i need your opinion

i bought 1-12" kicker cvr12 putting out 800 max and 400 rms watts. I also bought 2-10" kicker cvr10 putting out 600 max and 300 rms watts. So my question is what amp, brand and wattage would you recommend in order to push the 12" and another to push the 10" cause those are going in my brother's truck.

Speakers don't "put out" wattage. Amplifiers put out wattage. Speakers handle a certain amount of wattage. RMS power handling is what is important. Max is BS. You want to match the RMS output power of the amp to the RMS power handling of the woofer. I need to know more info about the woofers to help you. Is each woofer single voice coil (one pair of speaker wire connections on the speaker) or dual voice coil (two pairs of speaker wire connections on the woofer)? What is the ohm load of each speaker -OR- if a woofer is dual voice coil, what is the ohm load of each coil?
