    I would say go for it!! I personally have 2 GTO series JBL 10's and they are very nice.. I also have a buddy with 2 GTi 10's on an Xtant 1001D.. very clean and loud.. They are dual 6 ohm coils, so i would go with a JBL BP1200.1 amp... you could parallel the coils of each sub and then parallel the subs to the amp.. 1.5 ohm load.. will work perfect on the amp and each sub will get 600W rms.

    ok this might make me seem really stupid but i got to know so if i reduce the ohm load to 1.5 ohm then they will be better?

    Yes.. the lower the ohms, the more current running throughth amp, so the more power put out. The JBL 1200.1 puts out 1200W rms at 2 or 1 ohm, so at 1.5ohm, each sub will split the power, getting 600W rms each.

    If it was me I would spend the extra $$ and get the ampman revolution , I have had both amps and the revoluiton flat blows the JBL 1200 away at any ohm load , seems to use less power , Deifinatly puts out more power by a big margin , I dont care what the ratings are they are close to the same @ 4 ohms and the Revo Rocks ! My pennies !
