New to car audio. Need woofer help

Hey guys names trev, uhhhhhh I just recently purchased 2 polk db1240dvc subs (both at 4 ohms), and a custom tight vented box. So what I wanted to ask you guys was, what amp should I be running these guys on. The head unit says I should not be connecting speakers lower than 4 ohms. So I am guessing that I would need a 4 ohm amp? Please enlighten me, I have no idea what I am doing and car audio is far from my area of expertise. so any help is greatly appreciated

You need an amp that can do rated 500 to 750 watts rms at 1 ohm.

Refer to diagram below for connection, give us a budget and we can make some recommendations on which amp.

Lets see, my budget is under 200. But, If there are better albeit more expensive amps go ahead and list those too because really price is no object. But if I could find a solid one for under 200 then obviously thats what ill go for.
Cheers Mate.

The thing is 1 ohm amps are kinda pricey, but uh couldn't I run them on an amp with a 4 ohm load, I feel like it would be the same output but less strain on the battery?

750 watts rms @ 1 ohm is relatively cheaper than 750 watts rms @ 4 ohms.

750 watts @ 1 ohm is fine on the battery...
