    Default Car audio Amp help

    I just purchased a new truck and it came with a nice little system but no amp. I plan on just using one amp, can anyone please recommend a decent one that would go good with what I have? I also want to know that if I decide to switch out my sub later would I be able to use the recommended amp for the 4 regular speakers until I get a new sub or would that be too much power and ruin them? Thanks!

    There are plenty of 5 channel amps in the market ;

    PA D5000.5 will run everything you throw at it and it is a compact system. It does costs a bit more than normal amps.

    Just ordered a PA D5000.5 from internet at $308.xx - new not refurbished. Was looking for one quality amp for my 4 speakers and a sub that's going on the boat and the Polk seemed to be just the ticket. Shop around. I'd say where I'm getting it from but due to my low "post-count", don't want to raise a red flag.

    Make sure its from an authorized dealer. If it aint or its someplace like Ebay, youre not gonna get much of a warranty with it and no guarantee its not brand spankin' new.

    Yes, authorized dealers only - unless you like to gamble.

    You must have seen very many. I've owned several and they've all worked just fine. Never had a problem out of any of them.
