I've had numerous TS and X-Force amps. I personally like the TNT series from X-Force. The TNT350HD would be a good one for it.

Agree with Binrat on this. Those TNT amps are a great value for performance but don't knock TS either.

Im running a MF 350 here and its a good amp...
Ive had it now about 4 years now I guess...

But its been used mostly on a power supply and used as a driver, does a great job....think one of these would be the best bang for the bucks, just my .02...

Any amp with less than eight 100 watt output devices should not be considered.

i had a 93t kicking into a ts 500 and it was a great combination.the radio was doing around 80 watts.so that would be my pick.like binrat said,the tnt amps are good too.
