    The w3v2's are supposed to take about 300 rms, so depending on what ohm you run your subs at, either a JBL 600/1 (at 2 Ohms) or a JBL 1200/1 (at 4 ohms) would work great.

    what do the ohms mean? will I get better performance out of 4 ohms or 2 Ohms or does it even matter? Whats a good price on the JBL 600.1 and the 1200.1? What about the the MTX 6500D I have a friend running 2 W3v2's (10"s) on that? How bout for my 12"s?

    Hey, the wattage on the 10's and the 12's should be the same, so if you like the sound of his, that amp would work well for you too but i dont have any experience with it. Technically at 4 Ohms, you will get better sound quality than at 2 Ohms because there is less strain on the amp. I don't think you would notice much though, especially with subs. Depending on what your subs are (Dual Voice Coil at some number Ohms) there are different ways to wire them. I wouldn't reccomend a one ohm load if you don't need to. Look at JBL's website, they have a bunch of wiring diagrams on there. You can find the JBL 600/1 for about 189 and the 1200/1 for about 270.

    well if the amp is stable at 2 ohms you shouldnt have a problem....the jbl is stable down to 1 ohm....but i see where your going......also the diff. in current draw...the jbl 1200.1 draws aprox 114amp at max...the 600.1 draws only 53amps.....im looking at the charging system....but either way...good luck
