    Okay cool. Let me know when you find out. No need to waste your money on a amp that can't handle the load or more power than the subs can handle. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    Do you have any general idea what type I'm looking at? They are upper end subs. I know that much. And I'm just looking for a general idea.

    I would suggest a class d. They are really efficient. The only draw back to them is they are for subs only. But seeing as how you are looking for a sub amp, that's what I would suggest. Depending upon how much power the subs can handle JBL makes a 1200w and a 600w class d that are very affordable. I would check both out. They are stable to 1ohm so impedence wouldn't be a problem <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    If your speakers are high quality you might want a high quality amp class a or b though they don't carry as much power for as cheap as class d amps but the sound clarity and wattage is well worth your money class d amps tend to kick plenty of power but lack sound quality somewhat. It depends are you a "boom" kinda guy or do you wanna hear that every note for the low end bass to the highest note in your music if you do go with the class a but if you just want the bass get class d. Let me know how it goes.
