Some Audio Questions

Whats up everybody.

I am putting in Alpine 6x9 speakers in the front and rear...(yes i know some modification will need to be done) and im going to amp them. What amp would you guys recommend for these speakers?

Also, what wire kit would be the best to wire up two Alpine type R subs(The 1800w ones) and the Apline 2000 watt amp?

Thanks-ETHEN-

I would just stay with Alpine and do a 4 channel, I know they have one that is 50w x 4, and another that is 100w x 4, just find one that matches the rms power of your speakers the best.
Btw. I have 2 Alpine amps and they have been some of the best amps I have had.

i have 4 gauge on my 1200 watt amp, you may just want to go on up to 2 or 0.

also, I have an alpine amp for my speakers. works fine.

IDK How much that Alpine 4 channel cost but you can get a Rockford Fosgate P400.4 for about $175. It'll push any kind of speaker you will ever buy. Oh and for the wiring for the subwoofer amp, just get a 4g Cadance wiring kit. For the subs, just get a roll of 14g Scosche from Wal-Mart.

The Mrp-300 can be found for around $160, the Pdx-x4 is pricey, around $360. I do like Rockford amps as well.

i have some older stuff from knukonceptz and it is great for me still, even using the same piece after using it in 3 different cars. only had to shorten it for the truck. i dont know if their manufacturing process has changed since then. there is someone on the forum i help run that just became a distributor for stinger. you can go over there and check out his prices. link is in my sig.
