Smile Jeep Wrangler Factory Subwoofer Replacement

Hey Guys,
I Have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Edition, I have replaced the deck with a Sony DSX-S210X Digital Media Receiver, 2 Sony XS-R4644's in the Dash, and 2 Polk Audio DB521 5.25" Speakers in the Roll Bar. I heard that if you replace the factory subwoofer in the console the whole system will sound alot better. I picked out the Kicker 10CVT654 6.5" woofer. Now I know that I have to replace the amp and get wiring, but I don't know exactly what I need. Could you please tell me what kind of 2-channel amp and wires that I need to upgrade the console subwoofer. Thank You.

Installing an amp in a jeep is certainly a challenge..
In my 01 Wrangler...I replaced deck, all 4 speakers and the sub in the console...
I used a small amp inline that pumped all the speakers at 1 time. Considering the $$$ invloved and the space I had to work with-it worked best for me.

Good luck.

So you're just saying like a small, 2 channel amp? What kind of wiring kit will I need?

Sorry no luck finding the reciept...but as I said..it was an inline amp for all the speakers including the sub in our consoles.
Do you have a audio shop you can check with?
