decision help

I need help deciding which amp to buy to push my 5x7's, pioneer something or other 3 way style speakers, I think they are rated for 200w or so but not totally sure.

eBay: Sony Xplod 4 channel 600 watt Mosfet amplifier (item 9726671812 end time May-24-06 12:54:26 PDT)

or

eBay: Audiobahn 4Channel Amp Led Lights Great condition (item 9728023670 end time May-21-06 20:24:55 PDT)

the audiobahn amp I have a second chance offer to buy it out, and I am high bidder on the sony but I dont want to get in the situation of winning 2 auctions...so should i push on with the sony or go with the audiobahn

Re: decision help

they're rated for 200W peak, don't look at that look for the RMS number that matches your speakers at the right ohm load

Re: decision help

so I got the sony, spkrs are rated at 240w max and 4ohm impedence just fyi. I installed the amp and have the rear speakers hooked up and will be hooking the fronts as soon as i get another rca cable and some more spkr wire which brings me to my next question. When i have the radio on the amp powers up but when I switch to CD it shuts the amp off. Everything works great with the radio though. I am sure its just a wire on the deck itself that needs to be hooked up but I am not totally sure which one.

ROTFLMAO....this sound familiar.

You need to connect the remote wire to the other blue wire on the back of your radio.

and I have hooked it up to 2 different blue wires but no joy, I think there is one more back there which I am going to try when I get a chance to tear into the dash but I just dont feel like doing it right now.

I just went through the same thing on Corey's system a few months back...that explains the ROTFLMAO...I wasn't laughing at you cuz I did the same thing.

Uhm...hm...there should be 2 blue wires. One is the remote wire and the other is the antenna wire. The reason the amp only works with the antenna wire connected is b/c the radio is the only input that uses the antenna. Hm...You should be able to hook up to the other one and be good to go.
