    Looking for a budget 4 channel amp with built in full crossovers

    Building a budget system and the head unit will not be active, need a 4 channel amp that will have full crossovers for the mids and tweets. Something around 60-90w a channel @ 4ohm. would like to cross the mid around 120hz-3k, and the tweet from 3k+, Sub 120 and down. Sub amp I would need about 600-700w@ 1 ohm. Any suggestions? I searched and did not find much eventhough I know its here somewhere, Figured I would make a thread while I continue to search.



    Yes that is a 5 1/4th audiobahn mid speaker in my civic's headrest. circa 2006.

    I believe the AQ4x90 is active capable, as well as the sundown SAX-100.4D. The AQ would be much more of a "budget" option though. You could always get an external electronic crossover though. That way, you won't be limited to active capable amps. Also, why so high on the sub LPF? A good set of mids should be able to play 80hz-3k with great results.

    Your right, I used to cross my mids between 80-3- 3.5k. However when I listen to rap I cross it around 120 or so because I like to blast the music. usually its 80hz for everything else. I think getting a 3 way external crossover is going to be the best way to go. I guess I should be able to get one for about $50 or so. The point is if I bought the alpine radio for $60, no sense in spending a ton on an electronic crossover because then I could have just bought a head unit with active already built in.

    Completely understandable. In that case, the AQ is a solid choice. I really can't think of anything that's cheaper than the AQ that's active capable. DIYMA would probably be of more help.
