    Do you have an aftermarket deck or are you planning on running this off your factory deck?

    I'm pretty sure that Kenwood is grossly overrated at 500 watts rms. No $200 amp is going to put out that kind of real power. Either way, they'll probably both perform about the same. I would just go with whatever one you like.

    A 10w1 shouldnt need that much power. I think you'll be fine with either of the amps you posted. Get the JL amp if you want to be uniform with brand.
