those are nice subs; verry similar to infinity kappa 12s. These subs need power to sound good. I would reccomend a 500W+ mono block. Then get a pair of 4 ohm subs. and wire them in parrallel.
pm me; if you need for more info.

Is this to much for the JBL GTO subs? This is the enwood eXcelon KAC-X522 2 Channel Amplifier 1000 Watt? Anyone have an experience with kenwood or this amp?

so the Phoenix gold is good power? This isnt to much? I dont want to blow my subs. However you sound like you know what you are talking about.
Pheonix Gold , make very nice reliable amps. Those are amps that work and give you no issues. It is always better to overpower a sub than to under power it. Getting a 800W amp doesn't mean that you have to use all of them. It means that you will not be oerstressing the amp and you will always get clean power. Slightly extra power doesn't blow subs; it is unclean power or distorsion. I have a 300W JL 12w3v2 sub getting 400W for more than 3 years with no issues. I would reccomend professional installation; and the installer will set it up properly. Just tell him to set it up so it sounds as good as possible w/o blowing.
PS After install don't play with the bass knob on the radio; you can turn it down if you like but not up. I am pretty sure the PG amp comes with remote bass knob that will allow you to control bass level from your seat.
