Amp?
Buy an Alpine MRX-M110
$279 at sonicelectronics as we speak. Great monoblock amp.
Run your subs paralleled and get 650 watts to EACH sub. Done!
For this AMP, I see that if I run them at 4ohm, one channel, I get 650 Watts each, but @ 2ohm, it runs 1100W and I have 2 subs, so that wouldn't cover enough power. Correct me if I am wrong.

If I want to run 2ohm on both subs, and still want each to get at least 650w +, what do i need?

I was looking at the Black 10V2 in a sealed box. What would you recommend for an Amp for that set up?

Better yet you could go with the PAC audio C2A-CHY2 if you can find one. No need to find the right speaker wire to splice into.

I couldn't find any videos with a how to install for and LOC.

I think you should be looking for an am with 1500 rms.

Honestly; you are choking a 12 in a less than 1 cuft box. I have had four different ones in my netaudio box, and there is differences, but still driving a good ARC Audio 800wrms to it doesn't give a whole lot more than the previous one that was using 320wrms. Only so much movement that can be had with that small space. Go with dual tens if you want the best performance. I am going to have Paul do a dual SD-8 driver-side box for me here soon, but it will be in addition to my single 12 passenger box not replacing it. I personally think that the dual 8's with the correct air space will be little louder than the single 12 because they are going to allow me to run 4 coils and almost twice the power of course using still the factory airspace without raising the seat. Most of the 12's that run serious power the magnets are too large to fit in the shallow box. I'll let you know how it turns out. He did the dual 8 box already for a guy last month and I haven't seen the sound report from them yet.

I found a link to what appears to be a reputable online company:

http://pacificstereo.com/pac-c2a-chy...FZE7MgodnSYAfQ

Now I just need to find a good Mono 1500 RMS, Class D Amp rated to do 2ohms!

run both subs off the one channel. That'd be 550 watts each

Is there enough room on the drivers side to put 2 8's. He made a box with a single on the driver and dual on passenger.

Net Audio has a lot of photos on their facebook page for that install, the 3 SA8's. I asked about it, since I initially was going to for 2 SA8's, and they said it was loud as hell, but not the highest quality of sound. Looks amazing though. I trust Net Audio, but "not the highest quality" is vague in the grand scheme of things. I spoke with them yesterday about their Arc Audio line, and they spoke higher of it than the Sundowns.

https://www.facebook.com/netaudiowf?ref=ts&fref=ts

I saw one other guy do it the same install somewhere and he too had 2 8's on the passenger side and 1 on the drivers, so maybe there is some sort of space restriction on the drivers side.

I think that might be me you are thinking of. I have a few pics on my build thread of the sundowns in a netaudio box with three sa8. It's he same one that is on his Facebook page Paul is making me a dual ported for sa8s right now for the passenger side.

I just like the idea of 3 SA 8's. It looks awesome and I can't imagine how it sounds. The reason I went from 8's to 12's was I didn't think the 8's could hit the lower tones, how do they do? The fact that they're 8's made me think their response would be really good, so it would strike the balance of SQ and SPL.

What AMP(s) are you running? and right now, all 3 8's are sealed?
