Default Recommend a good amp for these components please!

Hey guys. I have a 2004.5 2500HD Chevy Duramax. Its a extended cab. I've been slowly wanting to upgrade my audio. I have just recently installed a Pioneer AVH-4400BH headunit. My next purchase is going to be a set of Polk MM6501 Components. Curious as to what would be a good brand/size amp to run on these speakers. These will be installed in the factory location (doors) Also..... where would be a decent place to put the amp?

I will more than likely be doing all the install myself as I have a pretty good knowledge on the install side of it. I've just never been too good at sizing the correct stuff.

Here is the info on these speakers. This might help you all suggest a good amp.

•component speaker system includes two 6-3/4" woofers, 2 tweeters, and two external crossovers
•woven honeycomb glass fiber composite woofer cone with butyl rubber surround
•1" silk composite dome tweeter with swivel mount
•2-way external crossover with 2-position tweeter level
•certified for marine use
•2.7-ohm impedance for extra power (compatible with virtually all factory or aftermarket car stereos)
•power range: 25-125 watts RMS (250 watts peak power)
•frequency response: 40-25,000 Hz
•sensitivity: 94 dB
•includes adapter rings for 6-1/2" openings
•top-mount depth: 2-9/16"

I've had a couple people off caraudioforum.com recommend the ARC Audio FD2200 Amp. I have never personally heard of them before, but I guess Chip Foose has something to do with them. The specs on it are:

Output power:
100 Watts x2 @4 ohms,
185 Watts x2 @2 ohms,
360 Watts x1 @4 ohms bridged
Transient distortion: < 0.1% @ 4ohms
Frequency response: 20Hz - 20Khz
S/N ratio (A wtg): >98dB
Bass boost: + 18dB@45Hz
Input sensitivity: 250mV - 2.5V
Crossover: 55Hz - 5.5KHz variable 12 dB
Fuse: 45A x1
Dimensions (with endcaps): 10 3/8" x 16 3/4" X 2 3/8"
Dimensions(without endcaps): 10 3/8" x 13.5" X 2 3/8"

I am open to any suggestions there is though!
