    Image Dynamics CTX65CS ....amp?

    Hey guys, purchased some of these bad boys for only my front two speakers. Gonna leave the rear stock. But was wondering if i would be ok with a 2 channel amp to power the fronts? If so what amp do you recommend? Or should i go 4 channel?

    I was going to go with the Profile ap600, but these are sold out everywhere

    Any opinions? thankyou!

    I would stay away from profile if your budget can allow it. Maybe look into ID's new amps, or something of higher quality. What is your budget?

    check the classifieds here for a high powered 2ch. or get a 4ch. and bridge it. The 4ch. might leave you with some options for the future
