o ok the guy at the place i bought the box said i should get 100 watt because the rms of both together is 760w and if i had abigger amp they would bleed too much.. i got them workingh a lot better now though because the wires werent hooked up right and the subs were out of phase

ok, so i looked them up and i found 400w RMS each.

your going to want something close to 800w RMS @ 2ohm

what model number is the Sony amp?
It is certainly underpowered with that 100w amp though

this is pretty much a perfect match - just set the gain a tad nelow max and your all set
