Amps help and comments

Hi all,

I planned buying a new car stereo for my Accord 2003, I went in many places to hear different kind of speakers, I tried Kenwood, Kicker, Pioneer, Alpine, MTX audio, Polk Audio and much more. And what i planned to buy is the following:

Sub - Kicker L7 12" (I haven't decide if I would buy one or two)
Radio - Pioneer DEH-P590IB
Front Speakers - Pioneer TS-D161R or TS-D601P which are the same
Rear Speakers - Pioneer TS-D691R or TS-D901P which are also the same :P

Then the problem comes with the amp, I got a suggestion to buy 2 Kenwood amps. I tried to look on it on the internet, i know I should buy a D class one and for the speakers i still don't know if a pair of speakers uses 2 or 1 channel :P. So it would be a 2 or 4.

I would need your help please to figure out which amps i should buy and have any comments on what i planned to buy. By the way my budget for the amps is about 300$. And is there something missing in all this probably some wire but I don't really which one to buy a 4 or 8?

Thx a lot!

I've been using pioneer amps for my last 4 cars, always had good sound and never had a problem.

The L7 needs lots of power. I'd go for 2 of them, and the new premeire amp that does 2000 wrms, plus the 4x150 for the speakers. You'll need 0 ga wire and distribution

Get a 4 channel amp for your speakers and a mono class D for your sub.
Power wise, try and match the RMS of your speakers.
For the brands, I would stick with the same brands you purchased, pioneer, kicker, all make great products.

You are going to need to increase the budget on your amps, $300 is not going to get you much at all for quality new equipment.

Well I thought about getting this amp for my sub, KAC-9103D made by kenwood. 1800 watt max, D mono.
For my speakers i thought about the KAC-8403 which is also made by kenwood. It has 800 watt max and have 4 channel.

Would that be ok or should i turn to something else^
