Some Help Please (Kicker Amp)

Will the Kicker ZX700.5 amp be large enough to power (two) Kicker compVR 10's and (four) Kicker KS68 6x8. I am looking for one amp to power all of the speakers.

It will power the components ok, but it will barely push the subs

Do i really need a amp for the 4- 8x6's? I have a Pioneer AVIC Z2 thats going to run it.

What size amp would i need to run the two subs alone? Should it be a mono or stereo amp? Here is the link to the amps I am looking at. They are under the specifications link

The local audio shop told me I didn't need a amp if I ran 4 Kicker KS680's (6x8). Now that I told them I picked up 4 Kicker KS68's (older version) of the internet (because the local dealers sale price was crazy high), they said I would need a amp and suggested I get the Kicker 5 channel amp.

you won't NEED an amp for the components but they will crave more power...

typically a mono block amplifier is best for running subs, before I can actually give you my opinion on what I would get to power them I would need to know the model number/name of the subs and what exactly are you after with your system.

The amp is ordered. Do you think I should run 6.5's on the front door instead of 6x8's? A friend suggested it but Im not to sure how that will work?
