    hey dude...

    well it depends on the impedance of your woofers... singel 4 ohm coil? dual 4 ohm coil? single 8 ohm coil?


    my suggestions -->

    if single 4 ohm coil...
    - wire in parallel
    - amp: mtx 4250D, JBL BP 300.1, RFPunch 301M, RFPower 351M, Alpine MRD-M300
    all will give you between 300 and 350 x 1 at 2 ohms so 150 - 175 per sub.

    if dual 4 ohm coil or single 8 ohm coil...
    -parallel down to 4 ohms (single 8) // series then parallel down to 8 (dual 4)
    -amp:
    [300 - 350 x 1 bridged - so 150 - 175 or so per sub]
    RF Punch 301S, Pioneer GMX-972, Alpine MRV-T420, Kicker KX300.2
    [400+ x 1 bridged - so 200+ per sub]
    Kicker KX400.2, RF Punch 401S, RF Power 351S, mtx 302/8302

    The power 351S and the mtx 302 are probably overkill, thats a personaly preference... I'd lean toward the Kicker 400.2 if i was being "normal" about it.

    only companies like sony and jensen use "peak power" to sell their products b/c it is literally useless
    rms power is the only thing you ever need to know

    gotta love the sony amps that are plastered w/ a big "800 w" sticker -- then u realize they're like 350 rms... and then u even further realize that at their true rated 350 they in fact start to overheat and go into protect like its no body's business.
