    Have subs but not sure what amp

    So I'm new to this car audio stuff but I have always been intrigued by it all. Anyway I just purchased two Pioneer - 12" Dual-Voice-Coil 2-Ohm Subwoofer Model: TS-W309D2 for my 2012Chevy Cruze. The only thing I need now is an amp. The peak power for one of these is 1400w and the max Rms is 400w. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what an ideal amp is to get these running nicely for me? Also, how do you know what can power these and what can't? Anything helps! Thanks.

    Two DVC 2-ohm scubs...guess you're planning to wire down to 0.5, right?

    I know Lanzar OPTI have several amps that are 1/2 ohm stable, but the ones I looked at were 2k - 7k.... think I might recall there being a 1200k in the line.
    Soundstream and Hifonics also offer some that are

    Look for an amp that makes the power you need at 2 ohms.
