Ok so im thinking about running with the Alpine Class D 500w amp. I was wondering if i could use this amp to power 1 sub and 4 speakers, or would i need 2 amps? Thanks.

Well that amp will run the sub only. Id think about getting either a bigger amp or another amp for your speakers.

You need a 5 channel amp, or a mono and a 4 channel...
