for nvs 1010's or rubicons 350's you might want to get something a little more substanial than a $200 audiobahn amp... you are getting some really good $1300 tower speakers.. if a amp starts to clip (underpowered, it will cause damage to the speakers).
talk to duanne at nvs or dave at skylon and ask them what amps they used to design the speakers and duanne would more than likely say zapco 750 or 1000, i would suspect skylon would say tru amps (pretty pricey amps)... i heard the rubicons 450's on a zapco 750 refernce and it was very, very good..
btw, zapco is phasing out their older reference series (grey) in favor of the dc reference and you can get the older style at 10% above cost..they are still very, very good amps.
you might want to add a line driver that has at least 8 volts..
i seriously doubt a audiobahn 8002 can take a jl 300/2 (underrated amp with a true regulated power supply... more than likely it was set up wrong - the jl are a bit sopisicated and can easily be set up wrong (ran across this a couple times)..
