Hello,

I am new to this forum, and I was hoping you guys could offer me some advice. I just puschased a set of Focal 165 V30 component speakers to put in my truck.

Here are the specs on these speakers:

Manufacturer Focal

SKU 165 V30

Speaker Size 6.5"

Speaker Design 2-Way

RMS Power Output (Watts) 80W

Peak Power Output (Watts) 160W

Sensitivity (dB) 92dB

Frequency (Hz) 55Hz - 25kHz

Tweeter Design TNB Inverted Dome

Tweeter Composition Neodymium

Woofer Composition Polyglass Cone

Woofer Surround Butyl Surround

My question is regarding what amplifier to use to power the speakers. I am currently looking at a couple options. I want to use a 4 channel amp so that I can use it to power a sub if/when i decide to add one in (at some later date). So here is what I need from my amp:

1. It obviously needs to be powerful enough to push these components

2. I want it to provide enough power at 4 ohms when the remaining 2 channels are bridged to power a subwoofer - I'm thinking around 300 watts rms.

I'm currently looking at two different 4 channel amps:

MB Quart ONYX4.125

A/B, 125 watts x 4 channels at 4 ohms rms

When bridged @ 4 ohms: 500 watts x 2 chan.

Price: $210.00

Infinity Kappa Four

Class D, 125 watts RMS x 4 channel at 4 ohms

300W RMS x 2 [bridged[ @ 4 ohms

Price: $261.00

I am concerned about using a class D amp to power my component speakers - anyone have experience with this?

Which amp would you recommend for these speakers, or recommend any other amps that I should look at. I'm trying to stay as close to $200 dollars as possible for the amp.

Thanks!
