    Which Punch to push two JL 12" W6's????

    I am about to throw some subs an an amp into my car. I have decided to go with JL subs and a rockford amp. My question is, if I was to get two JL w6 12's, what size punch amp should I get to push them?? Do you think the w6s are worth the extra money over the w3's??? Thanks

    300 watts RMS. I figured maybe a punch 600. Those amps give out a little bit more than they say too dont they?? If I did that a 4 ohm W6 would be what I wanted, correct???

    a punch 600.4? should put out 300 W X 2 @ 4 Ohms Bridged RMS also, as tehy ARE underrated, it should put out like 350, i think the 4 ohm w6 would be the correct woofer, somoen correct me inf im wrong, im not much for wiring etc...

    I was thinking more along the line off a two channel amp. Is there even a 600 watt 2 channel punch made?? Right now in my car Ive got two pairs of Infinity Kappa 5x7's and a alpine receiver. I am about to get my subs and an amp for those. I eventually want to get a punch 200.4 to power the kappas too. If I do that I am gonna get a new receiver too, I want another alpine, but i want 3 sets of preamp out puts.

    W6's have dual 6 ohm coils, bear that in mind. If your set on using a punch amp you might want to get w3's which come in dual 2,4,8, ohms. I'd go with bd1000 amp.

    bd500.1 should be more than you could handle.
