 4 channel amp ???

I was supposed to be getting 2 PG 400.4 amps. One to push my 4 5" focals and one for my 4 tweets. Well that didn't work out (don’t deal with drug dealers) so im in the market for 2 new 4 channel amps I was just wondering what kind of amp would you guys recommend.

I ASSUME you have 4 4ohm mids and 4 4ohm tweets: get ONE four channel amp and run each channel at 2 ohms.

I did that before I had the 4 tweets on one channel and the 4 5's on another but that just didn't seem right I guess I can do that space is limited.

Audio art wow after coming on here I have heard so many different brands.(I didn't realize how many brands there where) Even in car stereo mags there isn't as many brands as iv heard on Carstereo.com And a lote of people are running brands I would never let my car even come within 5 feet of. Dual the new crap SONY or Rockford fosgate. I liked it when the was the few good companies all with good/true power like sound stream the old PG and Rockford fosgate now there is all these new companies and the good old ones are selling out to best buy. HMMMMM the good old days.

..... no no, wire them in parallel (using the correct caps/coils or a passive crossover) to get 2 ohms, then put each pair of tweeter/speaker onto its own channel.

this one should work nicly, probably for ur model speakers too. it might get a little expensive (for crossovers) but considering 2amps over its is out of the question, besides you could get one good quality amp like audio art and it will probably sound better then two amps and trying to use the high/low pass filters.
