    I have 2 subs and 1 amp. Need more power. Another amp?

    Hey guys you might remember my posts and what not of me getting 2 subs, and an amp. Well I never took it to best buy or anything, I installed it myself, even drilled a hole through the firewall . System sounds really nice, i have it wired for a 4ohm load x1 @ 400watts RMS (atleast my amp reads that anyways)

    Here are my subs:
    2 10" Pioneer Premier Subwoofers
    Dual Voice Coil (2x4W ) Design for Increased System Flexibility
    800 Watts Max Music Power
    400 Watts Nominal Power Handling
    Frequency Response: 18-2,500Hz
    Sensitivity (Efficiency): 86dB (1W/1m)
    2Ohm or 8Ohm Rated

    And my amp:
    Continuous Power (20Hz-20kHz, 0.04% THD)
    2 ch: (4 Ohm) 100Wx2
    2 ch: (2 Ohm) 200Wx2
    1 ch: (4 Ohm) 400Wx1
    Maximum Power (EIAJ)
    2 ch: (4 Ohm) 250Wx2
    1 ch: (4 Ohm) 750Wx1
    Frequency Response: 10Hz - 50kHz (0,-1dB)
    Total Harmonic Distortion: 105dB (IHF-A Weighted, at 1kHz)
    Bridgeable 1/2/3 Channel Capability
    PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
    2 Ohm (4 Ohm mono) Optimized MOSFET Output Section

    It sounds pretty nice but i think these subs were just for SQ because its more of a "THUMP" than a "BUMP". It doesnt have that deep level of bass. Im only giving these subs half of what they can take, so I need you guys to tell me what amp I can get to add to this, or is there any amp that will do 400 watts x 2 @ 2ohm or 800watts x 1 @ 4ohms?

    Dont really know how to explain it, but i guess I just want more of a bump

    '97 Avenger
    K&N Filter
    Avenger Decals
    Tinted Windows
    Sony CA400 HU (50x4watts)
    Sony Xplod 5 1/4s (140watts ea.)
    Jensen 6x9s (180watts ea.)
    2 Pioneer Premier 10" Subs (800watts ea.)
    1 Pioneer Premier PRS-X720 Amp 400watt x 1 @ 4ohms (under-rated)

    just get another amp. You could by a big one and save the smaller one for components or speakers. Not sure of any off the top of my head, maybe the jbl 600.1 would work since you can get a 1 ohm load out of them. also box design, helps alot when trying to get speakers louder. 600.1 and a big ported box tuned to 35 hz would help you.
