Default need a new amp...

I am looking for a replacement amp for a custom install in my Wife's 454SS pickup. The amp that went bad is a Clarion AAP4140 that is rated for 160 watts, it is driving 4 Kenwood KFC-466C 6x9 speakers. This amp has to be 15 plus years old...
So I am looking for something with about the same power, what can you recommend?

4 6x9's.

ok, you want 4 channel amp.

you want to make sure the amp is CEA (Consumer Electronics Association) approved.

75 RMS watts per channel is more than enough power (x4)

You don't have to break the bank.





You can find it on ebay for $75;( free shipping) and/or amazon for around the same price

Right now it's the best amp dollar for dollar.

the new model came out; so this one is on clearance.
Jensen Power 760 | eBay

I don't have any personally; and I dont' work for anyone.

That Jensen is the best dollar for dollar.

Here is almost every 4 channel 4 channel amp on the market; that is CEA certified; from lowest to highest.

(Sort Price: Lowest First) 4-Channel Amplifiers (CEA-2006 Compliant: Yes) | Car Amplifiers | Car Audio | Car Audio, Video & GPS at Sonic Electronix

you can find it 20% cheaper on ebay/amazon.

Compare dollar for dollar; and RMS (watts) to RMS

The Jensen is 75x4, which is pretty friggen good

peace
