    questions on runnin another amp to my system

    As soon as I get my new car, I will be putting my system back in! Im currently running 2 12 inch Alpine Type Rs being powered by a RF 900w Mono block. Ill be also adding underglow, and replacing the factory battery with a red top which was in my other car. I plan on buying a monte carlo which has a 104 amp stock alt. already. I will be swapping the front and rear speakers with 4-way pioneers in the front and 5-way in the rear. I was thinkin of adding a small amp just to push the speakers, but i was undecided if i wanted to add another one to push the subs also; Ill also be bypassing the factory amp! what would i need to add another amp and anyone kno any good small amps to add that are reasonably priced? Ill be wiring the big amp with this...

    Help, Please!!!!

    4 way = overkill
    5 way = beating a dead horse

    Why don't you get some nice 2-way components instead? It'll sound a LOT better.

    So you're asking about what, a four channel amplifier? We can't really give you any reccomendations without the specs on the speakers your using, or what you consider a 'decent' price.

    RMS (Nominal) power on those speakers is fairly low. An amplifier that can put out between 50-75 watts per channel should be fine. 'Quality' amps can be anywhere from $150 to thousands of dollars. I'll assume because of the speakers you have you're probably looking for closer to $100-$200, in which case some nice four channel amps to consider are ones by JL, Alpine, and others that i'm sure people will suggest.

    more importantly, WHY do they have to run at max power?? Is it a race?
