The Shivas have two voice coils, thus they actually are running 600W. 300W per coil. I think the old Shivas ran at 675W, however.
You can "technically" run as many subs as you want off of one amp. If you're running 1 Shiva, you want 600W, two you'll want to run 1200W.
The JL website has an entire list of wirings for one or more subs.
I would give you the link at the JL website for the wirings, but it looks like it's down...
I think the RF website has the wiring wizard thing... Here it is:
Good luck with everything.
