Default What Amp/s do i need?

Hey guys, I'm in need of some advice as to what Amp or Amps that would be necessary to run my new sub woofers.

I have two 12" Solobaric-L7 Kicker subs.

Max Watts=1500 watts
RMS=750 watts

I was just wondering what you guys would recommend i am at a loss.

Cheers

Are the subs dual 4 ohm or dual 2 ohm? If they are dual 4 ohm you want something that will do its highest rated power at 1 ohm and if you have dual 2 ohm subs you should find an amp that does its highest rated power at 2 ohm. I would try to find an amp that does approximately 1500 watts rms give or take a couple hundred watts. There are many choices. What brands are available in your country?

Yeah, in aussie, there are a few good car audio shops around the place.
Some of the brands that i can recall of the top of my head are:

Boston
Clarion
Fusion
JBL
JL AUDIO
JVC
Kenwood
Kicker
Alpine
Pioneer
SONY
Soundstream

But most brands are readily available by order/over the internet.

I'm looking at getting the dual 4 OHM subs.

Select them according to your budget, then review what you have left.
