    thx

    Stay away from Legacy, Pyramid, and Boss and you should be just fine on your amp.

    What do you think about Audiobahn? And is 250 watts rms by 4 channels at 4 ohms from an Audiobahn amp too much power for a pair of Boston Acoustic Pro60 components and a pair of Infinity Kappa 6x9's??? Thanks

    Audiobahn is not recommended by anyone on here. If that is what you are looking at, then you need to save up a little longer.

    Why is that, what is actually bad about Audiobahn? Would an infinity amp be better?

    From my experience, Audiobahns tend to be very expensive for what you get. You pay for all that chrome in one way or another.

    That PG amp would be a step up from the audiobahn. You might be able to find a better price on it too.

    no cap. you need power wire, speaker wire, fuse, fuse holder (if you havent wired already) and rca chords.

    Re: help please

    No capacitor, find some threads about caps on here and read up on them. I suggest just getting an amp kit. www.darvex.com is a good place and so is www.knukonceptz.com among other places. I buy most of my stuff from Knukonceptz.

    oh since you already have a mono installed, then you will need a fused distrobution block, a normal distrobution block, and some power wires speaker wires and RCA chords
