You could run those on an even higher watt amp IF you set your gain correctly with a DMM... Oh, and BTW... You are WAY over-paying for that... You can get it direct from MTX for like $100 cheaper w/ free shipping :fyi: = MTX Mobile Dual 12" 2 Sealed 800W Peak Subwoofer Enclosure (http://www.mtx.com/_mtx+mobile+dual+12+2+937+sealed+800w+peak+subwoof er+enclosure_no-tne212d_31/b)

Class d, audiopipe apsm 1300 would do well with that and they fit in a 16 year old budget, not the best but for what you pay, can't really beat it. Should be able to do 300 or so at 2ohms.

get a class D amp... Class A/B would be completely unnecessary

Dude just buy a b stock sundown e series 12 or 15 from emfcaraudio.com (formally sundownonly.com) for $110 and get an audiopipe apsm 1200 off eBay for $ $95. Under $200 for sub and amp and it will actually make a lil noise . Instead of spending $30 less and having a waste of space in your trunk. As for a box just buy one of the crappy $30 boxes off eBay (sealed) and b done with it.

After looking at what u wanna buy get 2 sundown e12's d4 subs $220 brand new with warranty and put them on a apsm1200 at 1 ohm $95 shipped . Then either build a 4 ft/3 sealed box outta mdf or if your not a "hands on" type of guy buy a cheap sealed box from a pawn shop or at one of those "jicky" eletronics flea markets.

You will have some respectable sub stage then. I have never had good luck with preloaded sub "deals" and for what they are asking for those mtx's you can do better.

Hell the setup i was running last was 2 e15's on an audiopipe apsm2000 running at 2 ohm and as long as I didn't get greedy with the gains it sounded great and was damm near uncomfortable in the output department.

E series sundown subs on an audiopipe apsm ftw

I will suggest two c2 threatcon for $129 each free shipped and apsm 1500 $121 from 3 kings get a decent prefab or build your won box

under $400 and this will be louder than the sundown E series

Also a great suggestion the c2's have stitched surrounds and a bit more magnet $25 more but worth it for the stitching. I have never owned a pair but have heard good things. The big thing here is for the money the audiopipe apsm series amps are a helluva value and as of yet I have had 0 issues with my apsm2000.

Benched it at 14.4 volts @ 2 ohms it put 1290 watts out unclipped, at 1 ohm it did 1890 unclipped. Not quite rated but freakin awsome for under $170.00 shipped. Sure the low pass filter isn't the greatest, and the bass knob is a bit on the sensitive side but I have ran it for 6 hours straight at 1 ohm on my SA 15's with no thermal issues in 105 degree west texas summer heat to boot.

Audio pipe apsm for the budget minded "joe stereo"
