    What is the best amp under 100$

    I just recently got a Dodge Stealth and need some kick to the sound system, i don't have much money so what is your recommendation for the amp for under 100$. Also want to know if you have any tips for wiring over the stock amp.
    Also what are some nice subs to fit in my 10" trunk (yeah its non existent)
    thank you for helping.

    Definitely can't do better than above for a system that cheap. Keep in mind though that you will still need an amp kit

    Audio Technix BLOWOUT SALE!! - I'd go for a D2 Strato sub and a 4ga amp kit from there

    For an amp, you could get the AudioTechnix 400.1 from the above link, or get something used. You could then buy a custom enclosure from a builder on the forum. The only prefab box I would buy would be a sealed one.

    RMS. Peak is COMPLETELY useless and used for marketing purposes.

    Re: What is the best amp under 100$

    I have a jensen power1050 mono amp i csn ship you for $50. Can include the wireing for it too. if u are useing your stock deck, i have a MX-4 that i can include for an extra $20. You just splice it into the speaker wire and it allows you to run your amp off it. Check my fs threads. $70 shipped for both and amp wireing

Whatever you do, just don't get any of the fore mentioned gear.. I'm not trying to push that deal offered earlier but in honesty for the budget it's the best you'll get more than likely. $100 + approx $35 shipping. Amp kit for $35 so you're at $170 and a custom box for a 10" is around $100 shipped so you cruise in at $270. Can't do much better then that for the budget. Please ask us before you buy anything though, we'll gladly help guide you in the right direction

    Re: What is the best amp under 100$

    amazon and ebay have the same things on ebay but cheaper and theres no tax and sometimes no shipping charges either. Lowest Prices on Sports & Outdoor | Home & Garden | Electronics is another cheapo place. Seriously though, dont ever look at trash brands that'll explode the next day. Boss, performance teknique, pyramid, etc.. I'm sure there's a car audio trash post on this website if you search for it. Most of all, after you get everything set up. DONT FRIGGEN MAX OUT THE GAIN OR BASS BOOST. Your post about wanting to buy boss is a big foreshadowing of you blowing up your audio equipment in the future.
