hmm im not liking these amps... thanks though... most have sub sonic filters and are low RMS... it seems like the one i have is better.. it dosent have a sub sonic filter and is rated at 460WRMS... i know it dosent push out 460WRMS but im sure it prolly hits the 350 Range... it's a pretty nice amp

but yea i think i am gonna save up and get a type R

that is unless anyone hase any better ideas for a great SPL sub with good SQ quality... i was thinking of getting into the Oz or assassins
