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:
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.
Infinity Kappa Four
Class D, 125 watts RMS x 4 channel at 4 ohms
300W RMS x 2 [bridged[ @ 4 ohms
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.
