    What amp should I buy for 2 Pioneer TS-W309D2 subs?

    I just bought 2 Subs for $40 each. I have a 4 door sedan (Acura TL).

    All the audio equipment in the car is stock, right now.

    I want extremely loud & clear bass. I do not know what amplifier to get and I do not understand any of the terms associated with amp & subs. I am a newbie and doing this for the first time.

    What amp should I get for the 2 pioneer TS-W309D2 subs? Any advice is helpful. Also, are these subs good?

    subs are fine for a new guy on a budget. How much are you looking to spend on an amp

    This looks like a 1 channel. Would I not need 2 channels for 2 subs? I know home theatre, I do not know car audio. So that where im coming from. Please correct me if I make no sense.

    I'd give them a 5. they take a pounding as long as you don't over power them and try to get more out of them then they are able to give. For a new guy in the car audio game, These are just fine. Better than many other cheaper crappier brands but they aren't going to compete with many other brands that majority of this community run. Check your messages.

    they are 400 watts RMS each

    the ohms is the resistance load they will put on the amp and since you have DVC 2ohm subs you can wire them as seen here to present a 2ohm amp load

    You're new to the game, so let me tell you this - you never, ever, ever need to worry about 'Peak power handling'. Don't even look at it. As far as wattage goes, the only thing you'll want to look at on subwoofers is the RMS rating. Peak power handling is basically a huge number that a lot of manufacturers throw on their subs to make them look more powerful. It's an insignificant number. Only worry about RMS rating - since you have two subwoofers, you'll want to put their RMS rating together and find an amplifier that would match your power requirements well.
