I have a TS-W306DVC Pioneer 12" sub and want to get another one now. But it got discontinued. Will this sub run perfectly together with the TS-W307D4 Pioneer 12" sub? Or the TS-W307D2? Each sub with own amp or both on one?

Re: 2 Subs running together
If they have the same impedence (like 4 ohm) then you should be able to
run two different model number speakers as if they were the same model
number. There might be a slight difference in the way they sound,
but I would not expect it to be enough to be noticeable. Good

pretty much any amplifier can run any sub, so the question is not weather or not the amp can run them, it is how well the amp can run them. Those Pioneer subs are dual VC models and are rated at 600 watts RMS. You have two, so that would be about 1200 watts of RMS power you will need in order to power the subs correctly and to optimum efficiency. The amplifier model you have is rated at 600 watts RMS for a single channel at the lowest stable impendence. That power coming from the amp will be split two ways between the subs and divide the power to each speaker. So each speaker will be receiving 300 watts of power. So in short yes, your amp will power those subs, but they will only be operating at half their rated power. Your amp will be running at maximum power so it might get a little warm after a while. make sure you wire it correctly and keep the amp well ventilated if you decide to push it that hard. if you need help on how to wire them search the web for wiring options by typing into Google " how to wire two dual voice coil subs into amp". There you will find plenty of illustrations to help you decide.
subs usually allow a bridge where you connect the mono positive to one side positive and the mono negative to the other side negative. Does it not mention this in the instructions? If you don't have the instructions, try it. It can't hurt anything, but use low volume when checking. If you want to verify the bridge before hooking up, use an ohmmeter to look across the positive on one side to the negative on the other. If one combination is open or more than 8 ohms, try the other set of positive and cross-negative. OK?
Having your subs in well-designed and constructed enclosures will make as much or more difference in their output than how you connect them to an amp.
The TS-SW1241D's are single voice coil 4 ohm shallow subwoofers that are rated for 350 watts RMS. For maximum loudness, your JL amp needs to be 2 ohm stable and capable of delivering 700 watts RMS into that impedance. Wire the subs in parallel for a 2 ohm load and maximum power from the amp.
If you're looking for SPL (LOUD) go vented.
If you're looking for tonal accuracy (Sound Quality) go sealed.
The tradeoff between the two is that a ported enclosure will allow your subs to play highly powered. More air flow - better cooling of the voicecoils.
Sealed enclosures dont like much power because the coil cannot breathe and heats up rather quickly.
Its up to you, and your listening type.
Just remember LOUD = PORTED
QUALITY = SEALED
Bandpass is kind of a mixture of the two, however you give up some of the frequency range the sub plays at - and I dont ever recommend a bandpass enclosure to my customers unless they are looking to be flashy and light up the cones or magnet assemblies.
There are advantages and disadvantages to every enclosure type.
Pick the one that best suits your taste, and be sure to fire it toward the rear of the vehicle for the best response and cabin gain.

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
