Right Amp for 2005 TJ

Does anyone have any advice for the right amp to power these speakers. I'm going to use the in-seat sub enclosure for the shallow mount sub and put the Polks in the dash and soundbar. I'm not too savvy with figuring out how much it takes to push each one. I would like to use a single amp if possible in a concealed location to keep my investment on the stealth side.

Pioneer TS-SW2501S2 10-Inch Shallow Subwoofer with 1200 Watts Max Power

Product Image
Polk Audio DB521 5.25-Inch Coaxial Speakers (Pair, Silver)

Sorry the links did not show up as URL I'm a newbie and not quite sure how to make it work.

The subwoofer would like 300 watts RMS and your speakers will scream with 45 watts RMS

What kind of budget are you working with?

Just remember like with most things in life, you get what you pay for....

Alpine's MRX-V60 would be a good choice for the equipment you have listed.

I'm try to keep it around $700 for the speakers and the amp, and I already have the head unit.

The Alpine seems to be pretty decently priced and a pretty compact unit which is a plus cause I'm trying to keep as much interior space as possible.

Thanks for the input.
