        I was going to say 900W RMS (2x300 WRMS + 1200/2 WRMS)

        And that handles whatever impedance you connect them as, and limits the power to each as required...

        And assuming the quoted max power is music power = 2x RMS power. If it is any other "max power" rating, then don't overpower them. (IE, 1200W max can be 150W RMS, hence 750 W RMS). But that depends on how you connect them....

        You probably want to separate the different speakers, ie, one output for the 2 identicals, and one for the other.
        Not that I am an audio or amp expert....

          i am betting the subs are either lower-end sony, pioneer, or rockford fosgate subs-- so the peak figure is useless. (they could have ran a 1khz sine wave to get that...)


          but honestly, it is all a rule of thumb-- i use to run some 125w rms/ 300w max subs off a 600w max amp(it's a sony, so a assumed 300w rms, though prob. less) and never had a problem..

          heat is what destroys a sub-- and you can run a 100w sub with a 1,000w amp as long as you can get rid of the extra heat that the voice coil generates..


          back to the original question-- what is your budget? a cheap amp to me, and a cheap amp to most are 2 different things..
