Re: Need a good & affordable amp for my in car speakers
You don't need to really fiberglass anything, if that's what you mean by custom installing - you could flush mount or surface mount your tweets to your sail panel or in the door, and it could have the potential to look and sound pretty good. The crossovers can be hidden almost anywhere - under the dash, in the door, in the kick panels, or wherever there's enough space to get them secure. It pretty much takes the same amount of effort to do that stuff as installing speakers and running wire does. The effort is definitely worth it IMO.

I wouldn't pull the trigger yet on the DSC450 - while it's good, you can go with one of it's bigger brothers, the DSC480 or the DSC4125. The DSC4125 is easily one of the most popular 4-channel amps on this forum at the moment. Sadly though, is has been discontinued so not only is the price going up, but dealers are selling the last of their inventory so you should act fast if you feel your future system could warrant such an amp. I have it myself and couldn't be happier.
However, don't count out the the DSC480 - if you wanted to go with a single component set up front, that amp can be bridged to provide 320w x 2 @ 4ohms, which is more than enough power for a single set of components (or 80 x 4). Even the DSC450 does 200x2 bridged at 4ohms, which is ample power for a set of comps, so it's basically up to you with what to go with. I'd personally go with the 480 or 4125 so if you ever wanted to run a single amp to power your front comps and a sub, or if you wanted to run some rear fill, you'd still have a good amount of power for everything. It basically means more flexibility in the future.
There are, of course, PLENTY of other 4-channel amps to choose from. MBQuart is great, but don't forget to take a look at Sundown, Crescendo, or Audioque - those are some of the most popular brands on the forums right now, and for good reason.
