    5 Channel Amps

    Are these worth 2 shakes or should I look at a 4 channel and a sub amp?

    I used to love the Memphis belle which was a 5ch amp.

    As always, it depends on build quality. The biggest drawback is that often you can't find a 5 channel with a large enough sub output to match the wants of the user. Massive/American Bass/MTX all basically make the same amp (same board) with slightly different components on them. If looking at the Massive Audio option, the NX5 is a solid amp that meets/exceeds rated power.

    We've used these with very good results CMK.

    I have two separate amps, it's nice to be able to put the sub amp back near the sub box, and keep the 4-ch amp up closer to the head unit. Just my $0.02.

    Power levels desired and pocket book dictate 5ch or 4ch/sub amp.
    If your power levels desired are modest, def go 5ch.
    If you want big power, go the other route.

    Like Chuck said, the NX5 is a sweet option.

    I have the B2 800w mono amp for the subs, it's a great little amp, amazingly small and easy to find space to mount.

    I'm partial to my big Belle, but I've used 5 channels from Infiniti and 6 and 8 channels from a/d/s/ with great results as well. A lot of "5 Channels" are 6 channels with one pair bridged. However the Belle is essentially 2 amp boards (a 4 channel and a monoblock) in one heatsink.

    Thanks for the info. I ended up picking up a Kenwood 5 channel. I've had good luck with the Kenwood in the car and it was cheap.

    Now I need to find something to replace the burning pile of shit that is a Clarion NX501 head unit.

    Also, who has a recommendation on a sub box and sub to go behind the rear seat of a Crew Cab Super Duty? I am entirely too unmotivated to build my own box so unless someone wants to build it for me that is out of the question.

    I got a nice Atrend box through Chuck, pretty cheap and the build quality is actually pretty nice.

    Here's a bazooka style enclosure I built for a 2000 F350 crew cab (behind the seat). Works well and performs equally well with the lil 8" in there.
