The Plan

I have a question. So I just bought a jeep and am looking to install a system. I have an idea of what I want to do, but was hoping yall would look it over and tell me if I missed something stupid.
So far Iíve purchase a deck(clarion cz500-rv) and two sets of speakers; Alpine SPS-610c for the rear, and Alpine SPS-406 for the front. Iíve also purchased all necessary mounting brackets and the wiring harness.
Iím looking into installing an amp and a sub. Iím hoping to be able to power both the speakers and the sub off the amp, so I was thinking a four channel? From what Iíve read you can run front speakers on channel 1, rear speakers on channel 2 and bridge 3 and 4 for the sub. Does that sound about right? The speakers Iím looking at have 80 watts per in the rear and 45 per in the front. Both amps Iím looking at have 75 watts per channel at two ohms. If the speakers are 4 ohms each, and I wire them in parallel, that would give me two ohms correct for the circuit? Would that be enough for the speakers? As far as the sub goes, I donít want to build a box, so I found a sealed kit, Prime R1L-1X12 Single R1. Itís RMS is 150 watts which I believe is at 4 ohms. Would this be about right for a setup, or am I completely off base.

I know the deck isnít the greates, but I got a good deal on it, and can always upgrade

The amps Iím considering are:

Rockford Fosgate Prime R300-4

Alpine MRP-F300

Any help would be appreciated!!!

But decided against it, But take a look at this site for equipment

Thanks for the input! A few people have actually recommended I go with a 5 channel. This seems like it might be a good choice, 4 channels to make sure my speakers have enough choice and a dedicated sub channel. Lots to consider.
