I have removed the bose system from my corvette. I am in the process of ordering SS products to deaden the inside and get the most out of my system. I am installing a Kenwood DNX-8120 amp, have purchased the Alpine PDX 1.600 for my sub(s) (still to be selected) and have purchased the HAT Clarus 61-2 components for my doors. I am looking for amp suggestions to get the most out of this setup. My range is $250-450 for the amp.

Thanks in advance!

For the subwoofer or the door speaker's
For the door components. I have seen some threads indicate that the PDX amps are not "warm enough" to be great component amps... but I'm open to other opinions as I love their style and small footprint (and heat)

An amp is an amp is an amp, man! Until you play with tubes of course. If you want "warm", consider going with a tube or tube-hybrid amp. I was pleased with the Planet Audio Zed-built ones.

Honestly, who here believes they have the ears to hear the difference in a car? Hands? Anyone?

You are NOT listening to him. Why?


You just recommended some of the crappiest amps out of nowhere. Did you even look to see what drivers he already has? HAT. That's serious stuff.

OP, if I were in your shoes I'd do the PDX matching, but that's because I can't hear the difference in an amp provided they aren't clipping or inducing distortion. YMMV! Most good to excellent amps will not distort the signal to a point where you can tell a difference, IMO. And PDX amps are definitely GOOD.
