Hiya Lisa,

Some of the best Amps i have run and i would recommend to anyone without thinking twice, would be the, the Genesis Amps.

Try a Genesis 5 Channel Amp it is a Seriously great piece of kit.

If i can help further feel free to drop me a mail.

Regards,
AK

i've allways used Jackson/XS Audio or Kicker.

I used to install ICE for a living, not just head units, Complete, from the cabling upwards.

Sounds good, will have to look into it!! the only problem I have at the mo is that when I turn the sound up mega loud....I get a funny wiggle from the rear end (of the car!)...is the sound affecting something??

You will probobly find that the huge current draw of an amp pumping out huge amounts onf bass is having an effect on the HICAS computer.

have heard of other Skylines with HICAS doing this aswell, so you are not alone.

I believe that the only way to stop this is to Turn it down - Nissan pspoilsports!

The vibe VP4 is a very good amp as for what it kicks out and being digital it doesn't draw as much as most other amps do. Nice and slim aswell.

i like the directed stuff too. i have a pair of the competition 12s. from past experience though they dont perform as good as the genesis amps or pg. there not bad for the price of them though. my mate is sponsored by them and he only put them in cos he didnt have to pay much.

Genesis

Tiggs,
go into any genesis supplier or reputable car audio shop , ask him to crank up his best amp and a genesis amp for an hour. (his best amp should be the genesis!!). The best of the rest will still be warm / hot to touch, however the gensis will be roughly the same temp as it was before!!! Heat really does let most amps down, trust me on this as i work in electronics / comms , so go with the genesis. As for power drain, just get a second batt in the boot if you are that worried about it. Its not as much work or hassle as you might think.
