    Its a Honda premium system and Im bypassing factory amp. The headunit outputs differential balanced signal so my options are limited with amps.

    I found one which is the JL audio RD and XD series.
    But JL is kind of $$$ when it comes to value so Im looking at other options.

    What year and vehicle do you have? I have a newer one (Honda Ridgeline) with the upgraded sound system, but I completely bypassed the stock amplifier with my Alpine PDX V9 & Lc6i.

    I have a 2016 Accord Touring. How did you bypass the amp? Did you use a harness or tapped RCA onto the speaker outputs?

    I looking for a 4 channel because I already have a monoblock amp for my sub

    The Lc6i is a line output converter (LOC), so I used the output from the stock harness to go directly into the LOC.

    Re: Looking for a 4 Channel amp

    Can anyone recommend a balanced to unbalanced converter?

    Instead of a looking for an amp that accepts balanced signal, Id rather just get a converter.

    I was planning on getting the Wolfram 4 channel that’s on sale right now if I’m able to find a converter.

    I guess I’m stuck with the JL RD400 since the JL HD Series is too much

    any other recommendations?

    Just use normal RCAs. There are plenty of quality LOCs. Zapco has one

    Ill just gamble on the amp and return if it doesnt work.

    My 2 choices right now are Wolfram W-125 and Sundown SAX-100.4 V.2

    Leaning towards Wolfram because of the price. Should I pull the trigger?

    Sure. Thats plenty of power. A bit big but if you have the space go for it.
