    Best 4 Channel Amp

    Hey, I'm looking for an amp to power my Memphis ST60's and my rear speakers (they're stock, for now). I want a good 4 channel amp. So far, I'm thinking about the Blaupunkt 4100, but I want you guys to give me some other options that wouldn't cost too much (but still a quality amp). When I say not too much, I mean not over around $375. Thanks a lot.

    Thanks a lot. What about the JBL 80.4? Not enough power? Or do you think it'd work out fine?

    With $375 you can get a lot of high quality amps. Pheonix Gold, JL, ALpine for some more expensive ones, and JBL, Coustic for some cheaper ones. Personally i would go with the JBL for the price to power it puts out but thats jsut me.

    I have to throw in my Hifonics - nexus880
    I love this amp.
    Had one of the online shops send me this amp because they ran out of Orion amps and I just love it.
    Puts out 100W x 4 @ 4ohms and the SQ is suburb. Think it runs around $399.

    Stay away from Blaupunkt.....Basically along the lines of a Pyramid or other similar crap like that. I run Cadence and have been very happy with how cool the amp runs and how much clean power it produces. Zapco's mentioned are excellent choices as well. Cant go wrong with JL either.
