And the amps I'll be using are in the OP...

  • Focal FPS 4160 amp or an alternative amp (drives doors)
  • Focal K2 Power 165 KR2 6.5" speakers (front doors and tweets to dash)
  • Focal K2 Power 165 KRC 6.5" coax speakers (rear doors for fill)
  • Alpine MRP M500 amp (drives sub)
  • Alpine SBR-S83V 8" sub and factory-made box
But I really don't want to spend a grand on the Focal amp, even though I love it. I'm seriously considering alternatives in the $400-600 range for a 4-channel AB amp.

Awesome HU. Wonder if it plays FLAC too? I'll try to check it out.
Thanks! Crutchfield has a good amount of specs on their site for it:

It just lists MP3, WMA, WAV, and AAC?
