Lightbulb Best Combo?

Hey I was wondering if anyone could answer a few questions I had. I am getting two Rockford Fosgate 12's (P112S4) and most likely putting these into a dual ported box.

My question now is about powering these subs...I have 3 options as of now:
(1) My current amp - Alpine FLEX4 Amp MRP-F256 (I think this may be too weak for the job?)

(2) I can get a Kenwood KAC 7201 for $100. http://reviews.cnet.com/Kenwood_KAC_7201_amplifier/4507-6726_7-30471761.html?tag=nav

(3)Or I can get a Sony Xplod XM-504Z for $80
(http://uk.shopping.com/xPO-Sony_XM_504Z)

(4) Anything else someone recommends (but I have a fairly small budget around 100 for the amp )

Thanks for any help!

With the amount of fundage and the deal you can get I would definately buy the kenwood its not gonna kill those subs but it will sound very good and kenwood has been around for 30 yearss or something like that . It would be your best investment In my opinion. Dan..

what about a SONY 600W XPLOD XM-2100GTX
(http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/amplifiers/XM-2100GTX) for about $60? Good buy or not?

Also if someone could answer whether amp (1) will provide any good power at all to the subs?

thanks.
