    Aura RPM2300 RPM Stage 2 Mobile Amplifier 2x150W 269-189

    Bridge that. Edit to note: Yes, while you may never have heard of Aurasound, it is a good brand. That amp is normally a good bit more expensive but since it's a factory buyout (basically a clearance sale), it's cheap! It will provide the right amount of power at the right impedance for those subs. If you upgrade to higher power subs later, no problem - the amp can convert to be used as an amp for your front speakers and you can get a more powerful subwoofer amp. (Or, really, it's not like the amp can't drive more powerful subs, just that there's no reason to get more powerful subs without also getting a more powerful amp.)

    Re: Need the right specs for a amp to work for my new subs

    Anything that provides 300 watts RMS or higher at 4 ohms. Most 1-channel ("monoblocks") have advertised power ratings given at 1 or 2 ohms and will be significantly less at 4 ohms so be sure to check. Stereo amps can almost always be bridged to run in mono mode. The amp that I linked is a good amp at a really good price that provides the perfect amount of power for your subs and would also be perfect for your fronts in the future if you upgrade. I recommend it. I feel you can't get anything else to match its value unless you go used.

    No, forget the max power. Go by RMS only. And forget that. Soundstorm is low quality. What do you not like about my advice?

    I gave you a link to a good one at a store you can buy it from. Are you looking for one you can buy locally?

    Re: Need the right specs for a amp to work for my new subs

    I looked at your subs and the amp that I linked is matched very well to them. Actually, it's a bit more powerful than the subs are (if they aren't underrated). But that's fine. It's a great match and a great price and a great amp.
