    Default Amp suggestions for MMC6500 and MMC525

    I have recently purchased a set of MMC6500 components and MMC525 coaxials to replace the factory speakers in my '02 Silverado ext cab. If anyone can give me an idea on an amp to power these it would be appreciated. I'm looking for a nice sounding 4 channel amp.

    The last amp I purchased was back in my college days and thats been 8 years now. The head unit I'll be driving them with is an Alpine 9815 which has a pretty nice crossover built in.

    Thanks,

    Darren

    Yeah, I've looked at that and it does seem to be a good fit but I'd like more options. I really don't need all the crossover bells and whistles of that amp. Alpine is what I was looking at but I'm not that familiar with them. Other brands would be fine also I'm just not sure who makes quality amps these days.

    Thanks

    Basic amp with plenty of grunt for $300.

    That ARC amp looks pretty nice. I'm not familiar with them though. Are they top of the line when it comes to SQ.

    Carpower Vortex 4/400, but it is probably hard to get in the us. But their amps tend to be more aggressive for kicks and so on... so perfect for me in my case listening to electro and goa house alot.

    Default What do you guys think?

    Hey I'm looking at getting an Alpine MRV-F540. I've go the opportunity to pick up a gently used one for $200. Any experience here with this amp? It looks to me that it would provide plenty of power to these speakers. Thanks for all the feedback.
