    amplifier help, new to car audio.

    i just recently purchased two Audiobahn Alum10n's which run at 800w rms, and i need to find an amplifier which will power those, and my door speakers, which run at 45w rms each. id like to find one decently cheap, as im just now graduating high school. help?

    Re: amplifier help, new to car audio.

    you won't get one cheap amp to run both speakers and subs at the power levels you want.

    get two separate amps, maybe even used. check the classifieds. a 2 channel amp for the speakers should be pretty cheap. a monoblock class D for the subs will cost a bit more. you need to determine the voice coil impedance for the subs. single or dual? 2 or 4 ohm? Powerbass has some affordable amps that are decent. what vehicle is this going into? some cars require adapters and interfaces to add equipment. do you have a factory or aftermarket head unit?

    don't forget an amplifier wiring kit, and paying someone who knows what they are doing to install everything.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
