you really shouldn't mix different size and level of subwoofers you'd probabaly ge better off adding 2 more 10 w3's. Or you could go w/ the 2 8 w7's or 1 10w7. You don't want to mix the subs though.

Hmmm, well i don't know your budget, but if your set on jl audio, i'd ditch your old 10w3v2's and that kenwood amp and pickup one more 10w7 and a jl 1000/1. That would be loud and sound really good. Someone correct me if im wrong but I think those two subs work perfect with that amp.... if there both 3 ohm subs, wired in parallel, that gives a 1.5 ohm load, and I think that amp is 1000 watts rms at 1.5 ohms - 4. And imo I don't recomend using different types of subs or different sizes.

Easiest thing to do would be to go to JL's website & match sub(s) to amp(s) there .

Being 300W RMS and 3 ohm, you'd need an amp that does around 400W at 2 ohm. The Kicker Kx400.1 and the JL E1400D are good examples.
