    Mini amp question

    Okay so I have been searching for mini amp and have only found 1 thing on it all the other search results are for mac mini's. Maybe there is another term for it. I am looking for the type of amp thats built into headunits so I don't have to rewire everything. All I can find is this http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/revi...0watt-amp.html . I really hope there is more mini amp selection.

    OHHH, I use 4 motorcycle amps in my setup.... here is a link on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/2-CH-300W-MOTORC...3A1%7C294%3A50. They are called motorcycle amps, thats why you cant find them. The 4 I have are only 150 watts each, but only because I didnt need all that power. Either way, you will have to rewire stuff.

    Now I could put them in the place where the stock head unit was and put the touch screen infront, or do you think it would get to hot? Its a 2x dimm

    P.S.
    Found this guy looks pretty good.

    If you do decide to put them in the HU compartment, you have to come up with a really good cooling solution. These amps are small and dont have the large surface area of bigger amps so they can heat up alot when being used. I was going to suggest the 4 channel version, but they are really hard to find. When you get them, I would cut a hole in the top and mount fans. Only thing I am not sure of is to have the fans blow air away or towards the amps.

    My idea was I would just wire it up near the stock wiring harness so they way when I sell the car I can just pull the mini amp out and wire the stock headunit back up.

    You can do that, thats actually how I have mine. I bought a plug and play kit. Basically I wired the PC to the new wiring kit and it has a adapter that plugs into the cars current kit. That way I don't have to cut into the cars original wiring. All I do is press a small button and the adapter pops off, plug in the Head unit and I'm done. Although now this is pointless since I have heavily modified the car, I can never revert back to stock, unless I replace the whole dash from top to bottom.
