrical


I can't find real world clamped numbers for either amp at 18v. I'm going to assume they're both in the 6k range

What are you going to wire to? Getting 10k clamped outta those amps your going to have to wire .5ohm strapped and have low rise.

they're a little too rich for my blood. my front stage is costing me about $5k so I'm trying to get the best bang for the buck with the substage. I've had really good luck with older sundown amps and audioque stuff
