Sam,

The Void V18-1000 has TS parameters similar enough to the JBL drivers that it should work OK in the cabinets. The speakers are rated 1000 watts AES each, so depending on the type of program material you run, look for an amp capable of 700-2000 watts per driver.

Well, Void uses Void amplifiers, Rog Mogale's  39.5 kg (87 pounds) Infinite V8 is the unit in the Void line with that much power.

I'd prefer the SpeakerPower Torpedo SP4000, rated 4000W/2 ohm, 2400W/4, 1300W/8, it weighs only 7 lbs, and costs a lot less.
