    what amp for 4 alpine S type components and a single 10" sub?

    Ive done alittle research and still have questions...

    Im going to be using 2 6.5" Alpine S type mids, 2 6x8" Alpine S type's and a single sub (havnt decided on brand yet) in my F 350. the Alpines are all rated at about 75 rms 250w max at 4 ohm, and i have no idea how much the sub will be rated for... I would like to use a 5 channel amp to simplify the wiring, but from what ive seen i would have to get a HUGE amp to make enough power. Can anyone suggest a 5 channel amp that wont destroy my budget (600-800 total for amps and speakers). Im not against using a 4 channel and a mono, would that be a better setup? please advise, what power rating amp should i be looking for? as for brand preferance, i like soundstream and ppi.

    From what I hear Hifonics makes a good 5 cha. that's reasonably priced

    Ive been looking at used/refurbished soundstream and ppi amps on ebay, i think ill be able to come in right at my bottom line buy shopping around. all 4 alpine speakers are going to be about 120 shipped, 10" box for the truck is 30 bucks (been told its a great box for the money) and the amps are around 100-150.
