I have 4 Clarion 100 watt 6x9's in a box in the back of my Blazer. I also have a 50watt Bazooka 8" amplified tube. Sounds pretty good just running off of the HU. Do you think it would be worth it to add a 4way amp to the 6x9's?

Thanks,
Hawk

you could even save money by buying a 2 channel amp, and running 2 6x9 in parallel off each channel.(2ohms) you'd save money because it will be cheaper to get a smaller amp and drop the resistance to double the power.

How much power would be enough? Any amp recommendations?

You could buy this mono amp, and wire all 4 of your 6x9's together. Go to http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/wiringwizard.asp to see how to wire them for the impedance you want.

I think the kicker KX650.4 is still at cardomain. That thing does 125x4 and is only 220. Refurb but Kicker amps are solid. Actually....... here it is

I have never amped 6x9's before... would the sound increase/quality be worth the $$ for the amp? Also.. is there any wiring that I would need to invest in also? A kit or anything..??

Thanks,

as long as you're happy with the sound coming from the back of your truck, id say amp them. they will be louder and cleaner.
