Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a Pioneer TS-W304C 12 inch sub and was wondering what kind of amp to use with it
You seem to be looking for an amp made for car audio. There are many brands, but I going to give you the specs for your particular speaker which will help in choosing, not a specific name brand amp, but at least one with the proper power outputs/requirements.
Your speaker, based on the model number you provided, is rated at 4 ohms .Power handling range is 50-300 watts. And a peak of 600watts. That does not mean start cranking 600watts thru the speaker, it will blow. I suggest you acquire a single (mono) channel amp that provides 350-400 watts at 4 ohms.
Hope these specs help you in choosing an amp.

Recommended volume for these speakers is 1-2 cu ft each speaker. Best materials are marine grade plywood and epoxy resin/matting. decide what space you think you can spare and see if you can make a box that will be about the right size in the space. always try and leave as much space behind the speaker as the speaker takes up from the front. look at the link below for some ideas of the ready made boxes you can buy. http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pna/v3/pg/album/compare/0,,2076_310069931,00.html the speakers you have will need at least 2 one inch ports each in the back of the box, or equivalent. completely sealed can have bad effects on these speakers at high volume. I personally recommend keeping both subs in a seperate box completely, but a good solid box with a divider will probably work - make sure that no holes of any size exist between the two as this will cause distortion with certain channel set ups and is best avoided although some good results have been achieved with back flow between sub sets - it is a bit too hit and miss to be worth trying. If you need ideas how to fit these into your car so they look good - check out http://www.mtv.com/ontv/dyn/pimp_my_ride if you haven't seen it, check out a few episodes and you will get some great ideas and construction tips. Hope this helps :)

First of all, make sure your amp is bridgeable. There are a few ways to bridge subs. series: hook one wire from the negative on the left amp output (or whichever is labeled on amp for bridged)to left sub negative. left sub positive to right sub negative, then right sub positive to the amp positive output.(like a big loop through both speakers) parallel: both speakers get their own set of wires, both negatives go to the bridge negative terminal, and both positives go to the positive bridge terminal. Series-parallel: A combination of the two. say two speakers in series, and one hooked up alone, but all to the same amp outputs. Bridging your amp/speakers basically lowers the resistance of the circuit and makes more current flow, more power, louder, harder hit. In series, it also makes both speakers do exactly the same thing, instead of "stereo sound" or L/R differences. What you're probably looking to do is Bridge in parallel. That will drop the resistance of the circuit the lowest, allow the amp to put out the most amount of current to the speakers, and allow your bass to hit the hardest. If your amp only has one output, hook up the same way as above. Just see what resistance your amp is stable down to. If down to 1 ohm, no worries. if stable only to 2 or 4 ohms, you may want to bridge in series to be safe. That will cause the resistance to go up, and will not pull as much current through the amp. The whole time, just remember Bridgeing and higher current mean HEAT so watch your amp. I hope this helped.

It comes down to Amperage and RMS, your best bet is to go in and talk to a salesman at a stereo shop. That way he can decide on what sort of power you want and how you wanna use the subs. But 1000amp AMP is probably a good start 4 channel of course. Alpine or SOny make some kick a$$ AMPS

Length (L) = 31.9 cm =
12.6 inches (approximately 12 1/2 inches)
Width (W) = 51.5 cm = 20.3 inches (approximately 20 1/4 inches)
Depth (D) = 19.7 cm = 7.76 inches (approximately 7 3/4 inches)

conect one of the positive terminal from the sub directli to one chanel of the amp, and do the same with the negative,and do the same with the others terminals from the sub conect to the other chanel
