    Which amp to get?

    Hi im new to the forum and new to subs/amp. I recently got two 12 inch kenwood subs with a q logic box to go in my Mustang but im not sure what size amp to run. The subs say peak watts is 700 but the range is 35-350watts. Any help? I was thinking a 800w amp will do fine.

    they are Kenwood KFC-W3005

    your subs will take no where near 800 rms ,kenwood tends to over exaggerate their ratings for subs and amps. i can help and i'm not to far south of you
