      Question Amp for Polk Audio DB 6501

      Hi everyone!

      Posting for a friend.

      His installer suggested Sony XM-N1004 (https://www.sony.co.in/electronics/c...specifications). But I think this amp might not be able deliver enough power.

      Can you please suggest an amp for driving Amp for Polk Audio DB 6501 Component speakers?

      Thanks in advance.

      What is his budget ? Does he have just these components or have a subwoofer which also needs to be driven ?

      circuits ... Added to the above statement, is he looking at a SQ setup? Also, what kind of genre he listens to? Take these four into contention to decide. The Sony Amp is just another amp and not a SQ amp.

      His budget is 10k. And, no, he doesn't have a subwoofer at the moment. A future proof amp would be better choice though.

      High SQ is not his thing, from my understanding. An above average setup would be just fine. He listens to typical Bollywood + some Indian regional music.

      For 10K you can get some basic speakers. Any car shop should be able to help you. You can get typical ones - Sony, Pioneer and the likes or stick on with the mentioned model of Polk. For entry level ones, the Sony amp that was listed is good. I don't suggest/recommend future proofing as it would turn out to be a costly affair.

      A couple of decent amps for the budget would be:

      1) Infinity Primus

      2) Focal Performance

      3) Prioneer GMA-6704

      Just for info, I've been using Sony Xm-n1004 for more than a year. I'm pretty satisfied with it & for the price it is a good amp.
