specs?

probably one of the best amps on the market now a days is almost any Kicker amp.....it is usually a good idea to match a brand sub with the same brand amp because a lot of times companies build their amps/speakers on what their amps/speakers can handle/do....

this would be a good amp for powering 2 of those IF they are wired so they produce 2 ohms at the amp:

this one IF they are wired so they produce 4 ohms at the amp:

you are wanting to power 2 amps......that is a mono subwoofer amp...meaning it will only push 1 sub...

a mono amp will push more than one sub.... i ran 4 12"s off a memphis 1100.1
that zx400.1 or w/e is only 200rms. i had a kenwood 900w amp that i ran 2 12"s off of and it had more power to push another

check out memphis, alpine, fosgate,

a memphis 1100.1 or 1000.1 w/e it is now would be a good amp for sure! 1100w at 1 ohm 800w at 2 and 600w at 4ohms if i remember right

all the amps on this list will power your subs with just enough power. Too get a 2ohm total load with both speakers you'll need to wire each in parallel (++ & --) drops each speaker to 1ohm then wire both speakers in series to the amp (amp+ to +sp1- to +sp2- to -amp) raising the total load back to 2ohms.

a mono sub amp will power 1+ any # of speakers it just depends on how you wire it and the amount of power the amp can make at final ohm load

(amp+ to +sp1- to +sp2- to -amp)

what does that mean? its not just hooking up positive to positive and negative to negative? how do u connect sp1- to +sp2 inside the box?

The audiobahn a8000v can run your subs at 2ohms at 800 RMS. That means 400 to each. PRETTY SWEET! lol

its really up to you. I went with audiobahn cause my truck is blue and the a8000v makes a blue glow inside truck and I get good bass from subs. Check out realm of excursion forums, those guys are nuts! when it comes to bass.
