Need Some Advice

I just purchased my first subwoofers. Got dual kicker comp s 12's. They were on sale and came in a pre-made enclosure for under 200 bucks. So why not right? Now I'm learning just how crazy expensive amps can be. I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of amp I would need to bring the best out of these subs? I'm not down to spend really anymore than a couple hundred bucks. Not sure if it's possible without having to go the super cheap unknown brand route. Any advice and help is greatly appreciated.

Here's the model number if you care to find out all the specs

It says they're 600 watts. Not sure if that per sub or both altogether.

hello! those are nice subs you got, I heard them personally from a friend's setup in his Accord .
I would go with a 500 watt amp that's capable at running at 2 ohms ( like the alpine mrp-500 ) which puts out [email protected] and 500 @2ohms.
​​​​​​though you don't have to get that specific amp, just read the description and make sure you're getting the desired wattage you need for those subs... my friend had a kicker 300.1 which was 300 watts at 2 ohm for thse exact same subs and they were banging!
just do your research and match up the numbers..
watch out for the brands that overrate their products like boss and lanzar.
double check your subs final impedance with a mutlimeter so you know for sure what type of amp you need topower them with.
if you aren't keen on spending over 100$ on amps
, go with the boss ar1500m. I had that powering 2 Rockford subs and they put out... but eventually I upgraded. some brands that are almost on point with their ratings are like jl audio, Alpine, kicker, sundown, American bass.. of course they are heavier on the wallet too. but as a starter in the car audio, I think the boss ar1500m would be enough for now .. I mean for 80$ on Amazon with free shipping ( prime ), c'mon that's not too bad for getting into it and you could always sell it if you plan to updrage or even Daisy chain 2 of them and get double the power!
