Hey guys, I have a PowerAcoustik 4 chan right now but I think it's on its last leg. Two of the channels are dead and it makes weird noises when the bass is turned up and they only stop if I touch it.. Like I said, weird. Anyways Im looking to get a new 4 channel, as inexpensive as possible without losing too much quality. I still want my High's to sound great! My speakers are front and back Alpine Type S 6.5 inch component speakers all the way around. Any advice is appreciated!

Also I need a better place to mount them as right now they are mounted directly onto the box which seems to cause a problem with the 4 chan amp. Are they okay there or will the subs mess them up with the pounding? Any suggestions there too are much appreciated!

kicker, fosgate, jl audio, too many good choices. How much power you looking for?

Well I think that the max RMS that the speakers can handle is 150, not sure about that, so I guess I'm looking for something under that per channel. I'm not really sure what the ideal wattage would be so I guess whatever you think is right based on what the speakers can handle.

Ebay, best place to check. All those companies listed here will do what you want. All around $150-$250.

crutchfield is showing those speakers can 8-50 watts RMS, in which case something like the alpine f-250 amp would work well with those, it can put off 40 watts rms per speaker at 4 ohms.
