Will my amp be able to handle this?

I'm a noob when it come to car audio, so I need some recomendations. For christmas my parents got me a sound system for my 92' 4runner. They got me a Pioneer Premier DEH-P590IB deck, 2 4" Alpine sps-10c2, 2 5 1/4" Alpine sps- 13c2, 2 10" Kicker comp subs in a box, and a Rockford P325.1 punch amp. Now for the questions. Will the amp even be capable of handling all of this power? From looking through the forums I noticed that most people have seperate amps for speakers and subs. Also, If this system does work, will I need to get a capacitor or a stronger battery? Lastly, Is this system going to sound any good? I'll be listening to mostly rap and techno. With tax and installation, it will come out to 1K canadian, so I'm not sure if it's worth the money or if I could find something better.

I'd add a small 4 channel for the speakers. I think that amp will only run the sub (.1)

you wont need to upgrade wiring or add a cap, or battery.

it should sound fine, not loud by any means but can sound good.

I picked up the P325.1 as well. It's a mono amp for sub(s) So either run your speakers off your deck for now until you can get a 4 channel such as the RF P400.4. I'll also be running (2) 10" in a ported Bassworx box. I'm still in the design faze, getting everything mounted nice and clean in the trunk...

You shouldn't be disappointed with that setup, even if you run the speakers just off the deck for now (which is what I'm doing) until you can get a 4 channel amp...

How many watts RMS are the subs? Single or dual voice coil? This is what is going to matter the most at this stage... SVC you can wire both subs @ 2ohms for the most power from that amp. If they are DVC you are going to have probs because you can't wire 2 of those @ 2ohms. Unless they are DVC 2ohm subs then you can..

BTW, the amp has 2 channels or 4 speaker terminals but these are wired parallel interally. It's really only a 1 channel amp...
