 which Amp???

hello, please help. Installation will be in an x-tra cab toyota. I have 2 JBL 4" and 2 JBL 6.5 for mid and highs, and amp is a hifonics mercury 2x50. I just purchased for a good deal a mb quart 12" sub RWC 304 dual voice coil 160-300 watt, 2x4ohms, and an enclosed box. Now I'am needing an amp. Any ideas? any help would be appreciated. thanks

I would look for a 4 ch amp that can handle your mids and highs as well as push your sub. Your current JBL speakers can take some more power. How much $$ are you willing to invest in an amp. You see there are so many amps brands out there with a wide price range.

 amp

meanman, thanks for the reply. Are you saying I should use one amp to run everything? You see I already invested in the hifonics amp (3 yrs. ago but it has never been hooked up) and was hoping the amp for the sub would be my last investment for a while. 250 to 300$? Thanks, John

You could use the Hifonics for your smaller speakers, all Im saying is that you will be under powering them. JBL 4" are about 100 watts a pair & 6.5" are about 180 watts a pair. Hifonics, back in the day, was a real good amp but with all the new upgrades in speakers I dont think your Hifonics Mercury is going to maximiz the ability of your JBLs. When your smaller speakers are underpowered you will get distrotion and cracking sounds when you pump up the volume. Anyway if your looking for good amp to power your MB Quarts always remember there is no harm in getting an amp that is more than capable. Its worse to get an amp that is not capabable. If your going to run only one sub then you have the option of getting a 1 channel amp (mono) or a 2 channel amp that you can bridge.
