Upgrading Audio System

Anyone have any recommendation for an Amp for my 2008 JK? The stereo I am considering is a Pioneer AVH-2300DVD. I already upgraded the speakers to Kickers and I have a subwoofer ready to hook up. Lots of amps out there...looking for one that won't make my ass pucker with the price!

kenszel is talking bout the Alpine PDX-5 and it will fit under the steering column where the factory amp would go if you had the Infinity system.

That would be nice! Any pics and do you need custom mounting brackets?

How much water does the inside of your JK see? You might want to look into a Marine grade amp. We could help point you in the right direction if you would like...

from my expierence soundstream amps are absolutely awesome, i've run mine hard for about 9 hour straight on a road trip and didn't even phase it, also i've never used them but i hear the memphis amps are prettty sweet for the price, i do believe i am going the memphis route on my jeep, not to mention they aren't that big so should be easy to locate anywhere
