I would never drive a subwoofer with a 4 channel amp. I'd hook that bad boy up to my 4 door speakers, that is a nice amp, but not good for subwoofers.

i would run 1 MA audio Xe sub off of 2 channels or run 2 MA subs off of all 4 channels.(2 channels per sub) THe MA's are relatively low power,sound great (IMO), and aren't too expensive. I ran 2 12's in my firebird with a 4 channel amp and they sounded great. i can get links and stuff if you want

Since your a std cab I would drive your door speakers with 2 channels and a single sub with the other 2 channels. Thats the best way to get the most out of that amp. Looks for speakers that consume little power. Most likely a 10". A kicker Comp might due the trick but itz been a while since I looked at the specs on those.

I had all 4 speakers in my standard cab along with the sub and I have to say it sounds better with all 4. You may think you cant hear them, but you can. I faded my speakers to the front a couple of times and i could tell a difference without the rears. Thats a good amp. You should set it up for all 4 speakers. It would be great.

i second that idea, minus th comp... 4 channels= take 2 channels and amp a pair of door speakers, need some good ones to handle 100wrms
then bridge the other 2 for 275rms for a sub, lots of different subs you could use, do you want it loud or sound good

for loud a kicker comp vr or L5 would do fairly nice and for sq try out an infinity perfect , many other different ones though
