    need help to chose a 4-ch amp for my focals in front and 6x9 eclipses rear

    ok this is my actual set up

    in front I have a comp set focal access 165a1 50rms and in the rear 2 6x9 eclipse PS6900 80rms
    they are running direct from my HU, a pioneer 3300 with 20rmsx4 but looking for more power to feed those speakers

    my budget is $100-$140 top
    my car is a compact car (Honda fit), so size and battery saving is important



    these are some of the options I have look so far, which one would give more clear sound with my ficals? or if you have another option feel free to post it.

    F400-4 CADENCE 4-CHANNEL AMP $110

    75 Watts x 4 continuous, 85 x 4 dynamic power (2 Ohm load), 4 channel mode.

    maybe in the near future I change my 6x9 for a 10" sub.

    If you care about space use and electrical efficiency, you can skip the Class A/B amplifiers right of bat. Look into Class D amplifiers, my favorite being Alpine PDX and Kenwood XR-4S, but there are some other good ones too. I don't know why people list a long list of features they like... power, size, quality, etc, then drop the budget number... $150 tops! Let me tell you that you usually get what you pay for. I strongly believe in that. If you want something closer to your budget, Alpine MRX-F30 perhaps could work. It's just, it has less power output than the above, but still plenty for most speakers.
