 Im an audio noob..

Ok, so i have a 2000 Dodge Ram with 2 Planet Audio Zetar 12"s powered by an SPL 600w 4 channel amp. it was a good starter system (i got everything for free except my box, which is also dookie), but it just isnt doin it for me anymore as most of my friends have much higher powered sound systems. Im desperate to find a good amp to push two Kicker CVX 12"s, but i dont even know what ohm rating to go for on the subs. i was thinking maybe get 2 dual 4ohm CVXs and wire em down to 1ohm (i do already know how to do so, as i have looked at the wiring diagram online) but im not entirely sure. i am open to almost any suggestions, but please no flaming my choice of subwoofers. they are cheap and they have decent punch for what im payin for. if it helps, i would like to spend $600 at maximum. Thanks in advance for any and all comments and replies!

Don't take this the wrong way and flaming isn't my goal but you can do a whole lot better than the kickers. Get one sub with a good amp and it will blow the kickers away. there are a lot of underground companies that make amazing equipment.

Get that sub and build a portred box for it. SSA actually has designs on their site for free that work very well. Then get either of the amps I posted and it will sound amazing.

Thanks for the input! the subs are almost set and stone because they are pretty cheap and i do want 2 of them. the amp on the other hand looks pretty nice!
