The new JL 500/5 V2 should be out soon, thats a real nice amp. Arc Audio (my current choice) also makes one but its pricey and hard to find. Its the XXK-5150. I'd probably pick the JL over it though because I like the way its configured better as far as power output.

Audison has a 6 channel that is amazing.. two actually (lrx vrx) if you don't want to spend that kind of cash, US amps 5600x is one of the more powerfull 5 channels I have seen.

The arc mentioned by t22a80 would be a quality amp as well.

Memphis belle is another great one.

There is nothing wrong with a 5 channel if it suits your needs. How much power are you looking for? what are you looking to do?

The JL one is nice because its "stepped" in power, as in the fronts get more than the rears.

Grunge is right, the Audisons are nice, I forgot about those.

And yes I like how the JL is stepped in power just as Grunge mentioned. This is what I meant by its configuration. It is 100wrms x 2 for the fronts, 25wrms x2 for the rear and 250wrms for the sub. The other nice thing is it is an A/B amp for the 4 channels and a class D for the sub channel. Its not a powerhouse amp but it should give plenty of power for a decent system. The only downfall with using a "all in one amp" is that if you wanted to upgrade down the road you would need to add another amp. Also, you typically pay more for 5 ch amps then you do regular ones.

Another great thing about 5 channel amps is using them active..

Running your tweets off of 2 channels, your mids off of 2 channels and either your subs or your rears mono of of the 5th channel.

yes i do this alot. i actually have two of the original xtant 3/5 channel amps in one vehicle. with xtants you had rear outputs that were already setup to be 3 db lower than the fronts no matter how you adjusted it. They were actually tied into the fronts and shared the same outputs.

I know it's old school but I run an A/D/S 6.25 in mine. I can run it in 4, 5, or 6 channel mode. Generally I run 4 Channel with an amp for the subs. In the Titan I'll run it 6 channel with an amp for the subs. It is CLEAN.

I would like to see an amp that can run 2 sets of comps active and push 1000 RMS mono. Yes, a bad *** 9 channel. And keeping it under 12" long would be nice too. ;) I had an Opti6200 back in the day and it was the ****. Though the internal jumpers and the fact the amp had to be upside down to wire did make the install a bit more work.
