    Icon11 Amp for pair of Infinity Kappa 120.3DVC 12''

    I'm actually clueless about what I'm doing here I have no clue really, I don't but I'm trying. I just got my first car (2001 Impala) about two months ago, and I wanted to take it to the next level by adding a system to beat my friends (they have sony subs and cheap amps to my knowledge, so I'm not up against much), or I started searching around for so subs that looked cool, and were at a reasonable price, I heard Infinity was good so I went on ebay and decided on a pair of Infinity Kappa 120.3DVC 12'' (if someone knows what the DVC means, please explain) anyways I'm also hooking up a Sony CDX-F7700 (was this a good choice?) cd deck to it but what I haven't decided on yet is an amp, I don't know much about them see, these Infinity Kappas have a POWER HANDLING of 300W RMS/per speaker or 1200W peak/per speaker, DUAL 4-OH*VOICE COIL, I read on the net that a JBL 600.1 would do 600Wrms x 1 @ 2 and @ 1 Ohm. that'd go straight parallel, and give 300W per sub? But is that enough or should I get a JBL BP1200.1 Amp, and will these amps run 2 subwoofers , remember I don't really know much, please help, thanks 4rell....btw I went to some elecrtronic store and a dude tried to push a 1000watt sony xplod amp on me, but I heard sony amps and woofers are bad, like not good at no... and what kind of sub box should they go into aswell?

    To start, DVC means dual voice coils.... and if i have a suggestion for an amp its the Audiobahn A8002T. Wire them in series parallel for a 2 ohm load and turn the gain down to 34.6 volts. You can get the amp for about 190 shipped off ebay, or 250 at your local shop.
