    need help - subs for this amp??

    still searching for the perfect subs for me... and need some help...
    first off, i have a kenwood KAC-729S 600 watt amp... currently poweing two ten inch mtx thunder4000's(not to good, which is why i wanna upgrade)... anyways... ive had some choices... but i REALLY need your guys help...

    JL w3's:... people have told me these are the best i can get for my amp... problem is, the only store that sells them around here are charging $199.99 each for these suckers.... is this a reasonable,/correct price for the jl w3 ten inch??

    alpine type-R's.: ive been told my 600 watt kenwood cannot handle two ten inch alpine type-R's... my question is, WILL my amp, or CAN it handle them??...

    i suppose all im trying to find out, is what subs should i get for this amp, for the best preformance/deepest bass, but then again not going REALLY high in the budget area... again if you guys can help me out, let me know, thx alot

    10 inch L7 and that is a bit of a upgrade. I have 3 10inch mtx 4000 and this guy with a 1 10 inch L5 out thumped me so a l7 would be a good upgrade

    Your amp may be 600W MAX, but it's only 300W RMSx1 at 2 ohms bridged, so you're looking at one alpine type r, if you want to go alpine. 300W will work pretty decent for a 10" type r.

    The same thing can be said about a JL 10 or 12W3. Each will take 300W RMS, so if you give that to one, it will like it, I guess.

    My STRONG STRONG suggestion is that you get a different amp that's much bigger, say, a JBL BP600.1. It'll put out a TRUE 600W RMS, whereas yours puts out 300W. If you get that amp, you can buy two type r's, or two W3's and power them sufficiently.
