Default What amp do I need?

I have a set of rockford 12" subs. I got them shortly before my old car died. I have kept the subs and have since gotten a new bonneville. My question is (1) what is a good size amp to get for them and (2) there are two sets of lines that run to the 6x9s; which ones do I splice?

Thanks,
Audio Dummy

X2 Please include how many voice coils they have (1 or 2) And what Ohm they are (2 - 4 - Etc)

Once you post that info, you'll soon find out the answer.

Hmm.... not much to go on. They are regular Rockford Punch in a sealed box, with crossover in the box and it runs out to a dual line out of the box. I hope this helps!

Pretty much like the ones found here.

My cousin gave me a 2x 150W amp. Think that would be enough to push them. And...what do I do to keep the trunk lid from vibrating?

Maybe I should just stay under the hood where I am comfortable.
