    I would say an amplifier that could supply 300w or more...

    1kW is total BS.

    Well, if his price range is 300 to 500 dollars, I would just say to get a nice amplifier that can put out 1500w or so into 1ohm. The reason for this is because he can upgrade his subwoofers later to something that can actually handle that much power.

    more info is needed, what ohm load are they, single, double voice coils? and I'm assuming 1000w is max, what's the rms power handling of these subs....once you answer these questions, you'll probably get better answers.

    they are double voice coil, each coil at 4 ohms.. rms at 1000w with a 2000w peak.

    oh sorry, i mistyped.. its not a poineer SUB .. its a Power Acoustik sub.

    what ohm load are the voice coils?

    Hmmm, well first off, if they are power acoustik, they do not handle 1kW constant. 500 would probably be pushing it. Now, if you have 3 woofers, running each speaker's voice coils in series will give you a nominal 8ohm load per driver. Then wire the 3 drivers in parallel. You get a 2.67 ohm load. You could run a Lanzar Vibe 1200D at that impedence and still get a good 600 to 700w out of it before clipping. Quite frankly, that is probably enough to drive those subwoofers. Or you could get the JBL 1200.1, that will put out around 1kW into that load.
