    BEST amp for these speakers??

    in my 96 Yukon... I have 2 Focal 6.5" Components in the front(60 rms watts each, 120 max) and 2 Focal coaxials in the back(also 60 watts rms each, 120 max)...

    Any suggestions, I need the BEST amps as far as quality sound, volume, reliability and longevity. price is NOT an issue, no limit.

    theres so many - but like last time - you said you were afraid of overpowering them - llike most speakers im sure they can easily handle more power but i neevr used them personally so im not sure how much - do some research and find out whats a safe limit for them cause im sure they can take more than 60... and will prolly sound better too - and as i also said to you last time - you can find stuff just as good but cheaper... you pay more for the brand name than anything else...

    and you said you're looking for volume and sound quality - volume is based on how much power you put into the speakers... (along with their response) and as far as sound quality - as long as its an a/b amp - most of them will sound almost exactly the same (with some exceptions)

    i've been looking at some rockford fosgate, alpine, zapco (couple people recommended them), i've never heard of anybody using focal amps... so what are the major differences between if I were to spend $200 on a rockford fosgate or $400+ for a zapco(well zapco has one for 220 and 1 for 420 actually)

    well the reason you dont hear alot of plp using focal amps is cause they're not cheap and its only 75 watts about...

    the difference isnt probaly anything you're going to notice
    if anything buy an amp thats rated slightly higher then what you want cause some amps are overrated... you can always lower them and this way you know it will cleanly push the power you're lookin for

    and plz dont pair those with a rockford - or anything else they sell at bestbuy (cept alpine)
    i actually had a rockford once and even tho it might not be common - mine overheated all the time and eventually died on me
