Default Need help choosing a amp

Greetings all im new to the board nice place ya got here.

Im on kinda a buget here of no more than probably 300 bucks. What i have is 2 Phoenix Gold Tiatinum 12d's.
What i would like to have is 1000watts RMS at either 4 or 1 ohm. Max of 1700watts. The Phoenix Gold amp is perfect but not within my budget. So here i am with some kick butt subs and no amp.

I have looked at the power acoustik gothic series 1600x1 and everyone says they are under powered but like i said buget doesn't allow for the JBL 1201.1 or anything like that. An suggestions on cheaper amps that would work for my setup. It doesn't have to be 1000watts RMS i think i would even settle for 800watts RMS x1 at 1 or 4 ohm.

Thanks,
Dysturbed

You can find the JBL 1200.1 for about $260 if you look.

Or you can buy a Power Acoustic, Legacy, Pyle, or Pyramid and pretend it's 1000 watts because that's what the sticker says.

Your choice.
