    Default Help with New Car AMP

    HI All

    So recently i put my old car sound back into my car (mid life crisis perhaps) anyway the amp was an old Starsound 600Watt (assuming RMS) 4 channel amp. I have had the power supply fixed which lasted 6 months so think its time for a brand new one.

    My question is what amp would be similar as all the ones i look at now are in the marketing range of 2000 to 4000 Watts and up? What would be the same as my current one? none of the websites i see show them with the RMS value.

    Any advice or direction would help.

    What setup are you trying to power?

    Fairly basic

    1 x 12" Kenwood Sub think it is a 600 Max Watt (Bridge connection) This is also around 15+ years old but still 100% (this one: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-6E9G2L...KFC-W3003.html)

    2 x 6" 230 Watt (40RMS) Pioneer speakers (these exact ones: https://www.takealot.com/pioneer-ts-...s/PLID34268408)

    Simple

    You would get away with something like this:

    https://www.autostyle.co.za/car-audi...amplifier.html


    Would just phone and find out if you can run the sub in bridged mode and the mids in single channel mode at the same time on this amp.

  6. Saying Thanks:
