    Looking to purchase an audio amplifier for some rear-mounted subs, without going over the edge. I don't need or want earth shaking booming, but would like to add some low end to my current set-up. Anybody use this Sony amplifier and have any experiences to pass on?

    Just from the specs, I would look for more wattage.

    55Wx2@4ohm or 70Wx2@2ohm isn't much for a pair of subs...

    Possibly, but like I said am not looking for teeth-rattling bass. I listen to more classical music in the car than anything, and just want the low end to be filled in. There won't be any large capacitors or super-gauge wiring, so am not concerned with drawing or producing huge amounts of power. Sound quality is more important than sound quantity.

    Well, IMO, go with more than you need. You can always turn the gains down on a larger wattage amp...
