    Need Help picking an amp

    I have 2 12-inch Sony Xplod Subs (1200 watts max peak) and I need a new amp to push it. I only have 200 to spend on an amp... so do you have any suggestions?

    Im thinking about the Kenwood KAC7201 amp.. it seems to get nothing but great reviews and its only 179.99 at Circuit CIty. The specs are these:

    Warranty:Months
    Labor/Parts 12/12
    # of Channels 2
    Power (Watts RMS into 4 ohms x Channels) 150 x 2
    Power (Watts RMS into 2 ohms x Channels) 230 x 1
    Bridged power x Channels (4 Ohms) 460 x 1
    Peak power x Channels (Watts) 800 x 2
    Signal-to-Noise Ratio (dB) Unavailable
    Speaker-Level Inputs Yes
    Pre-Amp Level Outputs No
    Distortion (THD%) at Rated Power .08%
    Gold Plated Terminals Yes
    Crossover Range (Hz) Variable 20Hz-20kHz
    Adjustable Bass Boost Yes
    Built-in Crossover Type High and Low Pass
    Fuse Rating (Amps) 30 x 2
    Dimensions (HxWxD) Unavailable


    So do ya'll think it would be a good choice? Or do you have any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Do you have the single voice coil models or the dual voice coil models ?
    Do you plan on upgrading your subwoofers in the future ?
    Are you using a ported enclosure (or do you plan on using a ported enclosure) ?
    I dont plan on upgrading my subs anytime in the future.. unless I can somehow sell these and get better ones without spending monye, which is doubtful.

    I got the single voice coil model. and I got no idea what a ported enclosure is...
