Need an amp

Since kicker doesn't have what I want, I will have to look elsewhere.

Need either a 2 channel or 4 channel amp that puts out 600watts peak at 4 OHM. Not bridged for that, must be 4 ohm. Looking for low distortion, and must not just be a sub amp. Going to be used for the highs.......

First off, how many channels do you need? 2 or 4?
Second, 600 watts peak, so I'd guess 300 watts RMS, and that could be 150 or 75 watts per speaker (depending on number of channels).
Third, any budget?

Either two amps with 2 channels or one amp with 4.

I want 600 per channel. 400 will work. but would really like to have 600 peak per channel. Yes, I know this would power most subs. These arent you everyday circut city speakers.

Budget, I threw that word out long ago.

600 peak or you mean rms cuz those are 2 different factors. unless you have a set of very high end comps you should not be runnin more than 100-150 rms per side

I need 400RMS PER speaker. With 600 peak, I should be fine, as it should go as loud as I want to listen to music to.
