From my understanding with the Pioneer subs its 1000w max power so that would make the sub have 500w RMS. It really depends on how much money you want to spend but you can't go wrong with a JL Audio 500/1. It also depends on how much bass you want becuase the way you wire the sub could drop a 4ohm load to a 2ohm load. Otherwise for price and still have good quality quality I would recommend the Alpine MRP-M650 mono amp. Even Rockford Fosgates 500/1 would do the trick and that will still give great quality. I'd stay away from the Sony **** becuase sony is only good at making tvs and home stuff but for the car go with something a little more high quality. Trust me it makes one hell of a difference.
