Just because it is newer doesn't mean it will perform better or last longer.

Hehe, I agree...

Thus why the only amp I currently own is a 2.2HV that I use to Power my type X comps. (yea, it sounds sweet)

BTW, what other stuff do you have sitting around? Shoot me a PM as to not clutter this post up though.

the 4.1 makes me drool as it is

Default Re: What amps are you using ?

Currently I'm using:

Mcintosh MC440M - 6 channel (4x50W + 2x100W) <--- installed in a '96 Camaro SS
Monitor 1 2.70mkii (2x70W) & Phoenix Gold ti400.2 (sub) <--- installed in a '99 Isuzu Rodeo

Amp's I had (some I still own) in the past:

Audiobahn 4601x - Grainy and sterile.
Planet audio Vector D 1200.1 - Awesome sub amp
Planet audio HVT475 Tube - A nice tube amp, but not much 'tube' sound.
JL Audio 300/4
JL Audio 500/5
Arc Audio 2100CXL - Awesome SQ, not quite a Mcintosh, but close.
Phoenix Gold ti400.2 - good sub amp
Crunch PU275 - cheap sub amp
Planet Audio P250 - Nice SQ for a cheap amp
ADS 4.15 - Small bench testing amp - basically a chip amp.
Butler Blue Tube 275 - newer 'blue tube' model
Butler Gold 275 - One of my favorite amps of all times, next to the Mcintosh. Always puts a smile on my face.
Tube Driver TD1250 - Fantastic as a sub amp, but VERY Power hungry! Nice warm and fat tube sound.
Hifonics Brutus BX1000 - didn't impress me
Monitor mk4.70 - A nice alternative to a Mcintosh amp!

I would like to hear a Sinfoni, Tru Technology and Helix amp.

I'm sure your 'storage' is taking up space and I'll gladly offer you 10 dollars for a C7, and I'll even pay shipping!! This is a deal you cannot turn down!!

JL 1000/1: bass
JL 300/4 : midrange, treble, rear fill
Alpine V12 MRV-T320: midbass

Soon, will take an old Rockford Punch 120.2 to run the rear fill, in order to run the 300/4 for the front mids & tweets in a fully active setup.

I'm running a Monitor 1 mk4.70 and a Boss R3000d. I have another mk4.70 and a old school Rockwood AMP-899X class A. This thing is amazing. I picked it up for $65 from a guy at work and he gave me 2 bnib rockford series 1 15's also. I can't belive how great this amp is. It has way more Power than the mk4.70 and it seems to sound a bit better too.

Tsunami dB 4440 on mids and highs
Tsunami db 4440 bridged to midbass.
RE 35.1 on sub

Probably switching to Zapco DC Ref 6 channel for front stage. A lot of you guys that are wanting to run active fronts should check this thing out. plugs into your pc and digitally tune your X-over and 10 bands parametric per channel. also digitally adjust gain settings. Makes it pretty easy to match gains
