I am trying buy a amp for my car, but I want to buy the right one. I want it to mainly work for all my speakers not just my sub woofers.?

These are my specification

Subwoofer: 12-inch dual voice coil subwoofer with 1200 Watts peak power handling

Speakers (front): Nominal power: 80W
Maximum power: 160W
Sensitivity: 92.5dB

Speakers (back): Handles up to 300W peak power

100W Nominal
40Hz–20kHz frequency response

Accurately produces a wide range of

4 ohms impedance

If you need more detail ask or reply

That's not much info on the sub — 1200w peak just tells us its actual (rms) power handling is a lot less. Probably no more than 600, could be as low as 200 or 300. Also, dual voice coils isn't enough info. They are probably dual 2 or dual 4 but could be something else. Voice coil impedance also has an effect on your choice of amp.

4 speakers 80-100w rms (assuming all 4 ohms) will match up well with a lot of amps.

If you want to do this with a single amp your best option will be a 5 ch.

You'd want to look for something that's 75-100w rms x 4 at 4 ohms on the 4 channel section and 300-500w rms on the subwoofer channel.

The shortcoming for most 5 ch's is lack of subwoofer power, but there should be something that will work well for you.

Go to a stereo shop and look at 5 channel amps on display with speakers you can listen to and decide whether you like it or not. Those kilowatt numbers may seem good and offer a brag to conversation, but try, when you audition different set-ups, to determine what amount of power you can actually use in comfort.

So the way I have my system hooked up is the Rca's run to a crossover which separates the high, mid, and lows and has outputs for all 3 of them, so then I run the low channel to my subwoofer amp then I run my mids to my mid amp, it's best not to hook your subwoofer and speakers on the same amp, because your sub will start playing some words in them and I've blown about 4 subs because of that, after I got a crossover and another amp I've never blown another subwoofer, even the $40 crossover on Amazon will work, that's what I started with. But I would say 800-1000watt amp for sub and 400-800watt for speakers just don't turn up all the way of you go with one like an 800 watt, that's just my recommendation.
