    What's a small, good value amp for front speakers that is available at local stores?

    Hey guys check this out

    I need an amp for tweeters and some 4" mids....but yeah, I wanna buy it locally to save time...so don't say brands like ARC or Audison

    Um...so I need something with real little power...like 4 x 50w even...and you guys know I have an MR-Spyder so it has to be real tiny cuz I have no space

    And uh...let's try to keep it under...say...$200? That sounds about right doesn't it?

    Okay, let me know what you guys think

    BTW, I know for sure I can get Kicker, Earthquake, or Profile around here for that price so those are possibilities...let me know

    Yeah, but they're pretty big and I'd need two of them...

    And I wouldn't be able to find them locally...

    Well, there are only brands in stores that either don't have a very big reputation or have one for being bad i.e. Profile, Bazooka, Kicker, Earthquake

    And when I'm in the store and ask for an opinion, it's tough to trust someone I'm gonna buy something from...

    well, personally...when i was in a hurry i tried www.thezeb.com they ship pretty **** quick and have good prices. I mean, if u can wait till like...thursday or at most friday it's worth it to get a better amp for less of a price...imo. But if ur really in a hurry, like today...or something, then profile would okay, though i personally have not had great experiences w/ them...they'll give you power. peace

    I've had nothing but good experiences with Profile. I'd put them up there with US Acoustics for best budget amp.
