single voice coil 4 ohm subs. wire them together down to 2 ohms and throw
http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...model=MRP-M450
on to it. ~$230 and it is a sweet sweet amp. could probably be had for cheaper.

Yup, single coil 4-ohm subs, 200W RMS each, so you're looking for potential of 400W RMS @ 2-ohms or there abouts. I would probably also go with the Alpine MRP-M450 for an inexpensive, yet good amp.

No way...stick with alpine ,especially if you gonna buy those polk momos.those are pretty good subs and you gonna need a good amp to push them..go with anything from alpine,rockford fosgate,pioneer,even kenwood has some pretty good amps and also jbl and last but not least jl audio

That Blau would work fine too. Personally I like the Alpine better but it is 50% more cost... Either one should be just peachy though. 400 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms is what you're looking for.
