    Good first AMP?

    Im getting my License around the end of November. I have a '95 Ford Escort LX with 60k miles on it.

    Im planning on getting a nice sound system but literally know nothing about them. I plan on getting subs/new speakers/the whole 9 yards.

    My budget for the whole sytem is 500-600 bucks, (preferably 5).

    What would be a good AMP to go with?

    This is going to be my HU: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_113KDCX...5.html?tp=5684

    I dont know what speakers/sub im getting

    thanks.

    (ps: i listen to hip hop only)
