    This is good to know.

    Thanks for the info guys, I am gonna keep an eye on the classifieds here as well as on ebay. I saw the Alpine MRX-V70 go for $200 on ebay last night, so I am slightly leaning that way.

    I just bought an Arc Audio XXD5080 for $130 shipped off ebay. It is tiny, weighs almost nothing and retails for $380. It is lightweight and sounds equivalent to the Class AB Memphis monster amplifier I had installed before. I think there is still one more available on eBay right now.

    For those interested, I ended up with an Infinity Kappa Five, 5 channel amp.

    Feel free to critique my purchase.

    Re: 5 channel amp recommendations?

    SInce the OP noted the RE xtx500.5 , i figured i'd write briefly.

    It has now been discontinued, but can still be found at places for as low as 190 dollars or so.

    I am very happy with it for a full-system amp. It isn't a powerhouse, so you should get _relatively_ efficient speakers- but i cannot complain about the sound or the size.
    I mounted it to the underside of my passenger seat in my subaru forester.

    My webpage has pictures of the guts of it compared to an old-school audio art 260.6xe, as well as pictures of the install, and other info about the amp:
    www.c-j-l.net/Home/audio/subaru_stereo_installation_full]subaru_stereo_installation_full - Useful-Info

    Enjoy!
