If you think Kicker will not sell to you directly or through their reps. then I know for sure Zapco will not either. I been in the car audio business for some 16 years and I carried just about every major name brand on the market like US Amps, XTANT, MMATS, FOSGATE, Soundstream, etc.
One thing I recommend is to search the eBay listings, some of those sellers may be a distributor themselves. Talk to them and work out something. A lot of them will sell to you for even less if bought in bulk. Having a reseller permit is a major plus in this business. Go to uBid and other auction sites, check out some of their listings, I have bought a few things on uBid that were much cheaper and resold them on other sites and locally.
