Would this be good sub amp combo? on ebay need fast responses

OK, I really need some bass guys. Would this be a good combo?

this amp

--(on crutch)
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-jjpefv9...kenwood+kac829
theese subs
http://cgi.ebay.com/PIONEER-TS-SW254...QQcmdZViewItem

On crutch in the description it says 150wats x2 at 2 ohms. In the sub's description it I think says 250w RMS at 4 ohms. Says nothin about 2 ohms, so could I make that set up work? Quick responses pleas guys! thanks!!

The sub will sound good in a nice box. But I would look for a mono amp.

I would go with Directed. I have had VERY good results with their amps. I believe I bought my 900watt Mono class D off ebay a while back. Great quality in my opinion. It pushed my 15 perfectly.

How's this amp?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TESTE...35474669QQrdZ1

My friend has had a bazooka powered tube sub for over a year now with no probs. It says 300watts at 4 ohms

and in the auction it says........

# 1000W Max Music Power
# 250W Nominal Power Handling
I believe on crutch it says 250w rms at 4 ohms.

So my question is... would that amp be to much? Does anyone have any other suggestions? Looking for a low price yet quality. Thanks

Voltage: 10.5 -14 v
Power Output: 500 watts
Frequency Response: 20-250
Max Power Output 500 watts
Power 4 OHM 300
Power 2 OHM 500
Im assuming that sub is running at 4 ohm.. which means you are only going to give it 300 watts max power. honestly, i would stay away from bazooka..

this amp will serve ya better (its also pioneer). Its rated at 500 watts @ 4 ohm and [email protected] 4 ohm

Cool, thanks. Anyone have any other suggestions? As of now I think I'll probably go with that Pioneer amp ranger02 4x4 suggested.

Oh, I'd kinda like to find one with one of those bass controllers.

How's this amp. Seems to be the older version of the one posted above. (I'm kinda on a slim budget)

Would it fit in a regular cab? It says mounting depth of 5 3/4" and I don't wanna have to scoot the seats up any, either side. I know the pioneer would fit no problem but the alpine's questionable. For now could I just get some help on selecting an amp for the Pioneer sub? Thanks.

Or... I could build my own and not have to pay $75 bucks for something that i could build for a fraction of the cost.

Ok. well I think i'll just got with the pioneer sub. Question is what amp should I get. Since no one's really telling me if the pioneer I posted is good or not I might just go with that and if it is ****ty who gives a ****?
