I just bought some SR6500's and an SR124-DVC and now I'm looking for amps to power them. I was originally going to go with the Hertz MLK 165's or the Morel Dotech's but I came across a great deal on the Polk stuff and could not resist.
I was going to purchase 2 ARC amps for the Hertz stuff, a 300.4 bridged to 350rms x 2 and an 300.2 bridged to 700x1, now I don't believe either of those will work for the polk stuff. the 300.4 is rated at 90rms x4, bi-amped that might work but am I correct in thinking that the mid drivers can take a little more than that bi-amped? Bridged is not an option, 350x2 is WAY too much I think.
The 300.2 will not work for the sub because its bridged rating is at 4 ohms, the 300.4 might work for the sub though, 350x2 @4 homs works for this sub right? The 300.2 makes 180x2 so that might work for the sr6500's but I could not run bi-amped.............
I've also looked at the polk amps and Audison amps, I'm leaning towards the Audison, they have some really great configurations but so far I've had a really hard time finding them for sale or they are just too expensive.
My budget is $400 to $600 for amps.
I'm really new to all this stuff so any input would be greatly appreciated.
PS. I thought I would also share my thoughts on installation; my car is a Chrysler 300 srt8, it currently has a factory Kicker stereo system which Iím going to completely remove when I put in the Polk stuff. I have door spots that fit 6x9ís and 3 speaker holes in the dash at the front of the windshield that fit 3.5 inch speakers. I would love to do a kick panel installation but I donít know if I have to know how and Iíve not found any kits for this kind of install. Another reason I would like to do the kick panel install is because then I would still have the spots in the doors for more midbass, maybe a 7 or 8 inch driver if I want or need it.
Iím also considering trying to embark on a custom box to fit above/behind the wheel well like the factory kicker sub.
Thanks in advance!
