    Noob needs helps with choosing an amp

    OK, so i need to upgrade my audio in my car, so ive decided to get a new HU, amp, and sub. I dont need any skull crushing bass or anything, but just a nice, clean sound with good bass.

    Here is my plan:
    i have just payed for This head unit and it will be in in the next week or so.
    I am going to duplicate This box And mount it under my floor mats for a complete stealth setup.
    I am going to buy This sub

    Now, i was originally going to buy This Amp , but its a little expensive. I can get it for 180$ new. I am pretty confident that this will be an excellent amp, but i want to try and save money.

    So i was wondering what a good amp would be for cheap for my setup. I dont know really anything about this kind of stuff, so i was hoping you guys could help me out.

    If you got the Single Voice coil 4ohm driver, that amp would pair pretty well with it. For the price that amp would be hard to beat. There are probably some better used amps for the $ on eBay, but that's up to you.

    Re: Noob needs helps with choosing an amp

    So if i was on a tight budget, would you reccomend just go ahead and save up for and spend it on the nine.2 amp, or is there a cheaper alternative that will sound as good? I dont mind buying from ebay, but i dont know what to look for in an amp so it makes finding one difficult.

    Also, would i be better off with a multichannel amp or a mono channel amp?

    Here is two more options for you to check out. They are a good quality product and cheaper with a good warranty.IMO

    Re: Noob needs helps with choosing an amp

    hmm so honestly, would i actually notice a defference between either of those and a nine.2 amp? Im no audiophile, but i enjoy music, so it needs to sound pretty good.
    If i can buy that amp for 100$, then that would save me alot of money, and if it will give me the same performance, then i might go with that.

    I'm assuming that's direct from cadence, those are really good deals.
