    4 Channel Amp Recommendation

    Hello, I joined the forum to get some suggestions for a 4 channel amp. I have a 2010 F150 extended cab FX2. I have not installed anything yet but I am planning on using my MTX 81000D amp from my last vehicle to power two Alpine shallow mounts SWR-T10s. I ordered a custom under the seat box for them already. I have already purchased 2 sets of Alpine type Rs 6x8s for the doors but am wondering what type of amp to hook to them. (I am using the factory HU btw) I am also hoping to power both amps with one 0 AWG kit, (planning on going with knukoncepts wire but open to suggestions) was also hoping for some input on that. Please help me out with any thoughts or concerns...I would appreciate it.

    Thanks!!!

    200 bucks will get you a PPI P900.4. Tiny and powerful. My recommendation.

    I also just put up a review of some stuff I got from Knu with pics if you feel like checking it out

    Re: 4 Channel Amp Recommendation

    Do you think the speakers can handle that amp? Seems kind of powerful, I've never used a 4 channel amp though so I don't really know...

    Re: 4 Channel Amp Recommendation

    Just because it's powerful doesn't mean you have to use all of it. Just consider it extra headroom.

    I'd like to stay under 200 probably, rather go new depending on the shape of a used amp.

    Yeah I know I need a loc, I am not sure which one to go with. I know some come with the front/rear output and a sub output. Someone on a Ford truck forum referred me to the PAC FRD24 but it only has front/back output and I am not too sure if I want the sub amp hooked to anything but a sub output. (worried about fader issues, maybe I'm crazy)

    Gotcha, that could be the way to go with the PAC LOC then, not real sure where I could mount it though. Maybe in the console compartment. I'm debating if I want to attempt to do all this myself, I have always installed my stuff in my prior vehicles but I may be in over my head on this one haha

    naw pretty easy still. just tap into the speaker wires off the back of the deck ,hook up the loc ,run an rca to the eq the center console ,then rca's out to the amps ,all done .

    Re: 4 Channel Amp Recommendation

    I'm more worried about getting power to the amps and getting them installed somewhere that would look decent. I think I would have to put them on the back wal which seems like it will be a pain, I've always just attached them to the box in a trunk or to some sort of mount. I've tried to do some research on it, but I'm starting to lean towards just paying someone to do it.

    Re: 4 Channel Amp Recommendation

    guys.. please help me choose amplifier
    i will need 4 channel 1 amp system

    used JL 300/4 class A/B amp ($170)

    bnew PPI P900.4 class D amp ($230)

    bnew Soundstream TX4.560 class A/B amp ($80+)

    which do you think is the best choice?
    among the amps..

    i like what neo recommended seem powerful and upon reading class D seems to have an advantage.. (does it really?)

    my 2nd choice is king's recommendation... very affordable and with a subwoofer control

    what is main difference of class D and AB amps?
    any suggestion whereelse can i get the PPI cheaper? it is 190$ at sonic.. but no stock available.. next cheapest i saw is 230$

    my system consist of
    clif design CD50.4
    generic 4channel amp (going to be replaced)
    targa 12" DVC subwoofer (may be replaced)
    if ok.. i would also like to ask recommendations for a new sub... maybe just an 8 or 10"

    thanks
