AMP Help and Sub Suggestions


I have a 2011 Ram 1500 Quad Cab (not the stock alpine system)

JBL (by Harmon) GTO 509C 5 1/4 component set. Peak Power = 225W with RMS of 75W. Impedance = 3 ohms. Installing in the rear doors.
JL Audio C2 - 350X Evolution C2 3 1/2 (put in my dash slots). Peak Power = 75 Watts. RMS = 10 - 40 Watts. Impedance = 4 ohms.
AVIC 6100NEX is my head unit...

Going to purchase:
Hertz HSK 165 6.5 2-way. Peak Power = 250 watts. RMS = 125 watts. Impedance = 4 ohms. These will go in the front doors. They fit.

Looking at JL 10s or 12s Will go with either one 12 or two 10s. Prefer one sub. Any recommendations here would be good. I may need to build my own stealth box for under rear seat. That's why I was considering the JL 12 that are build for tighter spaces.

What would you recommend for amps? I think 2 amps. One for mids/highs and one for sub(s). For my highs, I would like to run the Hertz, JBL, and JLs all off one amp. That is 6 speakers and 4 tweeters total. But two of the three are 4 ohm and 1 is 3 ohm. That a problem? If not, what amp would be good for this high/mid set up? I don't want to break the bank on the amps but want enough power to them to drive the speaker to their potential. And a recommended sub for the single JL 12?

Thanks...I'm new'ish to this. Just piecing this thing together.
