Help finding an amp to fit my needs

Okay, so my current amp isn't cutting it for my setup.

I'm running 2X 6.5" Focal Polyglass Components (2X 70 watts nominal)
1X Exile Xtec 10" Subwoofer (300 watts nominal)

I'm looking for an amplifier (single) that will power this system nicely.

Any suggestions? Thank you.
I'm hoping that it won't kill my bank balance.

The best i have been able to come up with is a Boston Acoustics GT-42 (and it kinda hurts the bank balance).

If the sub was dual 2 ohm coils you could use a bridged 4 channel for the whole shabang, but otherwise your looking at a 5 channel or a monoblock and 2 channel.

Couldn't i bridge 2 channels for the sub and use the other 2 channels for the speakers off of a 4 channel amplifier?

My suggestion would be the JBL GTO755.6 II

Plenty of power
160 watts x 2 + 300 watts x 1 at 4 ohms
Ebay has some good deals!

what does the sub have for voice coil(s)? Is it single 4ohm, dual 2ohm, or dual 4ohm?

JBL gto 75.4, offers 75x2, and 284x1 with channels 3/4 bridged. Should be about 100.00 cheaper than the Boston.
