Default Car audio freaks?

I recently (well, a year ago) picked up a pair of Kicker SoloBaric L7 10" woofers (4 ohm) from a friend NIB.. Only problem is my current amp isn't nearly powerful enough to drive these things. Not by a long shot.

So I've been looking around for a good amp without breaking the bank. Its looking like I want a monoblock that'll do 2 ohms and push 750 watts RMS, maybe a little more. Each speaker is rated at 1200 watts max and 600 watts RMS.

Basically I'm not spending $1000 on an amp. Not a chance in hell. I stumbled across a Kenwood eXcelon KAC-X1R 1200 watt amp that can be had for around $200.00 but I don't know anyone who used one of these.

RMS Power Output (Watts x Channels)600 x 1
Peak Power Output (Watts x Channels)2400 x 1
Power at 2 Ohms (Watts x Channels)1200 x 1
Bridged Power (Watts x Channels)N/A
Minimum Impedance BridgedN/A
Minimum Impedance Unbridged1
Best Frequency Response5-400 Hz Hz
THD at Rated RMS Power1%
Signal to Noise Ratio80 dB
Input Voltage14.4v

Those are the specs, and I notice right off the bat THD is pretty poor.. My current amp is < 0.1%THD @ max output. Thats hooked up to a 1994 Model year Kicker SoloBaric 12" round woofer in some psycho crazy *** bandpass box.. It sounds REALLY good and thumps pretty hard.. Another thing I just noticed about those specs (came from it lists Bridged as N/A yet the manual for the amp says its 1 ohm stable and says nothinga bout not able to brdige it.... claims "1ohm x 1 >1000watts"

Anyone have any experience with those Kenwood amps, or suggest something similar?
