the above link shows a md21. will this amp be ok to run 4-6.5's 4-tweeters and 2 bullet horns. im currently running it all on my avh-p4200 and it sounds great until the bass drops. will this amp be alot better and be able to keep up with the bass. i dont really wanna drop alot of money on a frontstage amp. i found this amp pretty cheap and it will match up nicely to this md1d that im getting.

I'm gonna assume you're using 2 passive crossovers. Each one going to (2) 6.5's (2) tweets and (1) bullet horn.
Thats way too much speaker for 15-18 RMS watts to move properly.

First thing I would do is check what your final impedance is going to be @ the amplifier. You can do this with a multimeter.

Let me know what impedance (ohms) you end up with and I can help you find an amp that will compliment your setup nicely. Also, what speakers are you using or what is their power handling? (watts rms)

I don't know if you already have a subwoofer in the car but when you add an amp you are going to need to buy an amp kit which has power and ground cable, RCA interconnects, remote turn-on wire and of course speaker wire. :thumbsup:


Edit: Just saw your sig so ignore the last part

I would talk to boomsday about the md42 because it's a nicer amp and puts out more power.

With all of those tweets and speakers hooked up to one crossover your not going to have a 4 ohm load. IDK what its going to end up @ but your best bet is to check what impedance you are getting at the point of the crossover with a multimeter. It's really easy to do

75 watts will push those speakers and help with midbass response BUT I would try to get something that does around 150 watts so you have some headroom and don't clip.

i agree with you about the higher wattage more headroom :thumbsup:

thanks, for the info. and yeah i will be using a multimeter to check the final ohm load......on another note, i was just looking at the powerbass components http://www.powerbassusa.com/3xl-series-1 and the coaxials http://www.powerbassusa.com/autosound-series-drivers what your opinions?

I can't speak on how they sound because I haven't heard them but they look nice. I like that they have neo mags, swiveling tweets and are 3 ohms so you can get a little more juice outta your amp
