First off how much are you buying the subs for? They only have 40oz magnets so they arent going to be able to do to much.

Second I would buy this amp if i was going to run those in my car...click here for info



It would be a good match for those subs.

OK, first off how much are you spending on the whole setup? And secondly, NEVER buy an amp from walmart if you want some thump. I pieced together a sub system from eghey, as follows. (You can still get the exact same thing now)

2 Pioneer 12" DVC (dual voic coil) subs... $150
1 Soundstream EGA900D D class amp 900w RMS $195
Audio pipe 4G wiring kit, about... $30
Dual box from local audio shop... $45

COMPLETELY satisfied. I have this thing turned up at about a 1/3 of what it can do and it sounds great. Turn it up enough and it'll make you sick an bother the neighbors a block over. All for about $400ish... cant be beat for the price. Did the instal myself as well, wired at 1 ohm.

In all honesty, Lightning audio isn't going to hit that 750max handling. that is more of a ILS rating (If Lightning Strikes).

Get yourself a small amp that is about 400 watts, preferably a mono amp, one that is two ohm mono capable. I say go with a mono amp cause they are designed to do only one thing...subwoofer duties. Your 4ohm subs when wired mono will produce a 2 ohm load. So find a smaller little 2 ohm stable mono amp. You could stand to do very well with Coustic, Elevation Audio, Hifonics, Crunch, MTX, any of these will do you justice. Even the JL E2150 2 channel will give you about 330w mono into 2 ohms. All can keep you in a price range of around 200/amp.

Just don't try to get to the 750 ea rating..you will blow the hell out of those subs.
