one amp or three is up to you.
one amp won't make them hit harder, unless it offers more power.
the hardest part of using one amp for three subs is matching proper load and figuring out the power you'll get from the amp.
one amp is easier to wire for sure but whomever told you that using one amp will make the subs hit harder without any other qualifiers is a moron.
I use one amp her sub in my car for two subs.
mainly because it was hard enough to find two class AB amplifiers that put out 1,000 watts each.
Finding one that offered 2Kw at the same quality would be nearly impossible, and considerably more expensive.

I have to admit, I really can't stand Sony either, but that's my view and I try to reserve it for threads that actually ask for my opinions.. *laugh*
anyway, no need for hostility.. from anyone. All it does is beget more bad feelings and aggressiveness.

so shut up before I come over and break your windows!
er, no wait..

lol a Sony demo car drove through my town the other day, it was a green Focus with a huge Xplod decal consuming the sides of the vehicle. I was tempted to walk up to the car and give some fake oohs and aahs and then let him listen to my system :-)

I think you should put three becuz in the event that one amp blows u still got ur 2 other subs hitting, but other than that there really isnt much of a difference.
