    Suggestions for matching Amps

    I have been out of town for a couple of months and have been looking forward to getting the speakers I ordered before I left into my car.

    The speakers are:
    CTX65CS - Image Dynamics 6.5" Component Speaker System
    CTX69 - Image Dynamics 6 x 9" 2 Way Speaker w/ Silk Tweeters
    I also have two 4ohm 12inch Alpine Type R Subs in a sealed box at 1 ohm which I need to buy an amp for because my car was broken into.

    I am looking for 2 amps which, for purely aesthetic reasons, I would like to be made by the same company and somewhat match.

    Thanks guys for all the help.

    I have two Hifonics Zeus zxi4006 200x2
    honestly I would use them but from what people have told me about them I am not sure if the amps will make ID speakers sound like garbage or even damage them.


    So my question is:

    what matching 4 channel amplifier and mono 1ohm stable amplifier would you guys suggest to run the IDs and Alpine Type Rs listed above.
    I would like to have all the sufficiently powered for under $450 the cheaper the better thanks in advance for your advice.

    Re: Suggestions for matching Amps

    Before I left I was looking at a pair of MB Quart Amps but seems that the MB QUART DSC4125 is sold out anyplace it was reasonably priced.
    I also noticed that people were recommending the Crescendo Audio 1000C4 4 Channel Amplifier but the gold finish just doesn't do it for me.

    Find some old school Reference or Rubicon Soundstreams. They look mint, and can be had for decent price, and they sound very very nice.

    Re: Suggestions for matching Amps

    I would rather buy new amps online than used. I was looking at the new soundstreams and noticed they had new Rubicon and Reference amps but am not sure if they are like a majority of the amp companies where the new amps are unreliable and underrated.

    Get a Kronos for the subs and a Leviathan for the ID's. They'll only set you back about $950 or so...

    Re: Suggestions for matching Amps

    The Audioque amps seem like a great pair of amps they are a bit more than I wanted to spend so other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Are the Audioque amps power hungry at the moment I am running off of a 110 amp, an Optima Red Top battery, have done the Big 3, and am running 2 4gauge Power wires from battery underhood.
    Also is there anyplace to order the AQ amps cheaper than from their company website?

    Only if you want to buy used ones from people on car audio forums.
