    Default Help picking out an amp

    So I have a set of db6501s and I was thinking of getting db651s. So I was thinking of upgrading my 651s to 6501s just like the front and running them off an amp. I have no idea what to look for when it comes to powering the comps up with an amp. When I installed my 6501s I temporarily hooked them up to an amp but the tweets sounded horrible. Any suggestions on amps if I do both comps in front and rear? I limited roomw here I am mounting this amp also so it can't be huge and I would like to stay in the 150 or less range if possible.

    I was looking at this one but I don't know. I love the size of it though. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...ony+XM-4S.html

    That Sony amp is a waste of a perfectly good $139. Adding all kinds of component sets isn't a good idea either- if you absolutely have to have rear fill (high and mid frequencies playing behind you which usually confuses staging, imaging), use the coaxials you have already.

    Look for a 4 channel amp that does between 50-100 watts per channel and set your gain levels appropriately. If you outgrow having rear fill you can then utilize the extra 2 channels for bi-amping or bridging to front speakers. This would be a nice match:

    If you are on a strict budget, there are some good bang per buck amps on the market, but I would redirect the funds you intend to use for rear component speakers (not necessary or desired) into your amp budget instead.

    Hey thanks that's what I needed. I'll go with the coaxials.
