Deciding on Amps

I need some help on Amps. I've been scrolling through a lot lately but I'm having a hard time what to go with!!!

The set up I'm running is a complete Infinity Reference

I have 4 tweets, four 6.5's, two 5.25's, two 4's, two 3.25's, two 6x8's
three 12'' 1230's and if I feel like really tuning, I have two 10'' 1030's

I'm looking for 3 respectful 4chn's ex alpine mrv 240's , and preferably 3 mono's something like my mrd-m300! I already have a couple amps, but I have no desire to mix and match, I want them all the same for show purposes!
thx andrew

Andrew, that sounds like quite the project there? Any idea on how hard it is going to be to tune this all properly? Not that it cannot be done, but consider stepping back from the amount of gear you are trying to install. To me at least it looks like you have found the recipe for disaster. I would go at it a different way personally but if it is the way you want to go, that is what counts. What vehicle is this all going into? Where are the speakers going to be located?

Yeah that's a whole lotta speakers and it sounds like an imaging nightmare. Like ^^^^ said, what is it going into and what are you designing it for?

this is the setup im considering going with in my project ford probe, yeah I understand the tuning nightmare, I've done a similar project before that incorrporated 4 tweets, two 4's, two 5.25's, two 6.5's and four 8'' subs.
It's definetly not an easy thing to tune but I know it can be done and it can sound absolutly beautiful.

MR2NR what direction would take it then? the KISS rule? just stick with say tweet, 6.5's and 12''s? I dunno I'm looking for a complicated setup that produce a really smooth SQ!

thx andrew

Personnaly I would go with a 8" or 10", a 4" and a tweet. then a substage. keeps it simple, still looks badass when installed cleanly and sounds good.

I much prefer the KISS approach. A nice 2 or 3-way setup in front and a sub/s. You'll have to decide whether you wish your car to have rear fill but I'm not a big fan of it in most cases. Add to it a healthy dose of power and you're set.
You don't need loads of drivers in the car to get great sound (and in most cases less is more).

I looked into the rear fill, I looked at running a couple 12's with 6x9's

like i said if you wante dot be fussy i woudl run what i stated.

for subs i would run whatever you liked i guess

rear fill i might run but just off deck power so it is low and not overbearing but you can still please the rear passengers.

With a front stage setup like i put thoguh I woudl gurantee you owuldnt be able ot tell then the rear fill was unhooked or hooked up.

I knwo i cant with justa 6.5comp set.
