That's a tough ask, Wolfram Audio has a 250 x 4 for $300 preorder.

look at some rockford 2 channels on ebay. There have a few that fit the requirements.

My zapco st-204D sq is 185x4 @ 4 or 550 x2 @ 4.

If you wanna do a bridged 4 channel, you have tons of options.

Or dual Zapco dc500.1 monos. Those are full range class a/b amps and do 350 [email protected]/[email protected]

I was running a Cadence TXA6004 for the last 11 years. Last winter a mouse peed on it and blew it up. I loved that amp. I'm trying to see if Cadence will do anything for me

If not, thanks for the recommendations guys !

11 years of using a $200 amp is pretty solid. I doubt they will help but Cadence is still making amplifiers. Ebay and amazon has them. Theres many good choices now for cheap.

I like the current kenwood excelons for the price but this is a good choice too

Maybe match your cdt

https://www.ebay.com/itm/CDT-Audio-A...MAAOSw5xtc3ifM

These are great deals now

https://www.ebay.com/itm/INFINITY-KA...cAAOSwxblbQ21y

or NVX

I'm running a cdt eurosport 4 way.

Thanks for the response guys.

Question, I noticed that first amp there is listed as mono when bridged??? Is that true of most amps?

Also most of those amps are class D. I thought any good sound quality amp was always AB, no?
