 Unknown what Amp to Use/Classic Subs

Hello all, I have received two classic 10" Subwoofers just the other day in mint condition(only the subs, no enclosure). They are MTX Terminators, black, with red lettering on the cone. Still made in the USA, and the magnet is huge compared to the MTX Terminators made today. I did a little research and learned these were made between 1989 and 1993? All I have is a sticker saying "8 ohms". I have been calling and walking into shop after shop asking what type of amplifier I need to hook these two up in my car, but everyone says try using google if the wattage or RMS is not on the back of the speaker. I am having no luck, and I am hoping someone on here may know of these subs, and what type of amp I need to hook up these classics. I am going to put these in a 2007 Toyota Rav 4 with a V4 engine. This is my first time dealing with subwoofers and amps, and a little help, unlike what I received from my local shops, would be extremely appreciated. Thanks for reading.

A pair of 8ohm subs*, wired parallel* to any amplifier that is rated- 4ohm* minimum impedance. I say any because, unless are the stars are aligned, nothing will prevail.



* Please see BCAE.com for a glossary of terms.

Here is a short youtube video showing the actual sub, is this similar to the subwoofers you speak of? Does this help? Thanks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pft1jn71KW4&feature=channel_video_title Looks like the 1 and 1/2 inch coil model

Right, 10". Thanks for the info. All I need to do now is find out what kind of amp to hook up these two in a box. Thank you again.

250-400 watts rms at 4 ohms....Either a mono block or any older two-channel amp that is 100-150 watts a channel/250-450 bridged.    Look on fleabay at older amps to match them...the old 2150 mtx, etc.  A thor would be a little more ballsy...
