    Icon32 Amplifier / Speaker compatibility

    I need help. I have been going to all these sound shops and they all just want to sell you what they have and really dont want to just give advice.
    I got from a friend of mine 3 amps:
    Rockford Fosgate 401s 1200w max 100wrms x 2 @ 4ohms
    Rockford Fosgate 501S 1500w max 125wrms x 2 @ 4ohms
    and a
    Rockford Fosgate 601S 1800w max 150wrms x 2 @ 4ohms

    He said he kept blowing speakers and especially tweeters.
    What kind of system could I design using these amps. I have a Toyota Tacoma extended cab truck, so not much room. I also have a Pioneer DEH-P4500MP
    head unit and the stock speakers.I would like to keep the head unit and maybe get an EQ, but what kind of speakers do I match up with which of the three amps?
    Can I even use all three amps? I would like to get a "money is no object" solution and a "money is an object solution" haha. Like $200 for front speakers, $200 for rear speakers and $200 for subs as a guideline. Please help. I am kinda new to all this. Or just what in the hell can I do with all this?
    Thank all 'yall for your time

    Re: Amplifier / Speaker compatibility

    I would probably use the 501s to run a component set in front. I would use the 601s bridged to one 12" sub. The 501s you could use to power two rear speakers, but I tend to think that is not necessary, so I would probably sell the 501s and use the extra money to buy a better component set or a better sub than I could otherwise afford.
