best amp to power two kicker 10's

hey guys i just bought a box and 2 kicker 10s to fit in the back of the wrangler off ebay, looking for the best amp to power these and have $120 to do that

specs on the subs are: Kicker C10 10" Subwoofer Single 4 Ohm 150 Watts (10C10-4) this is straight from the website and keep in mind i have (2) tens not (1)

i would perferably like to buy the amp off of ebay, and keep in mind i have $120 to do it, not very good with amps so thats why im asking, thanks for the help

You will want an amplifier that is able to deliver full power into a 2 ohm load. Most likely, this will be a mono block (single channel) amplifier. As far as specifics to be found on ebay... There are probably about a thousand different amps that would "work". First one that comes to mind for me is a fusion 900 watt mono amp. I sell it for $150 in my shop, looks like it would fit right into your price range on ebay -

Power acoustik amps are pretty good for cheap too. I had a gothic series (mind you this was in like 03) powering some audiobahn 12"s and that thing pounded...till my accord leaked water in the trunk. Pulled it out still worked but the box my subs in got soaked lol. I was an idiot...

in my old truck, i used to have the same kickers except they were 12s. i used a kicker kx400.1 amp. if you have an extra $30, i highly recommend this amp. got it from that website

KICKER 08 ZX400.1 R CLASS D AMPLIFIER MONO 400W AMP - eBay (item 400187724032 end time Feb-11-11 18:19:09 PST)

now in my jeep ive got the same kicker 10s but am using a kenwood 1000 watt amp instead. its the kac-8105d. looks like it fits perfectly in your price range Kenwood Kac-8105D 1000-Watt Class D Mono Amplifier: Electronics

i bought the two tens, box, and amp off craigslist for $130. i think i did alright
anyway, what kind of box are you using? do you have any pictures?
