Is that 470 W RMS total over 4 channels (equivalent to a single 1 ohm load) or is that 470W x 4 channels and each channel is 1 ohm?

This series of articles should offer you some ideas on how to size the components for your amp(s).

Would a woodchuck bother to chuck MDF?

1,000,000 uF should work very well, but be sure to use at least 8 A rectifiers and at least an 18 AWG power cord.
