    What Amp for my speakers?

    I have this head unit:
    Sony CR-350 (35watt x 4 tape deck, very low RMS.)

    Driving these speakers:
    Polk db525 http://www.cardomain.com/item/POLDB525
    Pioneer TS-A1370R http://www.cardomain.com/item/PIOTSA1370R

    I want to remove the head unit and have an amp drive the speakers. I want the amp to hook up to my PC and the volume control will be controlled from the PC.

    How many channels and how many amps? Don't really know what brands are good for Amps.

    Make it simple. One amp. How many channels depends on how many speakers you'll be driving (looks like 4 from the links). 50 watts (RMS) x 4 channels should do you good. Alpine, Audiobahn, Clarion, Infinity, Kenwood, Kicker, MTX, Pheonix Gold, Pioneer, Polk, JL, JVC, Rockford Fosgate.... Name brands. You'll be fine. Check your local car audio shops you can also go to Crutchfield online. They've been pretty good with prices and service with me.

    Looking at the Clarion APA450. I can get one pretty cheap. About $110.
    50watt x 4.
