    best SQ amps for sub and components using the 9887 headunit cdt components, AA ava 15

    I have the alpine 9887 and I want to get a killer sq amp to go with it. I have the ascendant audio avalanche 15" and I want to power it with around 600 to 1000rms sealed. I do not want to spend more then 250 maybe 300 on a subwoofer amp. The speakers are cdt audo cl61a-25 pro and I want a nice 4 channel sq amp for these speakers as well and give them around 75 to 100rms they can take 125. I'de want to spend no more then 150 maybe 200 on this amp. sq is more important then rms ouput. Like ide rather have a 600rms sub amp then a 1200 if it has alot better sq and same goes for the speakers. I will also be doing 3 way active so i need a 4 channel amp for the mids and highs.

    The amplifiers I had in mind were the Audioque 1200D and the diamond audio d3 4 channel.

    Ive heard mixed feedback some people tell me this is fine others suggest this amp for both

    You say you want SQ and you post a sale link to an RF amp, RF is ok (sort of) but they ARE NOT an SQ oriented amp. Keep in mind that sound is subjective so what sounds good to you, might not to me and vise versa.

    May I recommend...
    Audison SRX 2S - eBay (item 110607050494 end time Nov-08-10 11:43:01 PST) or
    AUDISON SRX4 NEW Amplifier 680Watt max 4Channel SQ Amp - eBay (item 110576199455 end time Nov-18-10 17:10:41 PST)

    ^ That's what you want for an SQ amp. Just my .02 worth.

    I have an old school Eclipse EA3532 4/5 channel. It would work very well for your 4 channel amp.

    Look at Diamond Audio, old school Eclipse, old school MTX, old school Phoenix Gold, old school Pioneer GM's, old school Sony XM and Mobile ES lines, etc.

    BTW for 3 way active you will need a 6 channel amp. 2 way active you need a 4 channel.

    Re: best SQ amps for sub and components using the 9887 headunit cdt components, AA av

    I know what your saying and I will consider those. do you know of anything cheaper maybe those look good. And the link someone told me it would be better then my choice but I have to disagree it was only there for reference. Ide rather have a mono channel amp but i guess it doesnt really make a difference.

    oh wow a bunch of other people posted stuff so im editing this.

    So I have this active thing confused, i want to be able to adjust my sub, mids, and tweets crossovers and slopes, so isnt that 3 way? Why would I need a 6 channel because I will have a mono channel amp for the sub and a 4 channel for the mids and highs and obviously all channels will be used.

    What ohm load do you need the the power at for the sub? If 4ohms I suggest finding an old school 2 channel to bridge to it. A MTX Thunder 2300 will work well, or a RF 800a2.

    1 ohm for the sub or 4 ohms its rated at 800w at 1 ohms but can take 1000rms @ 1 ohm so ive heard. the speakers are 4 ohm.

    Do be afraid of the Rockford amp. Its going to sound great and fits your budget.

    Yes, they are very big. Even the T3002 that I have sitting in my closet is huge and its only 50 watts x 2.

    If you really want to concentrate on SQ on a budget. Look around on the boards for the Arc Audio XXK's The 4050XXK and 2050XXK are incredibly clean amps and have enough power to fill the car with music and you can pick them up pretty cheap now. I did a review of these amps on my site. Arc Audio 4050XXK and 2050XXK NEW Power Testing Added

    OP you seem to be confused on the "active" setup, active is normally used to describe the front speakers not the sub

    a 2 way active is a 4 channel amp, in which 2 channels power the tweeters and 2 channels power the woofers, you use crossovers on the amp or head unit or external processor to tell what frequency range goes to each pair of speakers. So you would not use the passive crossovers that come with your component set

    If you intend to use the passive x-overs then you just need a 2 channel amp
