The 12s are a beast, it takes some power to move those 7 inch woofers, I would recommend at least 200 watts on them to get them to sound good and prevent damage. I was biamping them with Outlaw M2200s monoblocks paired with my Sony 7100es AVR. They performed well, however Im now running 525 watts to each speaker with my new Magnum 1000s from D-sonic and they sound excellent now. Bottom line, the 3808 will do the trick at low to med volume levels, however I recommend an amp, 200 watts or more bro. Use that Denon as your pre/pro and go seperate amplification.
