    Need Help With Amplifier Choice

    Hey guys! What's going on?

    Well, I am in the market for a 4-channel amp. It is going to be used to power my 4 65 rms Infinity Reference 6.5 coaxials. Maybe in the future, it will be used to power some comps, but for now, just the infinities.

    I am looking to spend no more than $100 including shipping. I made a post in the WTB forum, but nothing too great has come up.

    I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for what I should be looking for or know of any good deals.

    I was looking at this AMP on EBAY, but I do not know how the reputation of PROFILE is, nor do I know if I could get better for $85 shipped.

    Hoping to hear some help soon.

    Thanks again.

    Re: Need Help With Amplifier Choice

    dude, if you are going to get that spend 5 dollars more and get the profile from etronics....the ap1040. cause isnt the actual ap or ca(whatever it is called) line supposed to be better than the baja? shipped to my door it was like 106 or 107.



    HU: Alpine 9830
    Front Comps: PG Xenon x6.5
    Front Comp Amp: Kenwood Kac 7252
    Sub: PG Xenon 12D2
    Sub Amp: PG Xenon x600.1

    us acoustics 4065. it goes for $130 brand new from an authorized dealer so you should find it on ebay for less. excellent amps imo. they are also rated at 12.9 volts. i loved mine. never failed me once.

    Re: Need Help With Amplifier Choice

    I would rather spend more money in an amp for my speakers since thats what is all about, low THD, although you can hear 1% THD so you will be fine up to 1%. Try and get the lowest one you got. I know USAmps has their THD ratings of their 2 and 4 channel amps rated at 0.025%

    No doubt it is, specially at a low price.
