    it says on the details that it can hold a 4 channel so you can get either one. Really people think to much on this stuff. Go get yourself any 10" you want then a amp of your choice. Id go with a 900 watt amp.

    buggman Do not touch the trim!

    You can add a 2ch, 4ch or multiple amps. As long as you have at least one set of rca preamp outs, you can split the signal to as many amps as you want.

    If you're going to be running all 4 stock speaker locations from a 4ch amp and a sub from a bridged 2ch or a mono amp you will probably have built in crossovers in the amps to ensure the mids/highs don't receive any bass signals that will make them try to reproduce frequencies they're not designed for.

    You could also run a 4ch amp (as long as it's bridgeable to 3 channel mode) for all of your speakers.
    Running the mids/highs on ch 1 & 2 while bridging ch 3&4 mono for a sub. I did this for years in my truck & it worked like a charm.

    the thing that sucks is you have 4 channel preamp outputs on the head unit for the speakers, but no subwoofer pre amp output.

    and you should buy your sub and then buy an amp that matches its power rating. you don't want to spend money on a 900 watt amp then get a sub rated for half that and blow it out quickly.
