    first off, the peak numbers mean nothing...

    ok, 700 watts apiece. If I remember right, those are dual 2...although I know some 'Bahns are dual 6 or something odd like that.

    PG Tantrum 1200.1? Series/parallel them to a 2 ohm load...700 watts apiece.

    If you can get a 2ohm or a 1ohm final load, the JBL 1200.1 would work. Supposed to be a little underrated and give out more like 1300w RMS, which would give 650w per sub. And no, you won't notice a difference between 650w & 750w/sub.

    It would be a great help if you told us the Ohm configuration on the Subs weather they are dual 2's or dual 4 ohm ????

    advantage to the PG - no difference whether at 2 or 4 ohms final impedance

    go ahead and get the PG u'll be happy with it , but becareful with the gains
    I've seen the birth sheets on the PG 1200.1 at 14.4 the push around 1500 rms
    ans they only cost $319 a peice fro mteh right place they are a very good budget amp

    mine benched at 1454 and some change...plenty of power for those...

    series/parallel them for a 4 ohm total impedance, and you're set...
