Upgrade wiring to some 0g, big 3, and a nice AGM battery under the hood. Such as a Deka, XS Power etc.

See how that does before buying anything else. Execution Audio is a vendor on here, they're selling nice 0g power wire for $50 shipped for 50ft. You can use that for your whole vehicle if your on a budget.

For that price you have a lot of options for a nice 2000 watt amp I would look on here for a used one

Most vendors on here can hook you up with a 2k amp under $600.

Crescendo audio 2k is $480
Soundqubed 2200 is $429

Not sure on other companies prices but those are pretty competitively priced.

Yup, I'd recommend them. Ran a pair of 3500s with zero issues. They seem more busy lately but I'm sure they can get you squared away.

Soundqubed used to be Audioque, which was a vendor here. This amp is nearly identical. Just to let ya know. Can't go wrong either way.

Basically i just want to get as loud as i can without pouring too much money into batteries and alts. My plan was 2 Type R's wired to 1 ohm on a 2k amp...
