    1500w rms mono amp...depends on ohm of subs..if dual 2 get a 2 ohm stable amp that does 1500w @ 2 ohm if dual 4 ohm subs get an amp that does 1500w rms @ 1 ohm

    yes, your going to have to splice/join the wires from both subs correctly to make the correct ohm load to fit the neg and pos temrinal.

    find a used kicker kx1200.1, ed nine.1, pg tarntrum 1200.1. all great amps. look into dei 1100d i belive? hifonics have a bad rep as they mess up and are overrated. also PA is overrated and there's mixed reviews about PA.

    you want a mono block amp also. all the ones i listed are mono block. wire to 1ohm to get the needed power for those subs.

    Avoid the pyle, its garbage. Big time. I STRONGLY reccommend carting yourself down to a local stereo shop, and having them reccomend something, and install it for you, I think that'd be your best option. That way you know its in right, and the gains are all set properly, and its set up with the right ohm load. HOWEVER, if you are bound and determined to try and do it yourself, heres an amp. Go get it.

    ( I woulda reccomended a kicker too, niiiiiiiice amps, just so much more expensive for what you need)
