3. Rockford Fosgate R500-1

My current setup:

2. Alpine SPS-170A (rear)
3. Sound Barrier(desi) AMP.
4. JBL GT5 1204 BR

Kindly help.

Your ID pumps about 600W RMS right?.
In that case all three amps will be under powering it (considering your connecting them as 4 ohm load)
RF amps are class apart but, thats only applicable to their Punch and Power Series.
Kenwood Amp u've mentioned comes the closest in terms of rated power(500 RMS) but most Kenny's are overrated

All 3 are good amps the Kenny is known for it's VFM. I would take the JBL for the only reason that access to after sales service (should anythinggo wrong) is easier than RF and maybe even the Kenny.

Well dont you think you should first get a set of Comps? I mean you are buying a beautiful Sub, but to compliment that, you would need to have good set of comps.
Out of the list of amps you have mentioned, i think JBL would be good as they are really powerful amps.

Before you put the sub in I think you seriously need to give a thought to getting good front speakers and a better amplifier. I am pretty sure you wont be very happy with your sub and mono upgrade. You will only get good quality of sound below 160hz(not a good idea to get the sub to play anything more than this) and the remaining frequencies from 160-20,000hz wil be totally lacking.

Nice choice there good to see one more ID lover, The best of the lot (what i think is the kenny) i think it is rated @ 500 x1 @4ohms and 900 x 1 @ 2 ohms so the idq will be pretty much happy if you feed it with that kind of power. If people say kenny are overrated it should do approx 6/700 @ 2 ohms. My vote goes to to kenny.

Good choice of components, As you are going with the cxs62 which amp you gone use to rum them ?

Kenny is overrated and will give out a true 650rms at 2ohms. Out of the choice mentioned I would say you can go for RF>Jbl>Kenny.
Another suggestion would be Alpine MRP-m500 if you could source it.

A D4 would mean 2 ohms.
I would advice you to go for Harman Kardon CA1500M.

600watts at 2 ohms and an amazing amp.
It will surely do wonders to your setup.
P.S. , you definitely need to upgrade the sound barrier ( it actually is acting as a barrier) plus get a good pair of front compos.
