are they dual 2 or dual 4 ,also the older models or new models ?

- 12-01-2012GA03Re: Help me find an amp...
they are dual 2 and they are the newer models.

then you need an amp that runs at 2 ohms or .5 ohm . you got a budget for the amp

I really dont want to spend over 300.

you'll need to bump your budget up .problem is an amp that will run at .5 ohms will 350-500 or an amp that will give you enough power at 2 ohms will cost 600-800

Probably better to get an amp that does that power at 2ohm rather than 0.5. Most amps are not rated at 0.5ohm so doing so would be at your own risk. But there's always impedance rise

looks like you end up buying used. Buy my US Amps MD3d, more than enough power for those 2 subs :D - 12-01-2012GreekBrotha8Re: Help me find an amp...

I am new here and can't figure out how to post my own question. But can someone recommend and amp for this subwoofer "Rockford Fosgate Prime R1L-2X10 Double R1 10-Inch Preloaded Enclosure" with 600 watts maximum power handling, 300 watts RMS.

My budget is less than $100. I'm not looking for the loudest car system in the world
