I would have to say that they really arent that great. I would recommend MTX, MB Quart, or Infinity. My own opinion, but ive owned all and they were all great. Whatever you do, dont buy a sony. They suck! LOL.
I think Bradley is talking about Phoenix Digital not Phoenix Gold. Just like Soundstorm and Soundstream. I really don't know anything about Phoenix Digital except for that I have seen them on some websites that only sell low end car audio. Unless I'm wrong and Phoenix Digital is a part of Phoenix Gold, but I didn't see them at PG's website.
PD is not "HIGH END" but w/ the PD-394 1000W 4 channel that I picked up for $42 I'm extremely happy w/ its preformance until it blows or I find another deal.I guess its all in what you are willing to spend & what you are looking for.
