need amp suggestions

My current audio setup is an Alpine MRP-500 amp powering an Alpine SWR-1242D sub.

Now I have some Alpine SPR-17S component speakers. They are rated at 110 RMS. My head unit is 20. I need to amp the speakers and am having trouble finding a good choice for a 2 channel amp.

The closest thing I've come to is this: Rockford Fosgate Punch P400-2 (100 watts RMS X 2)

Is there anything else that is not complete crap and not ridiculously expensive? There seems to be a lot more choice in 4 channel amps at near the same price as any 2 channel. I could always just add some rear fill (SPR-69C) and amp those with a 4 channel. But it would be more of a hassle. I'd rather just stick with 2 channel.

Another option would be to look into an 4ch. amp that's bridgeable to 2x100W

Well I guess having that much power isn't too bad but I was looking for something just a bit cheaper than a PDX. I'll start looking at bridgeable amps.
