I know this gets asked a lot, but I haven't seen this combo before...I have a 12" polk Momo MM124 500rms/1000peak in a .9 cubic ft. fiberglass box.  I was pushing it nicely with a rockford 451s, which just took a crap on me.  What amp would you suggest that will give me some bang for the buck with that setup?  I am more concerned with sound quality than hard hitting bass.

Take a look at the MTX 801D, nice punch for the buck.

Thanks for the advice.  I was checking out the MTX series.  Are the older model MTX Thunders better than the new MTX MXA models?    I'm not quite ready to drop the cash on a new Thunder series. 

Also, the Polk is a single voicecoil and I have been told that a 2 channel amp bridged will provide more efficient power to it than a mono amp...is this true?

I am not too sure how good the new Thunder amps are, I haven't heard one as of yet. I have been using MTX Thunder series amps for years now and have never been disapointed by them at all.

As far as a 2 channel amp powering the sub more efficiently, NO WAY. Class D mono amps are way more effieicnt than any 2 channel class ab amp is.
