One of the rules of wattage is that it is expotential. you must not get an amp with more than 1100 peak watts. for that speaker, you would want an amp with an rms watts of 600-300, and peak watts of about 1000 to ensure that your speaker will not be overdriven.

It all depends on the wattage of your subs. you need an amp more powerful than the both subs combined. For example. for 2 500 watt subs, you'll need at least a 1200 watt amp. amps should never be truned up to full power, 80% max as they tend to blow more quickly and overheat when on max. ideally you want an amp over the total combined wattage of your both subs so you dont need your amp on max for the best sound for you subs.
this bandpass enclosure is rated peak power at 1200 watts . what this means is that each subwoofer in the is peaked at 600watts to make 1200 watts . what your looking for is to power up the subs with rms continuous wattage . you need an amp that will put out 400 to 500 rms a channel to run this sub enclosure at 800 to 1000 watts rms to keep the speaker from blowing
this amp will give you
1 channel @ 4 ohm x1 350 watts
1 channel @ 2 ohm x1 900 wats
1 channel @ 1 ohm x1 1800 watts
you would have extra power for better subs with more power later but you get 900 watts which when connected right would mean 450 watts per sub be perfect for you .

this is too close, your speaker wattage is alway's higher than your amplifier's wattage alway's to be safe because the hard pounding will make the speaker work harder, and this will cause your speaker burn out easily, though you can adjust your amplifier anyway's
Do you have enough amp to power the subs, sounds like the coils are heating up and shutting down. Twice the amp for the wattage of the speaker as in 100watt sub 200 watt amp supply and so on.. 1000 watt sub would need at least 1500 watt continuous out put
Alll depends on what the peak power of subs is. You must remember you want a lower watt amp than your speakers or there put under a lot of stress and you will most likely blow the subs, or you'll have **** quality.. you must also remember if your using a high wattage amp you gotta make sure you have a good alternator, and you should probably invest in a battery canister so not as much power is drawn from the battery, if you are putting out 1200 watts, invest in a bigger battery.
No amp is too big, you can turn the gain down. Anyway in my experience people tend to blow up their subs with underpowered stuff anyway (power spikes from clipping). Your amp is rated at 11000watts max and will probably only put out 500 or 600 watts RMS - RMS by the way is the number you should go by. It indicates the usable output w/ out lots of distortion. On the flipside you can power high wattage subs with an underpowered amp and be just fine. However if you wish to extract the most you will need to match amps and subs. A good example of under powered sub applications is in some of my work- I built a wall of nine 12" subs in a bronco, we competed in a 50 watt class and cleaned house taking first in class. Another would be a 150x2 watt amp driving two 15" CV Strokers (1200 watts each). I was going to compete in that class but they made me move up becuase I was an installer at the time. I was upset at first but after my first try I was able to get about 146db and went on to take first anyway. So if the enclosures are built right you can still use that kind of setup. I hope this was helpfull. If you are concerned with exact wattage ratings the manufactures websites should list them. Good luck.
