So I have 2 sets of Hertz hi energy 165 components, the older version and I was wondering what the best amp would be to power them? Thanks for answering

This'll do: Crescendo Audio :: Amplifers :: 1000C4 4 Channel Amplfier (http://www.crescendoaudio.com/product.php?productid=17516&cat=0&page=0&featured=Y)

The Crescendo amp is really nice. If you look around the forum you'll notice quite a few guys using Sundown amplifiers. The Crescendo is pretty much exactly the same as Sundown, but it's way cheaper. Tough to beat it.

Do your subs have a single 4 ohm voice coil? If so, you'll need 1,000-ish watts @ 1.3 ohms. Basically, you'll want a 1,200 watt monoblock that'll do rated power @ 1 ohm. Something like this: Audioque: Amps: AQ1200D (http://www.audioque.com/aq/?page_id=26)

Or you could pay a small fortune for a JL Audio 1000/1, Alpine PDX-M12 or Alpine PDX-1.1000

If you give me a budget, I'll find some nice, matching amplifiers...

okay my budget would probably be 200-350 for the speakers and same for the subs!

ANd yes they are single 4 ohms. Rms at 300, max at 600

Check these out.

4 channel: Audioque: Amps: AQ4X90 (http://www.audioque.com/aq/?page_id=32)
monoblock: Audioque: Amps: AQ1200D (http://www.audioque.com/aq/?page_id=26)
Buy here: Audioque: ORDER (http://www.audioque.com/aq/?page_id=72)

They'll set you back $478.

The Hertz components could use a little more power, but they should do pretty good on 90 watts per side. However, your budget would allow you to buy two of the AQ4x90 4 channels if that's something you'd consider doing. They do 200+ watts rms x2 @ 4 ohms bridged. Having two of them would also allow you to bi-amp your components (if the crossovers give you that option)...
