Hey everyone, need some advise. I have 2 JBL MP255 Sub Bass Loud speakers. Power Capacity 500 W normal, impedance 4 ohms, Peak Power 2000 W, Frequency range 32hz-180hz (-10db), Frequency responce 38hz-160hz (+- 3db). I was looking at the at the XTI4000 or the XTI4002,  or maybe get 2 XLS2000 amps. I dont want to over do it on the amp for the subs, finances are not great right now. I am trying to get an amp that has the power for the subs and sound great, but not break the bank. Let me know what you guys think. Also the best place to buy the amps from. Thanks again

I think a single XTi4002 would do great with these speakers.  For a little cheaper, you could use two XLS1000 or XLS1500 and run each in bridge-mono.  The XLS2000's would be too much power.

I would go with one XTi4002, and run one sub per channel.  As far as where to buy the best place is probably the internet if you don't have any local stores.  Try sweetwater.com.
