Need an Amp for speakers

I'm buyin all 4 5x7" polk/MOMO Performance speakers for my truck sometime this week or next week, have the money in my hand. I wanna amp these and give all 4 speakers full power. I dont wanna spend more than 200 on an amp, maybe 250. Whichs 4-channel amp do you suggest for around that money?

180 watts Peak

NONONONONONONO!!!!! 200 bucks for a 4channel amp?? That's quite a bit...

Let's see.... well... 56k won't let me...so

www.sonicelectronix.com
www.etronics.com

Those have the best prices. One of my friends just ordered a Power Akoustic LT980 for his two subs from the first one.

Look on the website onlinecarstereo.com, it's a good place with mid-end equipment, and good pricing with a warranty.
I like SoundStream amps, they have good specs for mids/highs.
Any of these 4-channel amps would work, the RMS for the ones under 200$ are around 60 RMS x 4 but I guarantee it's MORE than enough for your speakers, the amps are quality.

Do you really need a 4way? Why not get a two way, do you think you will need to use Fade? If not a 2way will work

Profile amps are decent. A 50x4 Profile should run you 125-150.

haha, they are good but definitly not the best. i have some McIntosh amps that beg to differ. We are a Soundstream dealer here in town as well as Dynaudio and DD and i must say Soundstream is definitly making a comeback to where they were in the lates and early 90's. good stuff.

Yeah, McIntosh is a lot better than anyhting JL or Kicker or JBL or Inifnity................

Soundstream is pretty damn good stuff, and I may TRY to get me a pair of those Human Riegn amps for my FX4, when i get it...

Along with some Skaaning woofers, Morel Mid, and Scanspeak Revelator Tweeters. mmmmmm.

Zapco amps rock too. Never heard them but they are expensive and have amazing specs.
