Need some help guys

Looking to put a system into my car and I'm lost. I use to be big into car audio and got out of it for awhile but now so many things have changed. What I'm looking at doing right now is changing the stock head unit out which is a in-dash cd changer. I'm also looking at adding either one or two 12" sub woofers to the trunk.

So far this is what I've found;

1. Alpine CDA-9883 CD Receiver
2. Kicker Comp VR 07CVR124 12" Dual 4-Ohm Voice Coil Sub
3. Q-Logic QLH-1.0012SS Single 12" Hatch/Trunk Box-Vol=1.0 cubic


So from there I'm lost as to what it would take to push this sub, and I may add a second sub to it so the amp needs to be big enough to push both.

I suggest the Kicker ZX750.1. But you will need the dual 2 ohm sub. It will run the amp at 4 ohm with about 300-400 watts. Then when you get the second sub, get another dual 2 ohm. If wired correctly the will run at 2 ohm with 750 watts. You could aslo use Kicker's ZX1000.1. It will do 1000 watts at 2 ohm. It all depends on how much money you want to spend.

That H/U is great. I have the '06 model of that. I would suggest just running the single 12" & run this amp to it:http://www.cardomain.com/item/KIC06ZX4001. Then put a little more $$ into a custom built box. It will sound 10x better.
