you'd do fine with about 300 watts each so a 1200 watt amp (RMS) would do fine.

the channels, load, etc will depend on the subs you buy and how their coils are set up.

if you want to run 4 subs, you'll want each sub to be 2 ohms, or dual 4 ohm coils.
this will allow you to wire everything together for a single 2 ohm load.
then find an amp rated for 1200wRMS x 1 @ 2 ohms

a few examples:
JBL BP1200.1
Kicker SX1250.1 (I think.. may be @ 1 ohm for this one)
JL Audio 1000/1
MTX Thunder1501D (I think that's the model)
Orion 1200D

really whatever fits your budget and has that power rating.
