Amp for RAQ Radio

What would be a good amp to use with the factory RAQ radio? I have Sony X-Plods in the rear doors and will be putting the Kicker upgrades in the front door and dash. I do not plan on putting in a sub. Just looking for an amp to upgrade the sound...nothing fancy.

Re: Amp for RAQ Radio

What kind of Jeep?

Do you have a factory amp?

Are you looking to power all 6 speakers (I would only do the front 4)?

What's your budget?

Re: Amp for RAQ Radio

Gotcha. Well, if I were going for a simple 4 channel amp upgrade to power the front stage, I'd go with the Sony XM-4S; link.

Search around, you should be able to get it around 100 bucks.

I like it because you can fit it where the factory amplifier goes (behind the driver-side rear quarter panel), or you can tuck it behind the passenger-side rear quarter panel. It's literally the size of a large hand... makes for such a clean, factory-looking, install.

Re: Amp for RAQ Radio

No problem. Just browse around some of the popular car electronics retailers for something around 50 watts per channel.

Start with www.sonicelectronix.com - they seem to always have some of the best prices.

You should only be around 100-130 bucks, shipped.
