My '06 Explorer has limited hidden room to "hide" an amp, and I need to find one that is relatively compact (particularly in height...2" or less), that will still pump out a respectable 4x75W RMS.

My old US Acoustics amp (USX-4085) is just too big.  I've been searching for a week now.  Any recommendations?

Not sure what your budget is, but have you considered running Xtant 1.1i mono blocks?   

I -love- mine.  Tiny footprint at 6.5"  x   5.81"  x  1.63"   They are ideal for hiding because they rarely get hot even after hours of play time.  The highly efficient class d design not only keeps heat low but also keeps current draw low - no need to upgrade that alternator.  The sound that competes with all but the smoothest class ab designs.  Compared to high end ab designs the sound is a touch bright, but the midrange detail and bass response leaves little to be desired.

These meet your height:
Audiobahn A6004T - 1 7/8" x 9 7/8" x 9 7/8" (This one meets all of your requirements, but they don't have the best reputation)
Sinfoni AMPLItude 50.4x - 434 x 187 x 40mm (This one is amazing, but doesn't fit too many's budget. And only 50w x 4, but I think you'll find that its 50w will sound like other's 100w in SPL)
These come close:
MTX Thunder564 - 13.9" x 9.75" x 2.1"
Clif Designs CD4.4LX - 16.5" x 10" x 2.1"
Crossfire VR804 - 9.3"W x 2.1"H x 18"L
Nakamichi PA-1004 - 11-1/2"x 2-1/8"x 14-7/8"
Hope this helps a little. Good luck, tough requirements.

I'd really stick to a class d design like the xtant or alto if you only have a very small space that won't have much air flow.

Look at this amp. It is small and packs a mean whallop. It makes more than rated power with ease.

Looks interesting! A bit light on the power side, but the size is right. Thanks.

Not light on the power side at all, it will easily make more than recommended power. At the same time, the difference in output levels from a 65w x 4 amp to a 75w x 4 amp, well, your ears had better be hooked to a meter to be able to tell the difference.
