What does that mean in terms of how it will sound

rms is real power...peak is bull power!...Rms is the spec you want to look at! SQ is not a big issue with modern day amps...they all sound similar, though flea market, cheapo amps could have noise issues, and use very poor quality components. Try and get a brand name amp around 200-400 rms watts and you'll be fine.

The Pioneer & Alpine's will put out a lot more power which should push the driver a lot better resulting in a more powerful bass.

flateric PM me I can help you out. I am changing almost my whole system next week and could give you a real good deal on a Kenwood HU, 2x10" Kenwood subs with custom built sealed box, Rockford fosgate amp 382wrms, and most of the wiring as well.
Pics are here...

and for sale thread is here...

Ignore the part where it says it is no longer for sale I need some extra cash right now. I can do $325. for everything except the fused distro and one of the unfused ones are already spoken for. Let me know if you are interested, it is all hooked up right now to listen to. Slaughter, BigRedGuy, and Father Yuli have all heard this setup and can verify it sounds really good. The bass will actually rattle my Front licence plate.

I believe that amp is 300wrms @ 4ohm. But should do the trick.

I would definitely consider what 420Guy has to offer as it is a very nice system and a great price! I've heard it myself and was quite impressed. Great guy as well!
