    What's the voice coil configuration for each sub? Single or dual voice coil? 4ohm or different? Use a mono amp regardless, we just need to find out what ohm load you'll need the power at.

    Get a mono amp that does 500-750 watts at 2ohms, and you'll be set. There are JBL and Kicker models that do that if you're interested in staying mainstream.

    You look at the amps power rating. Look for RMS wattage, not "PEAK" or MAX" wattage. As long as you buy a good brand, you can be sure that the amp will do it's rated power. Crappy brands will inflate these numbers.
