    amp for 2 600 rms dual voice coils

    ok, bought a pair of 10" high excursions now that are dual voice coil at 4 ohm. They can run at either 2 or 8 ohm. They are 600 watt rms. What do I need to look for in an amp? What, in your opinion, would be a good amp for a decent price. Blew the $ on subs and box so money is a factor. Would like to stay around $200 street price for the amp. thanks

    If you have two dual 4 ohm voice coil subs, you cannot run them at 2 or 8, you can run them at 1 or 4 ohms. For that price, I would look into a JBL 1200.1 and run it at 1 ohm. I'm not sure if you can get one for $200, but you can get close.

    Re: amp for 2 600 rms dual voice coils

    ok, What do I look for as for 2 channel or can a mono amp work? Do I look for a 1200 watt 2 channel? That is 600 x 2. I don't think that is right. Or a mono 800 watt? or a 600 2 channel? i am confused. Thanks again for the help.

    Alright, to get the most power you are going to want to wire it to 1ohm. So you need to find an amp that will put out 1200 wattsx1. A two channel amp will usually not run at 1 ohm unless you get a really expensive one. Like mentioned the JBL 1200.1, or the Hifonics BX1500D would work, but that is even more money. JBL is probably your best bet, its one of the best half decent budget amp out there.
