Which Amp???

Ok I am looking at getting a 5 channel amp to replace the factory one in my Vert. Here are some of the amps I am looking at:

http://www.amazon.com/AC1800-5-ANARC...851557&sr=1-34

or

http://www.amazon.com/Performance-KA...852656&sr=1-14

or

http://www.amazon.com/Alpine-MRX-V60...852736&sr=1-11

or

http://www.amazon.com/Rockford-Fosga...0852760&sr=1-2

or

http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-5-C...0852805&sr=1-3

I know that these are all considered cheap amps but this is my price range so this is what I can get. So looking at these options or if you have something in this price range (hopefully more towards the mid point) which one would you get?

Really, the only one I would stay away from is the Planet Audio. The Polk may actually be a little too much amp for the factory speakers.

I personally would chose the Alpine as it has the smallest footprint and I know space is at a premium in a vert.

Are you planning on replacing any speakers? I don't know how many watts the factory sub can handle.....

I will be replacing the SUB with a Sony XPlode that I pulled out of my old car. It is a 4ohm sub rated at 300w RMS and 1100w peak. I will eventually replace the other factory speakers, but that will probably not happen until the end of the summer.

The Kenwood would amp would be a good match to your sub and be a good amount of power for the factory speakers, but the Polk would give you more power to work with later when you replace the speakers. I'd look at those two.
