concealed bluetooth compatible amplifier

Any recommendations on a new amplifier that has bluetooth connectivity for iphone? I want to be able to conceal it behind a new centre console plate I am building. Previous stereo was stolen and centre console was smashed
thanks

Re: concealed bluetooth compatible amplifier

I bought this Kicker bluetooth receiver and have a separate amp in the back of the car to power it.

This is an amplifier, but it's only 50W @2ohms and I needed more power than that. They also have a 100W version, but I didn't want to spend the extra and still not have the power I wanted.

Re: concealed bluetooth compatible amplifier

Because I used the RCA outputs to send audio to my separate amplifer, it was very easy. There's Constant 12v+, Ignition 12v+, ground, and if you run another amp, there's a remote out to signal your amplifier. It has wiring for direct speaker connections also (if you're not going to use RCAs to another amp), but like I said, unless you're running stock or low-power speakers, then you probably want more than the power output this BT receiver has.
I've only had two problems with it and I believe they're vehicle induced. I have a switch pop when I turn the car on and off, and I had alternator whine. I've not tried to fix the switch pop yet (I'll do that over the winter), but the alternator whine was fixed with a B15N Boss noise suppressor.
Here's the link to the other and you can click on the 100W one.

Had I not already had my more powerful amp with built-in crossover I would have considered the 100W one because it has more power output and a built-in crossover which could be nice, but the price jumps up a lot for that.
