I have had good luck with MTX, Kicker, Eclipse, JL, and Alpine amps. I have had bad luck with PPI.

Right now, I am working on a glove-box mounted 100x4 Alpine PDX F4 amp to power components up front and an 8" sub in the back. I just got done selling a slightly more powerful JL HD600/4 (150x4) and that was about the same, just louder.

Whatever you get, make sure you do the right thing and get a warranty.

I'd do the alpine power pack/power brick true 44 rms by 4 and I only set the gains a quarter of the way and it is so loud it's 150 brand new and fits behind the radio perfectly.

I agree use the Alpine power pack, it is so tiny and will fit anywhere. The power is fine for factory speakers and it doesn't sound bad for a small amp.
