Are you after an amp design? cause if you are just after a recommendation for a car amp, i'd suggest a car audio store.

Default Amp to drive Kicker boxes.

Are the subs actually "Kicker" brand? If so, the enclosure will have much to do with the required power. If you choose a sealed enclosure which will play into the trunk, don't expect great bass. If you find a capable sub enclosure builder, ask him to design a bandpass enclosure with a partially external, square (so it won't whistle) port which exits from the top of the box. It can pass through a square cutout in the parcel shelf and deliver deep, tight, bass to the INSIDE of the car! P.

It is more than just the amplifier. You need an enclosure suited to the woofers as well as an overall goal in mind to what you want them to do. Are you after SPL only, SQ only, or all-round utility?

I'm looking for an all around system with good SPL and sound quality.

Any good sub amp capable of 500 wrms will do those VR's well. There's dozens of choices.
