    Look for an alpine mrv-1507 amp, it would be a good match for those subs. alpine discontinued it, but you can probably get one on ebay for cheap. JL 500/1 or Precision Power would also work.
    If you have a custom box made, make sure the poeole know what there doing. I know of shops that will charge hundreds for custum enclosures that poorly built. Sealed boxes are simple to build and forgiving of errors. While ported and bandpass boxes are not.

    Ok are they the SVC Type S or the DVC? If they are DVC then a JBL 600.1 would work fine for the three. If svc then id suggest a JBL 1200.1 just becasue the final impedance will be 1.34ohms, and the JBL 600.1 is not 1ohm stable.

    If your looking for a prefab box then one of these should do. http://www.speakerhole.com/directory.cfm?CategoryID=21

    yeah i agree with blackgeltabs. kinda wondering who the newbie is and why he thinks a sub like the perfects designed for great SQ with decent SPL says that the perfects are the way to go. i stick to what blackgeltabs said.
