Okay the mid bass drivers I want are rated 300 rms a piece and I want two. Should I get a 2 channel amp and bridge the speakers to 4ohm which the total rms output will be 500 or should I get a mono amp wire them in parallel 2 ohm to get a total of 600 rms?

Are you sure that isn't 300W peak? What are the midbass drivers?

No that's not the peak, it's the crescendo 10inch drivers

I re-read your original post and it's confusing. Neither wiring option is ideal for midbass speakers. You need them wired separately with left and right signals. Bass is recorded in mono, midbass is recorded in stereo. Unless everything you listen to is recorded in mono you're going to be missing part of the experience the recording engineer intended for us to hear.

Precision Power PPI P600.2 (p6002) 2-Channel Phantom Car Amplifier (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_38336_Precision-Power-PPI-P600.2.html) should power those pwx's fine.

2ohm each side would be fine, much easier to get that kinda pwr at 2 ohm than it is at 4

They don't sell 2 ohm it's svc so the only way to get them to 2 ohm is if I wire them together in parallel on one channel which isn't good. I think I'm gonna do a 2 channel and just under power them.

it should be fine, those crescendo pwx's are really sensitive, they got loud even on head unit power. Another option would be getting a 4 channel and bridging it for globs of power Precision Power PPI P900.4 (p9004) 4-Channel Phantom Car Amplifier (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_38338_Precision-Power-PPI-P900.4.html)

Are those Mid Bass or Mid Range. I would not send PA mid Range to much power. One its not needed and two it will get raspy.
