Default Best amp for 2 12" Solo X's?

My friend just got 2 12" Kicker Solo X's. He wants to know what the best amp is. Everyone knows what there rated at but anyone know how much they can truly handle daily? Any first hand experience would be great. And there is no price range, and it'll be at 1 ohm or .5 ohm. I'll double check.

the solox is only rated at half of what kicker publishes "in a ported box" don't ask me why but thats what they do.
so to run at rms you need 2500rms for both, if you want to try and push past that (which solox's are not known for reliability) you could run 4-5k
what coil subs?

I would agree here. I ran/blown more than people have probably heard. If for daily a good 3k would be good and loud. Comp they will handle a lot for short time. But sound loud off little power just don't Mic much.

IIRC the solo x has a 3.5" coil right? Seems not accurate for that coil to run 5k daily
