Default Amp question

Do you think this would be a good amp to push two 12" alpine type R'* at 2 ohms.Kenwood Excelon X1200M Mono subwoofer amplifier — 1,200 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms at Crutchfield.com

to be honest that amp would under power them by a good bit. it does 800 RMS but was rated at 14.4 volts so would end up doing less than that

I would like it too be CEA 2006 certified as well. I got a price limit of about 400, maybe i should just go all out and get the alpine MRP-M2000 i can find it for like 420$.
