    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.

    no man the puch amps come in 600.4 and 600.5
    grab the 1000.1 if you want to spend that kind of cash...
    or else, grad a JBL 1200.1

    bd500.1 should be more than you could handle.
