Bigger amp

First off, I tried searching, but I'm either unable to find what I'm looking for, or I don't know what I'm looking for.

I have a 2007 SRT8 Charger with options I, II, and III. H/U is the NAV with 6 disk changer. Has tweets in the dash, mids in the front doors, assuming 6x9's on the rear deck, and a factory square kicker sub. The sound is good, but I would like a little more power for a touch better volume.
The only thing I'd like to replace is the amp (or amps) if it has more than one. And perhaps even upgrade the sub but still use the stock enclosure as I need my trunk space.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

One more question......
I went and checked the car, and the sub has it's own amp mounted to the underside of the rear deck. Is there an upgrade for this as well?

of course there is Check out the link I gave you for other options.

For anybody else reading this, that amp I linked REQUIRES a powered sub, not the passive sub in the RT's

The power rating is the same as the original amp but the DSS mode makes a nice difference. Also, the EQ setup of this amp creates a little more LOW bass. I had one in my SRT8 for about a month before I traded the car. Since the Kicker spkrs are 4 ohms, the amp output is 28W/ch into 6 channels. The Charger has no center dash spkr like the 300s (1 ch) and the Kicker sub has its own amp (1 ch).

SRT has a powered sub, the Daytona with the 322a does not. I installed the kicker 368w amp in my prior Daytona and couldn't figure out why there was no bass. I actually got to talk to a real live Kicker Engineer, who told me that the amp required a powered sub.
