I doubt you'll be able to find a 5 channel amp, brand new, for 300.00 in a retail store. That Alpine is from a few years ago. I know ebay has a few Kickers that are great amps that you may want to check out. There's a kx 700.5, an excellent 5 channel amp currently for $241 cdn. Here's the link;

I have the same suggestion. Kicker will give you nice power. Best deal. Go for that, cause you may not find any better bang for the buck. Alpines are usually overrated in terms of power.

most 5 channels are quite expensive however some of our vendors sometime can play a little with pricing. So do not count out a new piece as it has warranty so might be worth the extra $50-150.

always give the vendors a call first...you'd be surprised what they can do sometimes. Check the for sale section, great deals there sometimes...last year I got a 1200 watt Kicker amp for 400.00 Brand spanking new....retails for 1300.00 no kidding, I checked. Ended up selling it for 700.00...sweet!

I have a nice 5 channel PG Saphire, it's 5 1.0x in one chassis.

I ran two front componenet, rear component and one 12 L5 and it sounded great!

Only bad part is the sub doesn't have an LPL on it.
