    ~150 amplifier reccomendation

    Looking for an amplifier to finish off my setup... as listed in my sig I have the following kit ready to go into the Supra (mainly what I have been using before, but not fitted to the Supe yet)...

    Main Unit - Pioneer AVCR6400 6.5" widescreen tuner & AV control
    Secondary Unit - Pioneer MEHP9100 md/cd/tuner (for single cd/md use), to be plugged into IP bus as AUX device for Main Unit.
    CD Unit 1 - 1x CDXP630
    CD Unit 2 - 1x CDXP1230 (a bit 'iffy' may leave it out)
    Front Speakers - Infinity Reference 605cs
    Rear Speakers - Standard Toyota (may also replace with 6" Infinity Reference 2-way)

    Car pc will feed analogue aux (left, right, video) inputs on rear of Main Unit, so all volume and outputs are controlled by the Main Unit.

    I'm not looking for massive volume, but something that will be able to feed the speakers nicely - I listen to a wide selection of music, from Pop (Kylie, Madonna, chart stuff), through to rock/metal (Rammenstein, Pumpkins, Soundgarden); passing through a bit of trance and ambient on the way (Lamb, Leftfield, Orbital).

    I was looking at something like the Pioneer PIO-GM6000F (http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/prod..._id=3338&tab=2) ... is it any good for what I am after?

    Alpine MRPF240?

    75Wx4 (MAX)

    RMS 14.4V Power
    100W x 2 [4ohms Bridged (0.3%THD)]
    50W x 4 RMS [2ohms (0.3%THD)]
    40W x 4 RMS [4ohms (0.08%THD)]

    Not bad, pretty similar to the Pioneer; thats about the kind of thing I'm after. It should be plenty for the speakers (rated at ~90wrms IIRC).

    Any others?

    I currently have a 2 channel Magnat amplifier to power my sub. I'm also looking for a 4 channel amplifier, as I want to add another 4 speakers in the car, and I'm getting that Alpine. But first I'll have to finish up my carputer.

    I could recomend this one:

    http://www.ground-zero-audio.com/dow.../gzra4200x.pdf

    I know it is in german but these are the most important specifications:

    4 x 60W RMS (4 x 85W RMS according GZ)
    2 x 136W RMS (2 x 220W RMS according GZ)
    high and lowpass filters on the first two channels
    highpass filter on the other two channels

    According to the test this amplifier is "very good"

    Price is around 200 euro.

    My own experience with GZ is also very good I have their GZPA 1.3000D,
    rated 2300W RMS for my subwoofer.

    I would also consider Hifonics. They sound incredible. A friend of mine has 4 of those on his car, and I tell you, they're worth every euro (and there are lots of them, around 400).
