I am guessing they are single voice coil 4 0hm subs.

Let me know what kind they are.

This is the best bang for the buck.

otherwise your looking into the 300 dollar range for Alpine, RF, JL, etc.

Don't buy a sony amp

I say just spend the money on a good amp. Save up if you have to

You will like it alot better and you will know its good quality.

Go for a Kicker, Alpine, RF, MTX isnt to bad, or JL.

All of those would make you happy.

sorry guys, i don't like electrical stuff and know nothing of audio stuff.

sony explod's 12" subwoofer, 4 ohm impedence, and i'd like to bridge the amp, i don't care if they are in stereo, i want to max the power of the mediocre sub i will buy.

i want to push my subs to their SAFE limit, so will that first link amp do it? itlooks really pvssy looking, will that do the job? the amps i have seen before are ****ty and don't push half as hard as they have claimed. someone said max power for amps should be termed LIS unless it's a good quality amp (If Lightning Strikes)

Well do you want to pay for a good amp? 350 bucks will get you a great amp.


The Profile is enough for your Sony's. You def dont want to over power sony subs.

Sonys dont tolerate heat well at all.

i want whatever it takes to push my subs to a safe operating level. i was told to spend a dollar a watt, so i was thinking 500-600 dollars anyways, but less is always better so long as i'm not shorting my subs' capabilities.
