    I've come to the decision to sell most of the stuff I currently have in the truck and go for a more SQ oriented system (currently it's straight SPL). I was thinking about getting a pair of IDQ 12s and focal polyglass 165v3 for my component system (midbass in the door, midrange + tweet in kickpods most likely). Need some help picking amps though, looking for y'alls recommendations. Any comments are appreciated as well :)

    Oh, and budget for amps I'd like to keep close to or under a grand (that dosn't include the subs & comp set).

    I'm looking at that Crossfire VR804, looks like it'd fit my needs perfectly. Can use the front channels to run the component set and then bridge the rear channels for the sub(s). My other question is how much power do the IDQ's like to take? Crossfire's site says it puts out 400w bridged @ 12.5 volts (so it'd be bit higher than that in reality). Would I be better off sticking one IDQ on that back channel or getting 2?
