Do you know which series they are?

I know you said cheap as possible, but cheap to you may not be cheap to me.

Also, do you happen to know the internal box size?

I always had good results with Hifonics when I was into that stuff, but that was about 8-10 years ago now. I bought about 10 amps for myself and friends and they never let us down.

But we would need to know the model of the subs your wanting to power before giving you any options in amps.

Older Hifonics were great amps, but now they are built cheaply and tend to clip the signal very easily. Older ones were U.S. made, I believe, a few of them made by Zed Audio.

yeah about 3 of the ones I had had something like that "Zed" on the info plate/sticker.

And they did not look like any of the "new" ones look like.

Err, what do they say on the front of them? Should be Prime, Punch, or Power. At least, I think that's how RF works. I only know their amps and speakers.
