What amp for JL Audio 10W3V2 dual 4 ohm sub?

What amp (& watts) should I buy to run this JL Audio 10W3V2 dual 4ohm sub I just got off ebay?

I was looking at these 2 amps on sale...are they under powered for this sub?

How about this one? http://www.crutchfield.com/S-NAn9sJf...0&I=500MRDM501

Also what box should I build or is it easier to just buy a Q-Logic box already made?
Like maybe this one http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Q-Log...oductDetail.do

Where can I buy 3/4" MDF board to build a box? (or will 5/8" MDF work?)

I'm running Boston RX87 in front and Polk Momo MMC570 in back off the internal amp of my Alpine CDA 9833 (26 watts RMS/Channel).
Sounds ALOT better than the stock setup but needs more bottom end bass.

Sorry for all the questions but I'm running out of $ pretty quick on this project & want some good sounds

TIA

Sub will handle 250w rms. So Choose an amp rated for 200-250 into 2 ohm mono.

Amp under seat might fit if is small (probably not), if not put it on the back of the rear seat or on the back of the box.

Best boxes are custom built for the woofer and to fit your car, but you decide where to spend your $$$.
