    I believe those are single VC so they would make a 2 ohm load. Something around 750-1000 @ 2ohm would work.

    i dont know if u guys are too familiar with 2006 ford f150 extended cabs but they dont have much room under the seats and none behind the seats. this guy at a very popular car audio place where i live said i would only be able to fit 1 10" in there for proper air space. will these 2 12"s sound better than 1 10" with the lack of air space?

    well it all depends on what 10 you would use and how much air space you could give it

    From what I looked up, these can handle the same power as the cvr's so i would go with the zx750.1, that's what i'm goin with for mine and it thumps hard when hooked up.

    i strongly recommend sinfoni amplifiers (see www.cgena.com)...

    although it's pricey it could give you the best quality

    Super expensive amps aren't needed for a subwoofer. The small amount of distortion in a decent quality amplifier will not be noticed. You don't need to spend a fortune. Kicker, Alpine, and JL are good brands to look at for amps. If you will buy used, then look into old school Zed-made amps. Great quality and dependability, and you can usually find them at very low prices.
