Will 2 500/1 amps make 2 10w6v2's pound?

My question is, will (2) JL Audio 500/1's make (2) 10W6v2's pound? Are two 500/1's powering two 10w6v2's overkill?

might be a little overkill.

I had 300w amp going to a 12w6v2 and it pounded.

I think that might be too much, I got a 500/1 on 2 12W3v2s and it's too damn loud for me If u really need that much power, why not get a 1000/1 instead of 2 500/1 amps?

hey djhyetk, nice install, looks clean No pics yet, I haven't re-installed the equipment in my ///M yet, just bought the car not too long ago. The JL equipment was in my old Acura, and now it's sitting in my garage. I'll get it hooked up again soon though, the stock HK system is killing me
