    How loud is loud enough?

    I am currently looking for a good multi-channel amp for my 6.5s in the front and my 5 1/4s in the back. They are Infinity all the way around and the stock HU power isn't cutting it. The amp I was looking at is 60 X 4 which is nice but do you think it will be loud enough?

    Depends on the speakers. You'll want to run them at their peak RMS for best sound.

    Depends on your headunit, your amplifier, your wires, and on the sensitivity of the speakers. I would recommend the JL Audio 300/4, this amps are underrated and are very good in quality.

    That's the exact amp I have running my in-cabin speakers. :-D I like it a lot.

    A lot of people I know like PPI, Xtant, and US Amps for brands of 4-channel amps. You want one that can power your speakers well, but also one that is clean and won't clip. Also, make sure the stated power is in RMS, as was previously mentioned. ^

    ^^^agreed, what they said.

    I was running a sony HU (no amp) 40W rms x4 into polk speakers in my old Cutlass Supreme, and it was plenty.
    If you use quality stuff, 60W should be plenty to give you some bass, and responsive sound. Is not going to be knock down buildings, make people loose conciosness<sp?> type of loud, but for you it will sound loud enough.
