Moved your post to a section where someone other than spambots will see it .

PPI and Soundstream were old school great products- they were bought by Power Acoustik and went to crap, but ironically are on the comeback trail in the form of solid entry level bang per buck amplifiers.

The subs are DVC 4 ohm? If so, a mono amp with a 1 ohm final load would be a good fit. Budget for amp?

This is a solid budget choice with more clean power on-tap than you require:

Rf still makes decent amps. As mentioned PPI & Soundstream have made a comeback. The ST series from Zapco is pretty good and not too pricey.
