    sub power

    I want 2 10: jl w06 subs. Im trying to find the best amp to use. they are 400w RMS. the amp Im looking at now is a audiobahn a8002t 400x2 at 2ohm 800x1 at 4ohm. correct me if im wrong but could I wire the 2 jl's at 4ohm and bridge this amp and get about 400watts to each speaker or am I missing something? and what other kind of amps do you suggest

    You can call up JL Audio and see what they'd recommend. I've talked to their tech support a couple of times, and they're really cool/informal. Just tell them you already bought the subs, and see what amp they'd recommend.
