About a month ago i bought 2 rockford fosgate 10's and i was wondering what amp would be good for them?
right now i have a insignia 1000 watt powering them, but they just dont seem to be hitting as hard as they could.
these are the exact ones

If you give me the exact model of subwoofers that you bought, then I'll recommend you the perfect amplifier.
It looks like you have 2 150 watt RMS subwoofers. Both subwoofers are rated a 4 ohms. What you want to do is run those subwoofers in parallel, which will create a 2 ohm impedance. And once you are at a 2 ohm impedance, you want to use a mono channel amplifier since mono channel amplifiers are stable at a 2 ohm impedance. More information about that can be found here:
And since both subwoofers are are 150 watts RMS, you want to get an amplifier that is rated DOUBLE that since you have 2 subwoofers. So a 300 watt, mono channel amplifier will work great as long as you wire the subwoofers in parallel. I would recommend buying either of the following subs:
Good luck! Please ask if you are still confused about anything.

go to stereo shop and ask for the equivelant to a rockford fosgate punch150.....they dont make them anymore but they make one close and it will thump a pair of tens nicely when hooked up mono

match the rms wattage of the subs, and stick with a rockfort fosgate amplifier!!!
