    decent amp?

    i'm new to car audio i'm not looking for the top of the line system, just want something sounding good in my car. i have a panasonic head unit, sony xplode front and rear speakers, 2 10" JL subs and its all powered by a lightning audio amp. i'm looking for another amp to power my subs cuz the amp i have is too weak for the subs. i'm planning to use my lightning audio amp to power my speakers and buy another amp for the subs. i'm on a tight budget and i found a rockford fosgate 100a2 amp for a good deal. i know this isn't much power but will it be decent enough to power my subs. also another option is a alpine 100m amp. it costs more but would it be much better? or should i just run my speakers off the head unit and use my existing amp for the subs. thanks in advance.

    Alpine amp

    I have the Alpine M100 amp. This amp is pushing a 12 and a 10 and i plan on hooking up 2 more subs to it. I have a friend who had the same amp hooked up to 4 Alpine 12" type "r" and won state comp off it. i cant remember the DB but it was loud, he had it hooked up in the back of his wife's civic. This amp has plenty of power and it is only 3/4 of the way up on mine. Alpine underrates their stuff just like all the good stuff. hope this helps. look on ebay for one, i found one for under $100
