I need an amp.
I've been doing some searching for audio equipment. So im building some speakers now. Here they are,
8ohm 5inch 20w
I have two of those and one of these.
4ohm 8inch 40w
Now I don't have the name of the brand for any of them so I can only give that much information. Anyway I need to find an amp that works with them that's under 80 bucks or so(Doesn't actually have to be under but if I can).
Thanks guys for your very much loved wisdom. If any.

are you thinking about putting these in a car? or throwing them in cases and using them as a home theater/monitor system.

You could just hook those up to a cheap car stereo.

I was thinking about using the large one as a subwoofer.
Edit: I found more of the large ones

make a box to host the speakers, wire them up, get something like this http://www.fullcompass.com/product/4...O3DBoCrSnw_wcB

you could just use a cheap home theater amp with a max output of 250-300 watts. reason i say that is due to your speakers impedance ratings, too much or not enough resistance can blow an amp.
when making the box for the sub, i've found that making the port diameter equal to the center cone cover is a good way to go. then you're not putting too much stress on the speaker while getting a good amount of bass output.
if you're gonna make monitors, get a tweeter in and you can make a highpass filter with a capacitor. if you want the details on that, let me know.

i remember from some of my engineering courses about building an amp. i can't exactly remember the extreme details but this is a great video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1UagNkcxi4
not saying you have to do it, just sayin that it'd be a fun DIY project.
