Their website and the boxes they come in say 680 @ 2 ohms @14.4V and 950 @ 1 ohm @ 14.4V. We ve installed about 3 of them recently and they are pretty impressive.

Yes, it´s a very good brand, the Rubicon series it´s very good and they do rated power @ 14v , not like the XXX series wich does at 16v.

unless your right into car audio no one knows about soundstream so everyone passes over them because "they've never heard of them" so most people stick to name brands (RF, Kicker...) yet a soundstream usually does better then rated for much less $$$ unlike many of the name brands that dont even do rated power

I only found one offer for the Rub 1.800 http://www.ebay.com/...=item3374ebc075, but i guess you to go a model higher, you get watt´s and save money if you go with the
Rub 1.1000 http://www.onlinecar...m_RUB11000D.asp

I guess you pimp your budget and get this one http://www.onlinecar...m_REF11000.aspx, there realy nice ones,
maby you can get a cheaper (maby used) offer. 300 is a damn good price, looked E-bay before and there was noone for this price.

If you will hold the budget you can get a Tarantula 1.1300 for the $, but i can´t say what´s realy better on them.

The guessed reference series is realy a amp for sq sound with power.

I gotta rub 1.1000 on a soundstream x3 (not nearly the power it needs) and it pushes the sub pretty damn good, granted I have the big 3 install and a second battery, but it sounds damn good. Lookin to upgrade to the rub 1.2500d, anyone know anything about the rub 1.2500d?

I had a Rubicon 1600.1 and it had some punch I was running it @2Ohms on pioneer 12 spl 5000 and it used to pound the crap out of it. Now I'm looking to get the soundstream xxx 10000d but I was wondering if its a good amp or should I get a AQ 3500 instead :)
