    Trying to match amp to sub - suggestions?

    What is a decent (and inexpensive) amp that would work well with a 10" JL W0 8 enclosed sub? The box is 3/4" particle board box and size is 12"x14" base - 12" high - slants to a 9.5"x14".

    8 ohm -
    125 watt RMS - 250 watt Peak

    I know that the box should be made out of MDF, but my brother thinks he got a good deal on it and want to know what to push it with. Any suggestions? Is the box size correct?

    Look into an amp that puts out about 250 watts at 4 ohms. At 8 ohm you should be looking somewhere between 100-150 watts.

    X-tant makes a nice 200 watt 2 channel amp.
