    I'd get something that does ~ 600 x 1 @ 1ohm.

    Browse through the amplifier section or sites like www.thezeb.com, www.onlinecarstereo.com, www.sounddomain.com/shop, etc and see what you like and what is in your price range.

    Come back with a list and we'll tell you if they're crap or not

    Look on ebay, you can find a brand new Hifonics nx750d that is rated at 750rms @ 1ohm for $185 brand new, or a Hifonics bx1000d that is rated at 1000rms @ 1ohm for $215 brand new.

    Also he doesnt want the amp to shut off after 15 mins of use , he wants to be able to run good power for a good hour or 2 before it goes in to protection mode. Will the amp above be able to do that? If not what amp will be able to do that or better?

    I wouldn't send a Perfect more than it's rated 350 RMS (unless you know what you're doing). That number is pretty much right on ...

    Re: What is the best amp for 2 12" Infinity Perfect dvc?

    then why such a high peak rating on the perfect? Jw cause 1400 w peak per sub and running lets say an amp with a peak power rating of 1200 watts, the rms is usuall half of that 600 watts, so 300 watts rms to each sub. You think that is the best way to go? Any other opinions, can the subs handle more power than that?

    Bah, power ratings

    There's quite a few people on here who have blown them.

    Orion 600D comes to mind. Directed 600D as well. Soundstream EGA2300 does 600 x 1 @ 4ohm, which is also another wiring configuration for your DVC 4 ohm subs (1 or 4ohm). Soundstream VGA600.2 also. Etc.

    The Orion or Directed 600D is the best bet. They'll give clean reliable power to the subs and shouldn't be too much for them.

    The RUB500-1 does 400 x 1 @ 2ohm ... so it wouldn't work with a pair of DVC 4ohm drivers ... since they can only be wired to 1ohm or 4ohm.

    The 200x1 @ 4ohm it does would work ... but I'd go for something else to give them a touch more power.
