I'm using the 370 Watt Amp for mine; you want to match RMS numbers, not peak values. Mine thumps really nice.

a 600 watt amp will be fine but if you want more bass you will need a bigger amp up to a 2 chanel 2000 watt amp

its ok to run any size amp from 200 to 1000 on these subs. they handle 1200 MAX so if you get 1000 watt amp dont turn it all the way up

well that depends on if your only going to buy one. if you have 2 and you dont bridge them then you can get up to 2400 watt amp. right now i have just a 1400 watt crunch amp hooked up to mine, and it works good, hope to get one more 1400 amp and hook it up to other one of these woofers to get a great kick.

if you read the specs you'll see the Rated watts is 350 and the peak is 1200. you should find an amp that best matches both of these. with the lowest T.H.D. (distortion) percentage.

Buy the sony xplod 1/3 1000 watt amp. DO NOT BRIDGE IT. it will burn the amp up, just hook it up the regular way and you will sound like thunder coming from across towns.... thats the amp i went with, you want to go by RMS... and you want the rms of the subs to be as close as possible to the rms of your amp.. The 1000 watt amp sony has is 370 RMS and each 12" xplod is 350 RMS, PERFECT match... im tellin you, go for it.

it doesnt matter dude any sub can go in either ported or seal... seal is just for a much cleaner bass... but with the ported it allows air n sound to escape better for a louder bass so recommended ported... cause these speakers have a lot of punch
