Default Help me choose an amp?

Whats up guys, I have a 92 Honda Prelude, and a D2 Soundstream XXX 18 due to arrive here next week. I've been looking around at what amp(s) to get for it, but i just cant make up my mind.
Ratings say these subs are good for 6000+ rms. But that number seems like a load of Horse S**t. What amps would you guys recommend?
I know it wont be super cheap, but please keep in mind than Navy E4 pay doesnt exactly give me a whole lot of room to play with. I'd like to keep it around $800 or lower if possible.

Thank You!

Soundstream xxx's will take there rated poorer... the 18 should be 10k and 15 will take 8.5k

A solid 5k can put it to work no problem

I have a 275amp alt (Cant Remember who made it)
For batteries atm, i have 3 Yellow tops. But they're old as F, not holding power the way they need to, and will soon be replaced by 2, possibly 3 XS Power D3400's

How much do they actually push at 1ohm? Lanzar for the most part tends to be one of those companies that usually overrates their amps by a lot.

opti's do really well, they are beefy amps... wire youre xxx to 1ohm and the opti is rated at [email protected] so should get pretty loud for you.
