I haven't heard either way about MB Quartz amps. About 15 years ago MB Quartz had respected component speakers, but through the years everyone else caught up. They could be just trying to diversify their products, since they lost some lead with speakers.
As for amp selection, unless your planning on being top-notch in the sound quality department, I'd recommend a class-D amplifier. Recent class-D amps are better than most and the most important aspect is their ease on your car's electrical system.
Tradionally class-D amps, had a particular digital sound and didn't have very good damping factors to control your subwoofers. This hasn't been the case with the Alpine PDX 1.1000 (150 damping) or the recent JL Audio HD (200 DF). 2007 Eclipse, Pioneer and Sony digital amps are more affordable, but the Eclipse had only a damping of 50 which is barely ok for subwoofers.
Try the newer Sony GTR6001 600 RMS @ 4 ohm amp for your sub. I believe the Sony XM-D9001 550 RMS is it's predessor. Lots of bang for your buck. Or you can also go with a single 4 channel amp like the Alpine PDX 4.150 or better yet, the JL HD 600 something. Use 2 channels for your fronts and bridge the rear for your sub. You'll get about 300 RMS bridged for both.
Hope it helps.
