ok, i dont think my amps giving each sub 500 watts rms each, their wired together at 2.6 ohms, but my amps not even all the way up to power them and its only a 1600 watt sony, its 3/4 the way up, how can this 1 amp power 3 subs... shouldnt i need a 1500watt rms amp?

No. As I told you earlier, you can provide all the woofers in the array (thousands of them, literally) with one watt, and they'll still function.
You are apparently expecting too much from the amplifier, and you think you are not getting it...
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

nah im not expecting alot from sony, its just idk, its odd, i never thought this sony would be able to power 3 12s...
im trying to think of it logically instead of electronically sorta... its odd that i can explain how im thinking, but its just odd that that sony amp i got for $50 is turning out to be a "good" investment at the moment

Any amp can be used to power any number of speakers, it really does not matter.   It's all about what you are trying to accomplish.
