Hey guys. I need a 4 channel amp that can put out 120 watt RMS @ 3 ohm. I'd assume i'd be needing a 2 ohm amp, 125 watt per channel but unsure what's out there. I'd like to keep the cost lower, not looking to compete but i don't want something that i'll need to replace sooner than later. I run a Kenwood DNX995S headunit, two MMATS Procast 12" and a MMATS 1400 watt amp. I'll link to my speakers below in case my assumptions are off or i can get away with something with less and or need more power than i figured. Thanks!

Pretty much any 600.4 amplifier I would assume would work fine. 

Here's one

But there's a whole bunch out there from different brands. Just look around on the internet and see what you find

I don't know anything about brands other than the big names, there lies my problem lol

Did you have a particular budget in mind? Or just curious what would work? 

B2 has that one I sent you that's supposed to be good

DS18 has a cheapo that will work https://skyhighcaraudio.com/candy-x4b-compact-full-range-class-d-4-channel-amplifier-1600-watts/

Ampere, I've heard nothing but good things https://www.down4soundshop.com/ampere-audio-aa-150-4/

Cerwin Vega has one, and they've been around forever https://www.down4soundshop.com/cerwin-vega-mobile-vcu84-600w-rms-4-channel-full-range-mini-amplifier/

Incriminator is good https://www.down4soundshop.com/ia3-4-4-channel-amplifier/

Only heard good things about the Rockford Fosgate 4 channel amps  https://www.crutchfield.com/p_575P600X4/Rockford-Fosgate-Punch-P600X4.html?awcr=76828390441408&awdv=m&awkw=rockford+fosgate+p600x4&awmt=e&awnw=o&awat=&awug=43563&msclkid=476faf4e25c91295f855f01b55e73e2a

And if you're eyeing another brand, just come back to the forum and ask. 9 times out of 10, someone here has had experience with them. 

Hope you find what you're looking for

I see the sky-high ds18 is $160. That seems pretty low price wise. What does it lack and or not live up to? I'm looking for something lower priced that will drive the speakers to their full potential (sounding better than off the HU) and not have it break up at higher volumes. I'm not an audiophile by any means. The subs overpower my speakers and i'd like see what amplified speakers are like. I've only ever ran subs and HU powered speakers. I'd lie to try and keep it under $300 to be honest. Though running the wires will be the daunting part, if I find i don't like the "cheaper " amp I can always sell it and install another fast.

If I had to guess, the DS18 is so cheap because it probably lacks build quality and durability, and probably does right at, or just under RMS.

That B2 Audio one is supposed to be good for quality, and I've heard Cerwin Vega subs, house speakers, and their big party type speakers,  and they've always over delivered... granted, I've never been around any of their amplifiers. 

If you can shell out the little extra and get that Rockford Fosgate, I think that would be your best bet in my opinion as far as the "budget amplifiers" go.
