    AMP suggestion for 3 way ACTIVE front stage.

    i will be working over the winter on installing some audio components into my car (1992 civic 4 door)

    i am planning on running an active front stage. 6.5" (doors) 4" (kicks) Tweeters (a pillars)
    currently running Pioneer Premiere DEH-860MP headunit. not sure if i will use an external active crossover or use the crossover functions in the Pioneer unit for Highs, Midrange(bandpass) and Midbass.

    i've been looking around at used amps and was hoping to get some suggestions on some 4 channel amps in the 75w-100w RMS per channel @ 4 ohms. preferably with an average price of $300 or less. i already have a 2 channel amp for the Midbass.

    In the past i have experience using Phoenix Gold m series & Outlaw amps, PPI Art Series & Powerclass, early 90's Linear Power, Old Orion HCCA , mid 90's MTX Thunder ,and some old Punch amps.

    Hoping to get some feedback though as it's been awhile since i've heard any of them.



    Some old amps i've seen for sale lately.


    Rockford Fosgate Punch 800a.4 100wx4
    Phoenix Gold M44
    PPI art series A404
    Phoenix Gold Sapphire

    pg m44 Im a proud owner of one of these beauties, great amps. Outlaws are the same thing, with a different cover, but more power.

    oh.

    i currently have an Infinity Perfect 12. though i might change out with something else.
    but in the past i've used Orion XTR, Image Dynamics ID's, JL W0's & W6's,
    at the moment the Infinity is running of an old Kicker Impulse IX302 amp.

    i also currently have Infinity 8" uniplane 80F speakers in my rear deck.

    i'm trying to build a fairly budget SQ based system, with old school amplification.
