    looking for the right amp

    I'm new and alittle confused I just bought two 10" subs (xtreme by directed).
    they are dual 4 ohm voice coil 200 rms 400 max. So does that mean I need a 4 channel amp 100 watts and 4 ohms per channel or what. this is my newbie system for now I want a good but not pricey amp. tell me what amp would be a good begineers amp thx.

    You need a one channel amp that will perform at 1 ohm. If the RMS per sub is 200 watts then you need an amp that will push a total of 400 to 500 watts rms to the subs. Here is a very good buy. Also check out the other link on how to wire you subs voicecoils to get the right "ohms" for the amp to work well.

    Or you could look for a two channel amp that is bridgeable into 4ohms. You would be OK with an amp that is 300w bridged into 4ohm, you won't notice a difference in the 100w less than "RMS"
