Hey guys. I'm looking for not one, but 2 four channel amplifiers. I haven't bought the speakers yet, but 99% sure that I will be going with 2 pairs of infinity kappa perfect 6.1(1 in front doors, another in the rear deck), a pair of ininity kappa perfect 5.1(rear doors), and the 462cfp(2 ohm) or 462cfp(4 ohm) coaxial(front dash).
I've done pros and cons research of many amps, but I've narrowed it down to the JL 300/4 and the Phoenix Gold Xenon 200.4...Below are some of the important specs and the actual specs can be found on the html link. What are some opinions or suggestions on which amplifier to take.
1.) JL audio 300/4 - roughly $310 New off ebay - 75 Watts x 2 @ (1.5-4ohms) RMS - 0.03% THD (4 ohms) - SN ration 108.5 db - 12 or 24 db/oct crossover - 24 db/oct subsonic filter (front channels only)
if you want to see opinions on those PG amps, go to PG's website forums and see what everyone says.. people flame or compliment the amps there all the time.. lots of interesting info there if they haven't closed it down.
I know it won't disappoint all together. Something had to be wrong with the install or like you said the name. I haven't checked phoenix gold.com because I thought it would be bias, but checking around the internet...kameron's cousin is the first unsatisfied person i've read about.
THD is rather pointless by itself, and can be a misleading bit of information. no modern amp should produce enough distortion to be audible under any circumstances if it's built properly and installed/tuned corectly.
I email PG and asked why I should pick their product. They said just listen to which one sounds better in a demo store. They also said customer service. If you call when they are closed and leave a voicemail, they call you back and you could speak to a human. I'd believe it to because i emailed them twice yesterday and got responses immediately...
PS...the birthsheet is also underated...one person got one for 939 watts...that would be 117 watts x 4 @ (1-4 ohms)
