Post Advice for 4-ch amp to match Hertz DSK 165's in Innova

Hi,

I have an Innova with 2 pairs of Hertz DSK 165 Components in the front and back. I'm using the existing OEM head unit. My wife and kids typically use the car and they're not very discerning about the sound quality.

I took it for a long drive recently, and i really felt that the sound needs to be improved. I'm thinking of adding an amplifier, which can probably help drive the components better. I don't want to change the HU just now so looking for a budget amp that takes in Speaker-level input. I'm looking for cleaner sound (SQ) and a warm sound, doesn't need to be too bright.

These are the following amps that i have shortlisted, in order of preference:
1. Alpine MRP-F300 50x4
2. Kenwood 8405 60x4
3. Pioneer GM-6500F 60x4
4. Infinity Reference 475a 75x4
5. Hertz EP4 (recommended by the installer, but i suspect it may be too bright)

Any advice on whether these would work well with the speakers/car/HU combination?

Thanks.

Each amp will add it's own flavour to the sound. So listen to as many you can and let your ears be the judge.

Understood. I'm going to try and find a shop that can let me demo these. But in the absence of that, are there general impressions people have about these amps?

Also, does anyone have recent prices for these amps?

Thanks.
