    Out of those, the Polk 600.1 is most appropriate. Even though the amps are rated that those wattages they will not produce that in your car. Those ratings are based on 14.4V which is just not gonna happen. You are more likely to give them 13.8v so you can take like 5% to 10% off of those ratings. For instance the 400w RMS may only output 360W RMS in the end with 13.8V input. \

    Make sure to use the Subsonic filter.
