    Yeah that would be a nice amp. I just not willing to shell out $1,700 for an amp... That is a bit much for me to spend on an amp. But it is a sweet amp and it does exactly what i would want it to do!

    i believe those dimensions are a little off for the PG anyways,
    14.4" L x 7.1" W x 2.0" H
    NOT a bad sized amp

    So i need recommendations for a line out converter. I will be powering 3 amps total (2 for subs and 1 for component speakers) so it will need to be a powered one. Ive seen some 7 channel, 4 channel, and 2 channel converters.... Im pretty sure i need more than 4 channels, but which one?

    Thanks

    If you are going to run a DSP you should not need a line out converter? At least with the BitOne and BitTen you don't. I avoid them like the plague. Noise makers.

    generally that is the truth. The one my associates use has zero noise issues and has channel summation.
    IF he's going processor then yes no need for loc

    Ok so awesome! This will be my first install running multiple amps so i was not sure. But if all i need is a DSP then can you recommend one of those?

    Can you tell which one they use? I would like to check it out.

    These would me my recommendations. Some have better features than other, but they all make running an aftermarket deck no longer needed. I am partial to the Audison BitOne, but that is just because of what I am running. There are lots of good ones.

    I think JL audio clean sweep is another one although I have never used it.

    I didn't know you had tunes in your truck? I'm in the middle of gathering everything for mine.

    OP Why 2 sub amps? Do you already have your amp? 1 amp = less space

    I was looking at 1 amp to run everything, or at least both subs! However i found that the size of the amps was my problem. I am trying to mount the amp to the sub box and most of them were too large or too expensive. I found 2 kicker cx600.1 amps. They are very small, only $200 each, and their birth sheets say they are rated at over 650 RMS each! Im pretty sure that the 2 of these amps together are about the same size as most 5 channel amps.

    Also with how small they are i should be able to mount 2 amps and a DSP to the amp rack, and then the 4 channel amp will go under the seat.

    Ok so the cheapest link you posted was $600. For that i could buy a headunit and eliminate the need for a DSP. And who the hell buys a $1000 DSP for a daily driver? Either you are entering into competitions or you have more money than sense!
