    4 Channel Amp Recommendations

    Hi guys i am looking to buy an amp for my Durango and am looking for suggestions. I have been looking at the Directed 600/4 or the Viper 500.4, I am powering 2 sets of Infinity Kappa 60.5cs in my 2001 Dodge Durango with a AVIC-N1 Head Unit.

    I have found the Directed new for $210 and the Viper for $250 and my price range im looking to stay in is about $250-$300 Max.

    Anyone have any suggestions and all suggestions are much appreciated

    Jason

    Its your money
    watts are watts.
    the MA Audio Mi 4 channel would do just dandy
    the HK-204SX is not what you want, its more of a sub amp.

    Better speakers in the front, worse speakers in the rear
    You might want to add a Koda 8 to pick up the lacking midbass the Infinities have
