    Re: Amp choice

    Here's prices:

    Soundstream rubicon 4.600 - $145
    Hifonics Zeus zxi80.4 - $140

    Or....I just found a Cadence 5-channel for $150..F100-5. That's 150 watts per channel at 2 ohm. The Infinity's are only rated to 90 watts though.

    Re: Amp choice

    Nah, with the 5 channel I can run the infinity comps up front, put some coaxials in the rear doors and 5th channel for the sub.

    I just didn't look too hard at the 5 channels because they're a fair bit more than the 4-channels for the few I saw initially, so I was only going to run the comps on the front 2 channels and the sub off the rear channels bridged.

    I may have to rethink that if I can find a reasonable 5 channel in the same price range.

    Hey op, did you end up making a decisions yet? I was also looking at that cadence f100-5. Just curious if you found any reason not to get that one.
