Default Help: Rockford fosgate 551s power amp or Kicker zx750.1 amp??

I have a JL Audio 10w7 that i'm getting ready to install. I have a choice to run either of these two amps. My question is, which amp would be better to run for one 10 w7? I want to get the most out of the sub with either of these amplifiers. What do you guys think?

The 750.1 will run cooler and likely produce more power.

The 750.1 puts out 750x1 rms @ 2 ohms and the 551s 550x1 rms @ 4 ohms. How would these numbers be affected by the 3 ohm subwoofer?

I am not positive whether it's a single or dual voice coil. Is there a definitive way to tell.by looking at the sub?

It appears (from what I could see on the JL site) that they are either 3 ohm SVC or dual 1.5 ohm voice coils. If it says 3 ohms on the terminals, it's a 3 ohm woofer.

The Rockford could not safely drive it bridged.

Because of the 4 ohm output I assume?

Because the lowest rated load is 4 ohms bridged.

Well Kicker it is then I suppose. Is the kicker amp bridgeable and if not how should I wire it? Btw, thank you for the help. It is appreciated.

There is only one way to wire that sub to that amp.
