    I plan on eventually having a sub with it's own small AMP seperate (but that's down the road).

    my $0.05..(3 more than you want, 5 more than you need )

    either amp shold work fine for normal speakers-- it is kind of personal preferance-- i don't think that you will be able to tell too much of a difference between the 2 in a blind test.

    as for the pro's/cons: a auto amp is typically more expensive than a small 'motorcycle' amp, but usually makes much more power, but are much larger, but the motorcycle amps are reported to be just as good as factory stereos, and are usually less than $100 for a 4 channel version...

    the choice is yours (i don't give brand suggestions for audio equipment-- audio is too subjective to get a reliable opinion in most cases--i prefer to give advice that allows you to make your own decision-- then you can't blame me when it isn't what you want )

    Any suggestion on a good quality 4 channel motorcycle amp?

    (I have to admit, I never thought of this as a solution, so I've done zero research)... some direction/suggestions are welcome.

    Well actually if you think about it, it's another reason to loath the US, since they are the ones who don't follow the standards that the rest of the world follows.... ya know... sorta like metric vs standard,whaddya know... another unique standard for USA only.... just a thought....

    And you sound like getting the Habey to work is a problem... is there something I don't know about that I'm missing?

    p.s. - Btw, up here in igloo land, it's Sirius satelite, not XM.
