Use a 2 channel amp with about half the max power of your speakers (eg 400 watt speakers use 200 watt amp) personally i'd say stick with vibe here's a link to save you time

I know this is a very broad statement, but your budget will allow for what you buy. You will want a nice 2 channel 50 watt rms amp min. 50 watts is a lot of power for those speakers and you will be happy. I would recommend if your budget allowed a nice kenwood, Alpine, Diamond Audio or MB quart. Just make sure whatever you buy that it is a low noise A/B class amp. Nothing to special.

Take care and have fun!!

I'm looking for an amp for four 6x9" kickers CS. Can you help me? Thanks


What is the power rating of each speaker? The impedance figure and how you intend to connect them are needed to correctly specify an amplifier

I have 2 pioneer 6x9 400w, pioneer GM 6500f 760w amp and a kenwood KFC W1012 sub, how d i get the best sound from these?


pioneer gm 6500 is a 4 ch amp rated at 60w-4 way to small of an amp to run your sub. UNDER-POWERING your sub is more likely to damage spkr than over-powering. my advice,get mono-block to run sub

What kind of amp do i need for 2 kicker ds6930 140 watts peak and 2 ks6930 6x9 watts peak 150 and 3 Kicker KS350 3-1/2 40 watts each peak


600 Watt to 1000 Watt 4 CHANNEL AMP for the four 6X9's and a less powerfull 4 Channel amp thats at least 200Watts to 400Watts peak for the 3 3-1/2 kicker speakers. Because if you try to connect the 3 3-1/2 speakers to only 1 4 channel amp that the 6X9 speakers are on you risk of overheating the amp and blowing the speakers too!!!

You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

I cant figure this out about my headrest lcds HELP


Let me guess, you have a pioneerr dvd headunit a video amplifier and 2 headrest correct.
Now connect from V/A in at the headunit to V/A out at the video amp. Connect V/A out put from #1 headrest to #1 V/A in put at the amp. And V/A out put from #2 headrest to #2 V/A in put at the amp.

Can you power 2-10" subs and 2-6x9 speakers with this amp?


You could but the only problem is even if you ran the speakers in parallel, meaning + to + and - to -, the best power you would get out of the amp is 230 watts per channel. Would probably make your 6x9 sound good but not enough to push your 10's.

Powering 4 6x9 speakers, need amp


Hi firstof all your deck isnt really putting out 52 watts x4 more like 17-22w rmsx4 ,companies like to throw out some crazy numbers it seems. If your into Kenwood try out a KAC-8404 4-channel on the mids/highs that will put 50 w x4 rms at 4 ohms or if you wanna go a lil louder try the kenwood x600f that will throw 100w rms on each 6x9 at 4 ohms no problem. My system is very similar to yours but running 4 pioneer 5x7's in all the doors and powering it with the 8404 its loud and clean ,fan cooled and no problems at all. My subs are a pair of 15's soundstream t-4's powered by an Alphasonik pma2500a its throwing 800w rms on each sub running in stereo at 2 ohms.It can drown out the mids if i set it that way but my mids /highs cant take as much power as your kenwoods can or else id step up to the x600f too.

Can I use a 2 ohm impedance 6x9 speaker directly from my cars headunit?


Doubtful - the factory head unit isn't meant for 2-ohm operation and will stand a chance of damage.

Annoying thump from two 15" kicker comps powered by a lanzar vibe 266 amp


It sounds like it may be oscillating. This can be caused by a broken ground in the signal line. You need to check the RCA shield on the head unit.You'll need an ohm meter. The following page has more details. If the head unit isn't damaged, the shield ground could be open in the amplifier.
