    Which amp with 2 JL 12W6v2 12" subs

    I am pretty set on purchase 2 JL 12W6v2 12"s subs. I know nothing about amplifiers and how much power is needed. I am not trying to spend a fortune but still want to push enough watts to still give good quality. A local car audio store pointed me in the direction of a PowerBass amp that they said would work perfect. In your opinion which amp would suit my set up if i was trying to spend around $500-600.

    Thank you so much.

    Have you looked into the JL 1000/1?

    Rockford Fosgate Power T1500-1bd (T15001bd) = 1500 watts at 1ohm
    or
    Sundown Audio SAZ 1500D = 1500 watts at 1ohm

    The spec sheet on them says they are 4ohm DVC so you can wire 2 of them to 1ohm.

    Both of these amps are between 4 to 500 new online.
    With correct gain settings both would work for you.
    I have 2 12w3v2's on a Rockford T1000bd and they rock. W6's could use the extra power.
