What I'll be installing:

- Max. power handling: 120W

- Nom. power handling: 60W

- Peak Power Handling: 120 watts

- RMS Power Handling: 60 watts

- Impedance (per voice coil): 4 ohms

- Power Handling: 200 watts RMS/400 peak

- Impedance/voice coils: single 4 ohm

I am looking for a clean-sounding amplifier that can deliver power at the optimal range for the above speaks/sub setup...ideally due to space limitations, a compact 5-channel amplifier is best for my car but I'm not looking to spend over $1000. As you can see its a complete Focal set-up and focal is known for delivering an acoustic/musical sound. I want an amp that's clean/efficient and lets the focals do wat they were made to do!

So far I've found all of these with their respective prices:

- 4-ohm RMS Power: 150W x 4 + 400W x 1

- 2-ohm RMS Power: 200W x 4 + 600W x 1

- Max RMS Power: 400W x 2 @ 4-ohm + 600W x 1 @ 2-ohm

- 75 watts RMS x 4 + 300 watts RMS x 1 at 4 or 2 ohms

- 150 watts RMS x 2 + 300 watts RMS x 1 in bridged mode (4-ohm stable in bridged mode)

- 100 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms + 500 watts RMS x 1 (at 1.5-4 ohms)

- 75 watts RMS x 4 (at 1.5-3 ohms) + 500 watts RMS x 1 (at 1.5-4 ohms)

- 150 watts RMS x 2 bridged (at 3-6 ohms) + 500 watts RMS x 1 at (1.5-4 ohms)

- RMS Power @13.8V @4 ohm 2 x 130 watts/ 1 x 460 watts

- RMS Power @13.8V @2 ohm 2 x 230 watts

Which of the above amplifier set-ups is highest quality and all-in-all what's the best bang for your buck?

Can anyone recommend to me another amp/set-up that will work best with my speaks?

If I'm going to spend between $500-1,000 on an amp, I want to make sure I get something worth the money! I know Alpine, Audison and JL Audio have been around for a while and have a good rep...the only one i'm not 100% sure on is Cadence as they're newer

Thanks
