    How many subs do you plan on using? I just checked the specs on Best Buy's website and the sub is rated for 150w RMS (don't bother looking at peak power). Also, depending on the # of subs you are using it will affect how they are wired (series/ parallel), which in turn affects what amp you'll need.

    I like Rockford Fosgate, but Kicker is an excellent brand as well ! Check out crutchfield.com or some online reailters they usually offer competivie pricing and a bigger inventory to chose from. I'm running a 2 channel 400 rms (bridged) pushing two tens.

    Kicker is definitely a good idea. I am running a single 12" L5 and a 1200 watt mono amp. Sounds pretty good!

    Kicker over rates their amps. The 750 only puts out about 300 RMS at 12 volts.. They like to rate the amps at 14 volts. Your truck will not put that much volts into that amp...

    I wouldn't go with a Kicker amp. If you're going to spend the money, the amp will likely outlast the subs. Therefore, you'll want to buy a good quality amp (I recommend JL Audio) which will be enough power if you decide to upgrade your subs.
