It all comes down to optium power for the sub. Not sure on what the RMS of your MTX amp is, usually half of what they advertise for peak. so lets say your 940 is realworld power of 470 watts. Let'* just call that 500. So look for a sub setup that will take 500 watts contious power. either 1 sub that will take 500watts or 2 subs rated around 250.
Want to stay close as for amp wattage to sub recommended wattage. Like that sub they listed above 2000-4000 RMS. if you only pushed 1000 watts the sub wouldn't perform correclty. BTW everyone that is a massive sub sure, but it'* sole purpose is to go BURP!!!! not actually sound decent to listening to music.
93- to help clear things up, my bass setup is 1000 watts RMS I'm running 2 10in JL audio W7'* with a recomended rating of 500 watts a piece. The subs are getting good clean power and the subs are operating in their optiumal power range.
As for what subs, previously I had a 500 watt sub amp and pushed 2 10in JLW3'*, you could also go with the 12'* if you wanted. Not too update on other subs out there. Kinda stopped studing speakers and such after my system was complieted.
