    good amplifier choice sony vs. profile

    I am thinking about buying some Infinity kappa perfect subs...12's handle 300 rms.. not the nicer ones that handle 350.. i am torn between two amps profile california ca1200.. and a sony XM-D1000P5 .. they supposedly both put out 900x1 max in 4ohm load... would a 4 ohm be good to wire the perfects in what would the wiring be, and are thos amps adequate .. they are mono and would be wired so would a 2ohm with a higher watt rating be in order? and would the subs work well with those amps ? they would be in medium sealed box

    Standard Infinity Kappa Perfects have a 350wrms rating. The new Kappa Perfect VQ's have a 400wrms rating. That's sort of besides the point.

    California amps, nor Sony amps are known for their efficiency. Last time I checked, sony's burn themselves out after a good year of moderate use. Mostly likely, neither will give you the watts they say they will.
