Default What do you guys recommend?

What's up guys. I'm a long time reader but first time poster. I have a question for you audio buffs. I recently purchased 2 12" Alpine Type R DVC subs for my '00 Civic Si. I was wondering what amp do you think is best to power these? I've done alot of research and haven't been able to narrow down my choices much.

Any help, info or suggestions is appreciated...Thanks!

There's not really a limit on price, although I don't want to spend $1000 for a 1200w monster. Anywhere between $200 and $600 is what I'm looking at.

Get the JBL BP600.1
That's the amp I'm getting. I found it for 205 bucks. And another place for 225 bucks. Great budget amp for someone who needs some decent power. That's why I'm getting it.
