    Yet another Help Buying Amp ?

    Well I love music and listen to it everywhere and decided my stock speakers just don't cut it anymore. I put in a sub and double din dvd head unit 2 years ago and never got around to upgrading speakers. I ordered a set of coaxial speakers for the back and a set of components for the front, I will list the specs below. I need a little help deciding what a good 4ch amp would be to push my speakers. My ideal budget for the amp is $200 and under. I'm unsure what brands are good and which ones I should stay away from. I know for a fact pyle, boss, power acoustic all have poor quality from experience, unless I was lucky and got all crap units. This was the amp I was thinking about buying, what do you think? If you can offer me any other choices, I would appreciate it.

    Front Component speakers:
    Polk Audio DB6501

    Overall Frequency Response 35Hz-23kHz
    Nominal Impedance 4 ohms
    Power Handling (continuous) 125 w
    Power Handling (peak) 250 w
    Efficiency 92 dB

    Rear Coaxial Speakers
    :
    DB651S

    Overall Frequency Response 50Hz-22kHz
    Nominal Impedance 4 ohms
    Power Handling (continuous) 55 w
    Power Handling (peak) 165 w
    Efficiency 92 dB

    The specs on that amp aren't very good....

    THD at Rated RMS Power 1%
    Signal to Noise Ratio 88 dB
    Input Voltage 14.4v

    If you're on a budget, I would go for something like the MB Quart ONX4.125. If you want a better amp, go Sundown.

    Okay I will look around. I might go for better depending on how much more money were talking. Thanks for the help though.

    Thank You for looking, I didn't even get a chance to look at the manual. Lol maybe they did. Well, I will do some looking around at the above brands listed as well as any other peoples' suggestions.

    Thanks guys. I ended up ordering a sundown which was sold out so I went with a SQA-4100 - CDT Audio 4 Channel Amplifier.

    Wow, nice amp! I didn't know CDT was making amps... I guess Focal does also, so why not...

    Re: Yet another Help Buying Amp ?

    I just got it today!! It's really nice and the best part, the amp was tested by a person with a name. Most electronics come verified from the factory, tested by someone with a number. That leads me to believe that the quality will be great since they are not massed produced.
