    What is the voice coil configuration on the sub? 2ohm DVC or 4ohm DVC?

    You're going to want to wire it like this...



    Look for an amp that does ~750 RMS x 1 @ 2ohm.

    Well you can always get somthing cheaper, but usually you have to pay more for D class, just the name of the game. JBL 600.1 is under 200, which is the cheapest amp to what your looking for (700watts). But I would pay the xtra 35bux for the USX800D...

    PS, the 800D puts out 700+ @ 2ohms...

    ~775 x 1 @ 2ohms is ideal. The 6500D would be a good choice, though try and find out what it's true specs are at 2ohm - in case it does something silly like ~900 watts or so. But even then, if you kept your gains down and didnt play volume master, I'm sure the L7 would be fine.

    that jbl looks great the more i read about it. 600w @2ohm should be enough to power my l7 sufficiently, correct? i also love how there are no wires, thats key for that install.
