Default Recommend an amp

I've got a set of components that take 100 rms and want to run either an IDQ 10 or 12. What is a good 4 channel amp that I can use to run all three of those? I've been out of the loop for 8 or 9 years and don't know what brands are good anymore. I'd prefer to keep it around $200 if possible.

But that amp will cost you $$.

This amp would be great for you:
http://cgi.ebay.com/KICKER-ZX650-4-4...item414e18d9e4

Your components should be 4ohm so you can run two channels for the doors. Then get a 2ohm sub and bridge the last two channels and run them to the sub. That would give you the perfect amount of power to the door speakers and the sub. Around 120w for the doors and around 500w to the sub.

I have a JL V2 Slash Mono block class D amp its amazing and I have had it for close to four years without any problems. I used to power to two 12 W3 JL's and it had so much thump I kept it to about half power. The only thing is they run about $450.

But JL is def a gret brand and It will last you longer then anything else.

I'll look at that. I've also been looking at this one. http://www.woofersetc.com/p6837/DSC4...-Amplifier.htm

I had a Sony Xplode 1200W 4 channel in my old pickup. It pumped 2 Sony 12"s and 2 Kenwood 10"s. It was an amazing system. Competition Db's were 139.

Well, while at a good price, the crunch amps are ABSOLUTELY NOT the way to go if you're looking to power speakers like coaxials...

Reason?
Frequency response: 30-1,200 Hz, 3dB

Your tweeters want to be able to play up to like 16khz.

At 1200hz, you will hear all the vocals, but it will sound like you are covering your ears.

Yeah, I'll have to do something else for the front, but I didn't want to pass up the price on this one.
