Hi guys, i'm building a system in the 350Z.
So far i got is the Alpine 9835, Alpine ipod module, and DLS iridium 6.2.
I got $2000 budget for the amps, 1 sub & install (wires,etc..)

What amp should i get one 4 channel or 2 2channel?
I'm planning on getting the Idmax 10 v3.

I will assume the install plus box, wires, etc cost $1000

So $1000 for amps and sub.

Any help will be appreciated.

It will be run passive.

I want the DLS amps but kinda out of my budget.

DLS A3 100X2 - $495 ea maybe the Ref C20 but don't know the price.

Is the Arc Audio amps still good?

2100 XXK - $389 ea or KAR 400.2 - $285 ea

How much does the Orion amps with 100 x 2 or 100 x 4 cost?

Anymore recommendations?

I am going to be using a JL 300/2 install is tomorrow. I will let you know how it sounds. If I could have afforded it I would have gone with either a DLS A3( I think can't remember) or an ARC 4150( I think not the kar).

Outbacksport,
I got the install done yesterday and they sound :eek: I am very impressed with the Iridiums in general. They have more midbass then I was expecting. They handle the power from the 300/2 lik a champ. All in all i am very happy :veryhapp: Good luck.

Nice to hear that. Where did you install the tweeters? Did mounting did you use?
I heard that they sound best on the a pillar or the dash. I'm going to get the
TRU Tech 2.100 to power this comps and two IDV3 8" in a custom box in the trunk.
