Default Advice on new 4 chan amp

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!

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.
