    Need help picking an amp!

    Hello,
    Since most of you have more experience at this than me I was wondering what Amp I should get to push 2 ROCKFORD FOSGATE HE2 RFP3210 10" SUBS. I Will be putting these in a custom sealed enclosure cause i have heard that they don't hit as hard in ported enclosures. I only wanna spend close to $250 for an amp lol cause thats all i got.

    exact opposite... ported enclosures hit harder than sealed, but you lose some sound quality.. depends if you want SQ or SPL though...
    sealed will be a tad quieter, but better response, better freq's......

    many people are suggesting JBL's a inexpensive good amps.

    im not sure how many watts those RF's are, im pretty sure quite a bit...
    maybe a JBL1200.1...

    LOL!! while replying to this post i stumbled across this..

    it is the exact amp i recommended and your subs, 'cept his are 15".....
    and im like 97% positive that that amp is less than $250.....
    im in canada, so i dont know how much they are US

    Get the 600.1, the 1200 would snap, crackle, pop those He2's @ 1 ohm Or you could get the 1200.1 and wire it @ 4 ohms. Then you would have double the power(for another $70-90) if you ever decided to upgrade subs. As far as wiring dvc's here's a good link http://www.jlaudio.com/tutorials/wiring/index.html
