Status: Total Car Audio Newb
I have been looking on ebay for a 4-channel amp with around 100 watts per channel in hopes of running my new audio setup off the one amp.
What I need power for:
New 6.5 mb quart discuss component (I just build some kickpanels for the components) and one 12" polk db sub (used but sounded great in guys car for only $40) - possibly putting 4" in the dash in the future of my 98 reg cab s10
I have a budget on my amp setup, its around $250 (give or take)
Seems like there are some 4 channel amps on ebay that say they push about 50-75 watts per channel for just under $200
i.e. ALPINE V 12 SERIES MRV F340 4 CHANNEL *NEW* just sold for $171
One 4-channel amp OR Two 2-channel ampS?
Would I be better off getting 2 amps that are about 100 watts per channel each, and bridging one amp for my sub, or just getting one four channel for now and then getting a mono sub amp later? What are my advantages / disadvantages? If I expand my budget now will I save costly upgrades in the future?
Are the 5 channel amps worth the money??
I am thinkin that if one amp goes out, I can replace it cheaply instead of buying a hoss daddy 5 or 6 channel amp and it go kaboom cuz I don't know what the hell I am doin'
Thanks All! - Lewix
One more thing, some amps are rated 14.1 and others like 12.4 volts or something... is this something to look for when buying pls anyone help me out!
