Eclipse EA3532 amp

OK,

I am about to buy a system for the car.

For now I am thinking about putting in one 12" SUB and a pair of splits as well as use the 2 existing speakers for now.

I am getting a good deal on the Eclipse EA3532 but I dont know much about it so I need some opinions.

The sub I am getting is probably Performance Teknique ICBM-5712 which is rated 1000W max (apparently 500W RMS) or, if I get lucky, the ICBM-5912 (2000W max).

Not sure about the splits yet.

The specs for the Eclipse amp are as follows:

-105W × 4 channel Max. Power Output at 2 plus 230W x 2 Max. Sub-Out

-60W × 4 channel (2), 120W x 1 channel (4), 0.1% THD Stereo @13.8V (RMS Continuous Power)

-40W × 4 channel (4), 120W x 1 channel(4), 0.1% THD Stereo @13.8V (RMS Continuous Power)

Now, I am not sure what is the best way to hook this up.

I was thinking to only hook up the sub and the splits to the amp, but since the amp is only 5/4 channel would that mean I am wasting the channels?

Also, if I do hook up all 4 speakers and the sub to the amp will there be enough power for everything?

It is just that I keep getting confused with the power ratings.

I mean, say a sub is rated 350W RMS, does that mean that I would need 350W of power out of the amp to run is smoothly?

In any case, what sort of an amp should I be looking for?

I have a couple 3000s and 5000s and cant remember the other two right off hand, but these will not work with your unit that I can think of by viewing your unit

In order to answer your question, I would need to know what model (e.g. SW4200, SW7524DVC). Also, are you looking to make a ported box or sealed?
