Amp for 2 JL 12w3v2-d4s?

Suggestions? As budget friendly as possible. I don't really have a lot of coin to drop on one. I picked the subs up used, and they're nice, but I don't have anything worthwhile to drive them with.

Those are the subs.

Thoughts, guys?

Jl 500/1

for that sub set up you have, I would use a JL 500/1 to push them. With the
right sub box you will get a nice sound from them. The only problem that I've encountered with the JL amps is that they use too much juice. in my opininon that's what I have done and that's what I would do if I was in your shoes.

Well, I have two of them.

I ended up going with: http://www.audiopipe.com/products/am...apsm-1500.html

Saw some videos of it on youtube where it clamped pretty much exactly how it was rated. Plus, only $120 shipped. Can't go wrong there. Got the recommendation from a few guys on another audio forum I'm on, and one person from here as well.

Can't wait to get my music back.
