Dual 4 ohm or single 4 ohm?  15, 12, or 10 inch?
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

sounds like your gonna need 2 amps...the 1000/1 is my choice of amp (i own 2) but its not gonna push 2 9500's to their potental..ide go with 1 1000/1 on each sub...and i really dont think jbl is even in the same game, nor on the same level as jl...its like comparing dual to alpine.
jl audio..nuff said

I wouldn't go as far as the dual comparison, but downstarinc is right about needing two amps.  1 wont be enough power.

Well i guess i will just stick with the 2 JBL 1200.1's. Does anyone have any other reccomendations besides the JL 100/1?

thats a horible idea sticking with the jbl's becuse compared to a jl amp they suck but i guess if you are gonna spend all ur money on the subs then who cares just power its with whatever amp you can find, heres an idea why dont you take the money you will save from buying the jbl's or the jl and buy a 3rd 9500 and get some pyle amps to run them off of.

1 Crossfire VR2000d would run those subs nicely. But if you already have 2 JBL 1200.1s' I would run those. I don't know where people get such bad impressions about JBL. They have come a long way in the last few years. I guess some people just like paying for a mainstream "name brand" amp. I've had JL amps before, and compared to the JBL amps I've also had, they are nothing to " write home"  about.  With a good power supply, nicely tuned box, and the correct crossover/gain settings, I think you'll be more than happy with the JBLs' .

Thats' just my 2 cents, but what the hell do I know anyway?

I agree.  JBL amps are perfectly capable.

Have you ever seen the inside of a JBL 6000GTI amp? Or a Digital Designs Z1 amp? If you haven't, I suggest you check them out. It might make you think twice before buying another JL amp.
