    This.

    You'll want an amp that does around 750 @ 2 ohms. Sony xplods probably won't take more than that.



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None

    A little bit of headroom shouldn't hurt though if he has it set properly with a DMM
