Simple guide lines really rich are check the ohms of the said speakers ... 2ohm speakers require a mono amp to run them.
4 ohm speakers are on regular amps.
You want to also be aware that its not the power output thats important but the rms power output on the speakers that you need to match to the amp you choose.
You want an amp the is around 80% the rms per channel of the speakers to ensure you dont kill the speakers if you get a spike in audio level.. Either that or match the rms per channels but keep the amp power output at around 70% output.
Speakers tend to perform better at this level and flop out over that with poorer sound quality and coils that break up alot quicker!!
This is how ive always done it from day 1 and its given me good results

I wondered why Rich was asking for advice on wiring subs that have been in his car for years.
