 I need to match an amp with my subs

I have two 12 inch Audiobahn AW122T 550W subs, I was wondering what a good amplifier to match them would be. I am looking for an amp in the range of $150-200 . So far, the amps I'm looking at are this one:
PIONEER 760 Watt 2-Channel Power Amplifier with Built-in Crossover
Number of Channels 2
Load Impedance Capability 2~8 Ohm (Stereo), 4~8 Ohm (Bridged)
Continuous Power (4 ohm) 125W x 2
Continuous Power (2 ohm) 190W x 2
Continuous Power Bridged (4 ohm) 380W x 1
Frequency Response 10Hz ~ 50kHz
Total Harmonic Distortion 0.008%
Signal-to-Noise Ratio 100dB
Dimensions 12" x 2-3/8" x 12-3/4"
Bridgeable
Channel # Capability 1/2/3
PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
Screw-Type Speaker Terminals
Balanced Isolator Input Circuit
RCA Inputs 2 Channel
Input Level Control Hi-Volt (200mV ~ 6.5v)
Built-in Crossover Selectable LPF (80Hz -12dB/Oct.)
and this one:

KENWOOD KAC-7251 2
POWER RATINGS
- Bridged Power Output at 14.4V (1kHz, 0.8% THD): 460 Watts x 1
- Maximum Output Power: 800 Watts
- Power Output at 2 Ohms, at 14.4V (1kHz, 0.8% THD): 230 Watts x 2
- Power Output at 4 Ohms, at 14.4V (20Hz-20kHz, 0.08% THD): 150 Watts x 2
AUDIO FEATURES
- 2 or 1 Channels of Amplification
- Ground Isolation Circuit
- High-Pass Electronic Crossover: 150Hz, 12dB/oct (Switchable)
- Quiet Turn-On
- RCA Audio Inputs: Gold-Plated
- Speaker Connectors: Screw-Type
- Speaker Level Input Terminals: Plug-Type

- Stereo, Mono, or Tri-Mode Operation
- Variable Low-Pass Electronic Crossover: 50Hz - 200Hz, 18dB per Octave
- Bass Boost: Off/+6/+9/+12dB (Remotely-Controllable)
POWER SUPPLY FEATURES
- 2-Ohm Stable
- Copper EE-Core Power Transformer
- Noise Supression Filter: Toroidal
- Power Input Terminals: Gold-Plated, Large Screw-Type
- Power MOSFET Switching Power Supply
- Power Supply Fuse: 2 x 30A
- Secondary Capacitors: 2
I also was wondering about theft prevetion. I can't afford a security system right now, so I'm going to find other methods of preventing my system from getting stolen. I was thinking I could bolt my subwoofers down to the trunk and using those funky screws that are used on computers for my subwoofer box (hoping there will be big enough screws). Are there any other alternatives to theft prevention besides an alarm that I could use for the time being? (I'm planning on getting an alarm later when I have the money)

since audiobahn is overrated, i would say those subs are anywhere from 400-450w rms, soo look into the MTX801d/kickerkx600.1/JBL600.1/hifonics brutus bx1000d/MTX942.2 any of those amps(except maybe hifonics)will be better then those amps you posted

Well... "since audiobahn is overrated" (quoting), I would get the Hifonics amp, as it also is overrated, so they would make a perfect match for me :D, I think that amp puts out about 950watts or so...
