Default great amp for JL W7

Help needed!! I am in the market to replace my current subwoofer amp. I need an amp that will supply "great" power for a JL Audio W7 13 inch subwoofer. Any/All suggestions are welcomed. Thanks in advance.

look up the definition of "headroom" as it pertains to amplifiers. It will clue you in.

Peavey CS4000....bench tested to 4400watts.

You can damage a sub with an under powered amp faster than overpowering. You need the headroom with that sub.

That's what I'm talking about! Peavey is what I use as well. I have a Trio of CS800X's. Very good amps.

I just got a qsc rmx 4050hd for 1300 from proaudiostar. Just called up and they gave me a much better price than on their site....it was 1500 on their site.

Plenty of headroom (on 240 volts)
