Amplifier Help..

I have purchased 4 Elemental Designs SQ'10's Link- http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_21&products_id=106
And now all I need is a right Amp choice.. Keep in mind I also want to amp my speakers as well.. I was looking at an audiobahn 6 channel amp, but maybe you have better ideas..?

you will need a class d amp with about 500w RMS @ 2ohm for the subs. like an alpine MRP-M500

What are the other speakers? front & rear?

IMO 2 amps will be less expensive

Audiobahn has been out of business for almost 2 years now I think.....don't throw your money away on the line that was responsible for the global shortage of chrome. Find a good mono amp and a good 2 / 4 channel to take care of the rest.

Yes. Front and rear. I have had previous cars with systems were I've only had the sub amped.. this one I would like the speakers amped too!

Okay thankyou.. And yea. I had two 12's from audiobahn and they did seem to use a LITTLE excess chrome. haha
