i personaly am working off 2x JL10w3 at 500watts

... you can basically put as much as you'd like to have in your car - this is why they sell high voltage caps and custom batteries... it's the same reason you may see 1200watt AMPs and people who put several of these into their vehicles at one time...

800 watts should do fine for you with those subs. I'm running 2 JL 12W3's with a 1x500 JL amplifier (Also, have 400w for the mb quart components).
