1 or 2 Subs?

Im just getting started with learning about car audio and ive learned a lot already but im still confused about some pretty basic things like, is a 4 channel 1000 wat amp with 2 500 wat subs better than a 2 channel 1000 wat amp and 1 1000 wat sub?

And when looking at RMS, its the higher the better?

And what sub would go good with the JL Audio e2150 2-channel amp? The JL audio 12W0-4 12in Subwoofer? My friends recomend power acoustic amps and audiobahn sub/amp a lot too. i can spend about $400 total for subs and an amp.

I have so many other questions but these are the main ones that i was wondering about. Any websites you think i should visit to learn about subs and amps would be very appreciated too (i already went to the newb faq).
Thanks

audiobahn is horrible, i know from perosnal experience. i dont know the specs on the amp so i cant help you there.

www.reaudio.com < i got 2 12REs and a hifonics NX400 and it hits hard, and the entire setup cost 347$ w/ wiring kit and box, which was self built.

Re: 1 or 2 Subs?

you do that, as long as the RE's have atleast 1.5 cubes and the proper watage they will hit hard as hell, for a low end sub. if you can swing it get one of the upper models. but ive heard the RE12's and they sound crisp and clear, as well as pretty loud, for only tkaing 200 watts. hell thye broke the first box i made for them, vibrated the top so much it ripped the screws out, i had to use more and longer screws its got like 6+456846846 screws holding that piece on. but yea let us know if you need anymore help.

^^should have glued it

If you can afford an SE 12 or even 15 id get it but RE's are good subs. hell 8 8's hit 143 on term lab with a total of 300w (they are 175w RMS each).
