Subs to match my Ultimate T3-500D?

I just grabbed a box w/ 2 10"'s and an amp from someone in my car club.

The amp is an Ultimate T3-500D, and the subs are Pioneer TS-256C's.

From what I've been reading about this amp it's massively overpowered for these subs. If I want to stick to a pair of 10's what would be the best Subs to match up with this amp?

The current Sub Specs are

Specifications
Watts MAX. Music Power 700 Watts
Watts Nominal Power Handling 350 Watts
Frequency Response 18hz ~ 2.5kHz
Sensitivity 87dB
Ohm Rating 4

As for the Amp, I was looking at this posted by someone on another forum.

I just got finished doing extensive tests on both the T3-1000d and the T3-500d.
The T3-1000d is two 500's in one case.
A pair of 500's bridged will do 1 ohm.
A 1000 will not do 1.5ohm or below.
power at 11.8v
T3-500x4ohm=500w
T3-1000x4ohm=1000w
T3-500x2ohm=900w
T3-1000x2ohm=1800w
T3-500x1ohm=1575w
T3-1000x1ohm=3150w but goes into protection
2 bridged T3-500's into 1ohm=3150w
