Default Are these subs good\worth the price? (recommend an amp?)

Ok guys, first off I'll say that I know next to nothing about car audio, just to disperse any possible flamers out there.

Anyway, I recently decided that my car could use a bit more base and went to my local pawn shop today to see if he had anything. Here are some pics of the cheapest sub he had:

It's the one on top. That one is $65. Worth it? Or too much? The one on the top, as you can see in the closeup of each speaker, say E-10 series. Now the sub below this one says R-10 series, but that one's $120. If that's not a good deal for the first one, recommend me something I can get for not too much.

Now, if that is a good enough deal, then I need an amp. I only want one big enough to drive that sub, and I'd rather not spend too much.

I think this is the sub - http://www.crutchfield.com/S-TUDtCww...-SWE-1043.html, if so then $65 is a very good deal! (if its in good condition)

As for an amp, look through the list of amps at cruchfield and find one that offers 100-250 watts RMS or more on a bridged connection

Ok, that sounds great then. BTW there is an individual connection for each sub. Would this amp work: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_098CO50...01.html?tp=115

It's a 250watt for $120.

I'm surprised that's such a good deal on that sub, normally these pawn shops get all they can for something. From the outside it looks like it's in good shape, should I ask to see the inside too?

Scratch that amp above, here's 200watt for $70: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882647002

How's that to drive those two tens?

The amp above only offers 60w 2 @ 4 Ohm or 80w 2 @ 2 Ohm.

What do you mean by two tens? you are going to get two of them 10" subs?
this sould do the trick, I wouldnt go too cheap on the amp, its pointless spending money on a sub then getting a cheap amp.

No dude, you see in the pics above the box has two tens in it. That amp'll be fine? Ok, would I need a special battery, or a different alternator to run that amp?
