Which amp for a pair of alpine type-r 10's

Hey Folks,

Recenlty upgraded the HU and now that it's almost paid off, I'm looking at doing phase 2: subs/amp. Phase 3 will be the rest of the speakers and amp.

Way back in the day, I had a pair of 12" type r's (back when they were 300RMS each) in a ported box off 800RMS, then upgraded to a 12" RE XXX 1200 and eventually 1500RMS both in ported boxes. I think the type-r's were my favorite, so I'm looking to go back to them, though i'm moderately debating 10's vs 12's. I'm thinking of a sealed box this time, as my favorite stereo was my bro's sealed 10's back in his dodge truck (small cab). This time around, these will be going in the trunk of a 300C.

Anywho, the new type r's are 600RMS a piece, though I remember alpine's always being a little power hungry. I was originally looking at an Alpine MRP-M200 but after visiting a shop recently the salesman was really pushing alpine's PDX-M12. Now that i'm debating, I'm also seeing that the MRP-M200 pulls 180amp's as oppose to the PDX-M12 only pulling 100. My electrical system would likely appreciate that. I can get each amp for about the same price.

The rest of the system is stock except for a Pionerr AVIC-Z120BT; 2 6x9's in the rear deck and 2 in the front doors. 3 3.5" speakers in the dash.
