Question about aftermarket Car Amplifiers & Subwoofer

Hi SD'er

I'm not sure which room is appropriate to post this question. But anyway, here it is:

I have a 2014 Elantra GT with Nav. I already switched out the factory speakers and put in 2 new pairs:
  1. Infinity Reference 6032cf 6.5-Inch 180-Watt 2-ways speaker [amazon.com]
  2. Polk Audio DB651s Slim-Mount 6.5-Inch Coaxial Speakers [amazon.com]

But the factory head unit can't really power these 2 new pairs of speaker efficiently. So i'm looking to put in a 4 channels amps to run these speakers and also a Subwoofer.

I went to a local car stereo shop in my area, and the guy is offering these options:
  1. RE Audio SA 50.4 (4Ch 600w / Full Digital Car Amplifier) [reaudio.com] - $220 include installation & kits
  2. Avionixx CXA 640 [advancedcarstereo.com] - $200 include installation & kits

I couldn't find much infomation on these 2 amps and not sure which one I should go with. Does anyone have any idea? Is that a good price? Any other suggestion?

Thanks so much

I would price shop on http://www.crutchfield.com/m_100/...fiers.html you will likely get a much better amp from a name that is known and respected. I can't say the 2 brands you were offered are bad but they are most likely more of the no name brand generic amps that are marginal quality. The crutchfield people know their stuff too so call up and ask questions if you want.

You bought name brand speakers that look to be decent so you don't want to probably have a crap amp in the middle more than likely.

Cool thanks LiquidRetro, I followed your advice and went to Crutchfield to look for something else, I decided to get the Alpine MRV-F300 (they sell it for $200). So i called up the shop that gave me those 2 quotes and after a while of bargaining, they agree to sell & include complete installation with that Alpine MRV-F300 for only $230 (only $10 more), and it's a much better choice based on the review of that amp.

Thanks bounce
