You seem to have posted in the wrong forum... pass labs is mostly class A designs, so your criteria of power vs price does not add up in here. You could make something which burns 900W and delivers something in the order of 100W, but not for $200.

Look at the retail prices for pass labs stuff and you'll see that a little more cash brings you no where near 2x900W, even if you account for a comfortable profit margin - please be reasonable!

If you want to look at big stuff you can find a few links in this thread on a project in the order of magnitude that you are proposing:

For $200 you can propably get 10 of the blue cans shown in the pictures, but then you'll have too few cans and no money left...

I would recommend finding a class-D kit, if the only thing you want is to burn your 900W speakers.
