    I could be wrong but I always figure the best bet is to go with same brand and match the watts up. Unless someone corrects me I say 300w jl

    Great buy on this right now.... Alpine MRX-M50 at $199.

    Don't turn the gain up high (i.e. be respectful of the gear) and not only do you get a great amp, at a great price, but it also gives you room to add another or upgrade to a new sub later down the road without having to worry about what will work with your amp

    Its a decent price, but we are talking about a 150w rms sub.

    All you need, OP, is a fairly low power 2 channel (50-75x2) bridged to the sub.

    If you think you may want to upgrade, a mono amp that does ~150-200w @ 4 ohm will be great.

    IF I had to buy something on the cheap, I would pick up one of these, and know I got a fantastic deal, on a solid amp:

    Not necessarily wrong because some people prefer to have their system all from one brand, if I had the money I'd have everything JL except the deck, it's just a matter of personal opinion. An example of that is that my opinion Kicker amps are awesome but their speakers are ok.
