Exclamation Need an Idea for an amp/box

Right now I need to power 2, 1000 watt rms subs... and I can't really find anything in like best buy/futureshop/any of the car audio places near by. Theres an MTX amp that i could use, but it will run them at 800rms rather than the 1000 that of course i want. Any ideas?
Oh and any one have any suggestions for a box design?

Well box design depends on cab config. (And we cant figure that out because of no sig.)
What do you got? Regular cab or super cab

your better off getting a more powerful amp and running it at less than 100% power. if you run an less powerful amp at full power you risk burning it out.

and clipping your subs to death in the process. Never match a 1000 watt amp with 1000 watt subs. I would buy a MINIMUM of a 1200 watt rms amp.

Yeah, I read wrong. What kinda subs do you have anyways? That would work fine if you can find one but its kinda overpriced for 2400 watts.

Please don't. Mixing subs is a BIG No No.

I was starting to think that I should keep one and just have the second for my car, or sell it to one of my less than knowledgeable friends.
