I recently replaced all 4 of my factory speakers with Alpine S series 2 way speakers 240 watts peak, 80 RMS, 4 ohms. They play good with the JVC head unit at 20RMS X 4. but i know they can play louder without distortion if i get an amp.
I called BestBuy and the GeekSquad rep, suggested i should get the Rockford Fosgate Punch P400-4.
which is a 4 channel amp
50 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms
if i get this amp, would it be a great buy or i need more powerful amp to get the full clear sound that my speaker really need?
:confused:

It will probably be rated closer to 70w X 4 rms on the birthsheet, so it would be a good choice imo
if your serious about a 4 channel, id suggest componet speakers as there a much cleaner sound. but yes that amp will work but you can find it cheaper than what best buy is sellinng for im sure

Isn't the P400-4 discontinued? I can't find it on BB's site either...weird that they would recommend an amp they don't sell.

In any case, I've got a brand newInfinity 475a that's still in the factory plastic - I was going to put it up on eBay this week but I'd rather give a good deal to a Trailvoy member. I would sell it for $125 shipped, which is half of Amazon's price and cheaper than any new ones on eBay...also it's 75Wx4. PM me if you're interested.

Don't forget to factor in the Power and ground wire, inline fuse, patch cables, and speaker wire.

Well thanks to everyone for their time to answer my questions. I will look at my options and the quality of the amp and my budget and choose the right amplifier.
