I need an amp with a small footprint to power a JL 10W6V2. It is going in a 2004 Toyota Tacoma Ext Cab, sO space is at a premium. I have been powering it with a HiFonics Zeus Series VII, but I sold it b/c it is too big.  Any Suggestions? I have been out of the loop in buying new car audio for a while, so whats good these days??

if you've got the money look into a 'rack' amplifier... cant think of any names or models off hands but I know the rack amps are built for small spaces.

Micro Dimensions, Sometimes refered to as U Dimensions makes a great mono block amp thats rack mount with mall foot print. I believe they are the same company as Focal. I have the smaller two channel thats rated at 70 x 2 and have seen it power 3 10wO's in a sealed box and it powered them very well. The guy I got this amp from was using it as a sub amp for his 10" L7 and it worked awsome for him. I have been using it to power my components and it sounds great. Mabye look into them.

what about the alpine MRD-M500 or MRD-M501. I hear these are pretty stout. They are fairly small too. THose rack amps are expensive. THe ones I could find anyway.

I second ( or third) the motion on Xtant. Very skinny and small framed for the power available from them. Also, I remember the old Memphis amps being small for their output, but haven't seen any of the new ones though.

The USacoustics amp model USX600D would power that sub nicely, at a clean 375 watts at 2 ohms.  It is 9.75 in. long X 9.5 wide X 2.4 in. high.  Sips power, and has impressive THD specs for a mono amp.  About $200.
Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.
