This is not a 500w sub, Jl audio 12w1v2 4Ohm subs are 150w RMS. Therefore do not power each sub with more than 150w of continous power. A 300w 2 channel amp would power these more than adequately and thats wired 4 ohm - each on a separate channel but if you buy a 2 Ohm stable amp then you can buy a smaller one which is 300w RMS at 2 Ohm - bridged, therefore getting the most out of your amp and probably saving money.

500watts sounds about right to me,i wouldnt go any higher as you risk popping the sub and haveing a melt down in the coil section of the subwoofer.

That popping noise is your speaker telling you to turn it down, and that your amp is too powerful for your setup. The speaker cone is moving beyond its limits of excursion and on it's way to malfunction/blown. Basically the voice coil will fry.
