    To power 2 Rockfort Fosgate HE 10's. I'm looking to spend around $300 or less depending on what your guys opinions on what I need. I don't know squat when it comes to this so any help would be appreciated.

    Step 1- Sell Subs
    Step 2- Buy some subs that are worth a shit
    Step 3- Come back and ask the question.

    No seriously, go on ebay, and if you want to stay all fosgate you will definitely be able to find something to power those subs to their limits and still have money left over.

    How about a Lanzar vibe 1200d?

    Woah, good choice, but thats way too much for those fosgates, they only need 400 watts RMS between them.

    Well, he didnt specify box size, or even the type of music he listens to. I would assume they are 4ohm loudspeakers so when wired in paralllel he would get a 2ohm load. The amplifier is supposed to put out 800w constant into 2ohms, or 400w per driver, that sounds fine to me.

    No I meant those subs are 200 watts RMS each, they only need 400 watts between them.
