    Which amp is right for me?

    Here's my current setup:

    Head Unit: Kenwood Excelon KDC-X395

    Front Speakers: Kicker DS65.2

    Rear Speakers: Kicker DS693

    I tried to include links, but because I'm a new user, it won't let me post them. Crutchfield carries all of these products and are easily searched on the website, sorry for the inconvenience.


    My price range is about 200 dollars, it can go over if need be, but I'd rather not.

    suggestions? any help would be greatly appreciated!

    For $200 you could get a solid amp. You could pick up a Rockford T400-4 or something comparable for around that price on eBay.

    How do they get away charging 189 for almost double the RMS as a comparable Fosgate? Is there something I'm missing?

    Rockford is American made. Labor costs more

    Well... it's "designed and engineered" here. I don't think they even assemble them here anymore. And they're relying on their brand recognition for the price hike. Love me RF though. Shame they priced me out of their amps.
