Small amp for center channel speaker

I'm looking for some type of small amplifier to power an Alpine SBS-05DC in-dash center channel speaker. It doesn't need to produce much power (40 - 60 watts), but I need it to be smaller than the average amp, as I would like to mount it under the dash near the speaker. Many of the center channel speakers come with their own little amp, but I liked the Alpine speaker, so am now trying to find a little amp to go with it. The only thing I have been able to find is a poor quality Mitzu amp on eBay. Has anyone seen anything that would work?

Check out the small Orion Cobalt 2 channel at your local Audio Warehouse.

I couldn't find the Alpine amp anywhere, and it would be a bit big (10" x 10"), anyways. However, I found the Orion Cobalt, and it looks like it will do the trick. Thanks for your help, guys.
