    New setup, but worried about the amp...thoughts?

    Just bought a few new parts to replace my old setup in my 03 Civic coupe:

    Old Setup:
    HU: Alpine CDA-9815 - http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Z37Erqv...x?i=500CDA9815
    Amp: Eclipse EA3422 4/3/2 channels - http://www.mobileonesales.com/Produc...uctCode=EA3422
    Fronts: MB Quart RVF 216 - http://www.mbquart.com/en/produkte/c...php?nr=rvf_216
    Sub: Alpine Type-R 10” Sub http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...odel=SWR-1042D
    Rears: Stock

    New Setup:
    HU: Alpine CDA-9886 - http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...model=CDA-9886
    Amp: Alpine PDX-5 - http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...hp?model=PDX-5
    Fronts: MB Quart RVF 216 - http://www.mbquart.com/en/produkte/c...php?nr=rvf_216
    Sub: None (going to buy later)
    Rear: Infinity Kappa 6x9’s (only one fit in stock mounts) - http://www.crutchfield.com/S-k2vDWVf...spx?i=1086927I

    I am not really an enthusiast or anything I just like to listen to music on my way to places and I wanted to make sure that the items I bought are going to play nice…especially the amp as that is the item I am worried about the most.

    I have found nay reviews about the PDX-5, and in the past everyone said to stay clear of 5 channel amp as they tend to have some issues with powering subs. I specifically wanted a 5 channel as I do not have much room in my trunk and need something small.

    Anyway how does my setup look and anyone have a suggestion on a 10” sub enclosed that would go well with the amp?

    alpine pdx has no problem powering the sub, i have installed a few of them and have been very pleased, they tend to even be underrated
    Personally i dont think there is a better 5 channel in that price range
