What head unit are using ? Are you planning on any sub ?

You can choose from Alpine, Clarion. Browse on SonicElectronix.com, Amazon.com or buy.com
Look for an amp that does 75x4 to 90x4RMS

Go for Infinity Reference 475a.
Around 140$ on Sonicelectronix and around 10k or something in India. Great VFM and SQ Amp.

it costs 164$ including shipping to Florida (my friend is located there). Also the efficiency is 85 db as per the spec. Any other suggestions .also international credit cards will attract ID verification fee of $7.90 + 2.20% of the order value

I would not recommend you to go on the figures.

Any other suggestion could include some Alpine Amps , Some Eclipse Amps or maybe even JL Audio.
They're all known to make good amps.

This amp is more or less finalized, unless the Panasonic comes back at the attractive sub $100 price.

Still have a month to decide.

BTW, is there a site which sells discontinued/phased out car stereo stuff? (not refurbished though).

OT - Please do not hijack the thread.

EDIT - Got these through SonicElectronix. Tempting, but no idea on availability.
