    This JL W7 13 inch is a monster, but amp?

    Hello all,
    I have a 13 inch JL audio sub. I need a new amp just to run this sub by itself. Here are the specs...
    13W7AE-D1.5(Model) 13.5-inch (345 mm) Subwoofer Driver
    Continuous Power Handling (RMS) 1500 W
    Recommended RMS Amplifier Power 500 - 1500 W
    Nominal Impedance (Znom) Dual 1.5 Ω voice coils

    price isn't really a problem, just want to make sure everything goes together and works properly and efficiently. The part that gets me is that above it states that the recommended RMS amp power is between 500 and 1500. That's a pretty big gap. I prefer to go with a Rockford amp, mono of course, but don't know if I need the 1000 or the 1500 watt amp. thinking about the Rockford Fosgate Power T1500-1bdCP 1500 watt amp. thnx guys
