Amp Needed with Smallest Footprint

Hey guys, looking for 2/3 amps which have the smallest physical footprint, but can run two sets of 5.25 mid/tw combo and a single 10". Any recommends. Print range for all amps is max of 1200.00 give or take.

Running all focal utopia. 4 - door sedan
11" sub - 45L vented box
5.25 mid/tw - 2 sets - front and rear doors
Electronics - Orion DEQ-30 and Audio control DQX

Most important thing is clean/efficient power, small footprint and sub amp must have some sack.

Take a look at the Memphis amps. Great performers and small footprints.

Alpine PDX 4.150.... almost the same size as an 8x11 piece of paper and has tons of power!

look into a 5channel, these reduce wire bulk and mess, and will definitely take less space than 3 smaller amps together. JL, Kicker, Infinity, JBL, etc... all make good ones as well as Memphis and Alpine to name a few more.

Sorry, running all focal utopia. 4 - door sedan
11" sub - 45L vented box
5.25 mid/tw - 2 sets - front and rear doors

I saw the PDX, but not sure of SQ comming from a digital amp> any reviews out there of these new amps?

I would also consider a 5 channel amp. The new Focal amps are due to land any day. The 5 channel is rated at 75w x 4 and 200w x 1 all into 4 ohm. Measures 2" x 20" x 11", not a super small amp but less size than two comparable amps. A second choice would be the Audison LRX5.600, a little less powerful at 60w x 4 and 180w x 1 but it has proven to be a great 5 channel amp for my customers. It will be a smaller amp as compared to the new Focal amp. I saw one of the new DD amps today that also were a small chassis. Concept HC series of amps have also proven their worth. Might be another amp to look at as well.

MTX's new line of TC amps are tiny tiny as well and they will perform as well as anything plus they are easy on the pocketbook.
