    Best amplifier for my setup

    Hello C.A community! I've been browsing these forums for past week and finally decided it was time to post.

    Some background information: I'm in the process of my first sound system build taking place in a 1999 honda civic sedan. I primarily listen to electronic music such as trance and techno, along with some rock & heavy metal as well. trunk space is not an issue. I don't want the system to aim for loudness, i prefer quality and accuracy

    So, I'm in possession of a Pioneer TS-SWX251 sub because a friend was selling it at an amazing price.

    I've been doing some research and I'm convinced that a Pioneer TS-D1320C component speaker system will be a good addition to my system. I'm very open to possible alternatives but my price cap for speakers is 170$ taxes+S&H in.

    Now my question to you enthusiasts, what amplifier do you think would best compliment my build? And what else would I need to add to the build (if anything)?
    I'm not very well educated in the pro/cons of different RMS/Ohms combinations and the like. My budget for the amp is also 170$ taxes+S&H in.

    Any suggestions&explanations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    EDIT: Forgot to mention the HU I already have is: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-RNpQDqs...H-X2600UI.html

    Why this sub particularly? what specs tell you it goes well with the system? I'm asking because I would like to learn.

    They are proven decent budget amps. Youll see about 900-1000 watts at 1 ohm with it. There one of the top best bangs for the buck.

    also the sub is a good sub. Both subs are proven and budget friendly

    Re: Best amplifier for my setup

    Howdy Bill, This would be a good start for u.

    Precision Power BK800.4 800W RMS 4-Channel Class A/B Black Ice Series Car Audio Amplifier* at Onlinecarstereo.com

    The equip u have is indeed not the best but to suggest throwing it all away and startin over is Ludacris. This is what u have so why not give it a whirl? Being this is ur first system it will indeed be a nice step over stock sounds. Will it shake the block, well no.
    Take a look at the amp Ive linked, it would do nice for the components ur considerin and juice the sub u have nicely. I cant attest to the amp personly but lots of people run them and recommend them, also its inside ur budget. A word of advice would be to buy a Quality Amplifier Wire install kit.

    And if u decide to upgrade the sub later I would def recommend American Bass subs they have decent entry level subs that bang hard and the Xfl is a beast. Also Sundown E series are in "my opinion" the BEST bang for buck subs. Look for Bstock pricing on EMF. I couldn't find any flaws in the 6 bstock subs I bought.



    97 Ram
    2 sets Kicker ks650.2 on a
    Mmats 2050x

    2 American Bass XFL12s(4th order) on
    American Bass VFL110.1
    Kinetic hc1800

    Traded to: WinkyChevelle, Sold to: Outer,Markbuhler007,67bass71, Bought from: Mylows10
