The KM 10 still requires a cabinet according to Kicker which means you shouldn't install it in the bench seat. The amp does match up with it. It won't be very loud (compared to what I use in my concerts) but if you are just listening to regular run of the mill rock music, you should be ok.

Now your main speakers should be ok because you have plenty of amp power. There are better speaker choices though.

They mean a speaker cabinet, not the rear bench seat. A vent is a hole in a speaker cabinet. This hole (vent) or a tube (port) is there to alter how the subwoofer sounds. Although I don't like them because of their sound (I preferred sealed), it will make the subwoofer a little louder. Try looking at the Rockford Fosgate Marine 10" subs or JL Audio makes these as well. These speakers were designed to be put in a bench seat for example, they don't need a speaker cabinet to operate properly.

Hell, I'd get 2 of those and put them in the bench seat.
In fact that amp will power one speaker just fine, but it also matches up with 2 of them just perfectly! You don't even need to buy another amp, just add a speaker and I will show you how to wire it up!!! Buy more boom boom!!!! You know you want to!!!!

I would agree with this especially if you are
dealing with pro level systems with processing.
Couple of Nexo Ps8s and a single Nexo sub with
the processor (or equivalent system) would
not only sound clear but would sound clear way past
any level a car audio grade system could achieve
and still sound good..
SPL isnt everything.
Problem is where do you put them suckers?
