    Are you subs ported or sealed?

    Huh? No. Just no. Kenwood amps are junk.

    First of all you're going to have a final 2 ohm load. 2 DVC 2 ohms will be a final load of either 2 ohm or 8 ohm. But without knowing the RMS of the subs it's hard to recommend an amp. I'm going to guess they're 12w3s and in that case you'd need a 1000 watts @ 2 ohms.

    Coming from someone who has used the w3v3's I wouldn't put more than 400rms to each one.

    You can buy this and watch your gain. http://www.woofersetc.com/p-6357-mrp...amplifier.aspx
