    Icon32 Amp for single JW 12w0??

    I'm putting in a 12w0 into my gf's car. It's a svc 4ohm rated at around 125 rms. I've heard of people feeding these way more, but she's never had a sub before so i'm sure anything will sound good to her. anyways, looking for a decent, not too spendy amp that will put out 125-200 watts rms at 4ohm mono. Any and all recommendations would be appreciated. The ones I've looked at so far are:

    Profile AP400 (200x1 4ohm mono)
    Kicker KX150.2 (150x1 4 ohm mono)
    PrecisionPower PCX-250 (200x1 4ohm mono)
    and a couple others...

    Thanks in advance.

    JL Audio 250/1 Mono, might be more pricey than the ones you listed but good amp

    Would that JL 250/1 be too much power for the sub...or would it be fine if eq and gains are set accordingly....

    as far as blowing the sub...only if u plan on putting it in a 5cube ported box...u can over excurt the sub that way
    thermally u should be fine

    Re: Amp for single JW 12w0??

    How does this amp look, cuz I'm pretty sure I'll order it at the end of the month. Seems like a decent deal and I've been hearing good things about Directed.

    http://www.cardomain.com/sku/DEI45011

    DEI 350D
    Rated 150watts @ 4ohms.

    Again this is going to power a JL 12W0 4ohm svc rated at 125watts that is going in my girlfriend's car.
