    Diyma sometimes has used ones for cheap. Great amps and worth the money.

    Re: SQ 6ch. amp?

    Personally, I'd look into a solution with more amplifiers. It seems a bit of a waste to spend money on "high power" 6-channel amplifier, then use two channels to power your tweeters. I'd look into using a cheaper relatively low power 4-channel amplifier to power mid-range and tweeters, and use something bigger to power the mid-bass, or a relatively high wattage 4-channel amp could power the midbass and also subwoofer with the other two channels. Alternatively, you can go with a 4-channel amp to power mids and mid-bass, and throw in a cheap 2-channel amplifier to power tweeters (e.g. Boston Acoustics GT-275, if they're still sold). Wiring and fusing the wires can get a bit messy. However, if the complete system could be built with just three devices (2 amps + DSP, or just three amps), I'd take this route. Wiring and fusing for three devices should not be too bad. Take a look at the fused 3-way power distribution blocks from knu.


    PS: Also take a look at SoundStream STL6.620. Two channels are rated 2x100watts RMS, and the other four are 4x60watt RMS. I have seen a test that showed that the test amp provided more like 4x70watts + 2x 130watts (all at 4ohm).

    Specs on those? I checked ebay recently, no US Amps six, and I doubt I can afford one lol
    ZED FTW and the head room yo.
    I'll chip in $5 to help you lol send me your paypal addy.

    The power consumption is crazy low, and low noise, very low noise if you have good rca's and a good deck/processor.

    This. If you have that much of a budget why are you trying to get by with the lowest cost 6 channel you can? Get decent 4 channel and 2 channel amps.

    But also, Zed FTW.

    Damn, this thread sure has piqued my interest. Just emailed Vertex about trading my DC 175.4 towards a Leviathan

    It comes with mounting feet that you screw into the amp.
