Kinda hard to find a 6 channel... I agree that this amp is top notch. Not to mention, it looks really cool. To bad it's hidden under my passenger seat, lol.
I got a great deal on mine from Niebur3.
My wife was furious when she overheard me saying I want to do a 3 way in my Jeep. 2016 Wrangler 2 Door - Morel MT250 Tweeters - Morel Hybrid MW6 Midbass - Hertz Mille Rear fill- Sundown Zv.4 & SCV-2000D - Arc XDi - Mosconi Pico 2 - MiniDSP - source Fiio X3
Ive listened to this amp in person, amp was installed in a new ford f150 running image dynamics xs-57s in the front and rear doors and two stereo integrity bm mkiv's with a bit ten processor. This amp sounds really good for the small form factor and puts out good clean power. I was impressed how loud and clean all the speakers and sub got in my friends truck. The new $859 price tag is on the high end for me, and in my opinion overpriced.
Yeah... I was just concerned about its longevity.. and not killing a $500 amp..
The heat sink was not designed to be mounted in that configuration. Make standoffs and a plate and mount to your rear shelf, and orient the amp correctly. No additional space will be used. Yes it will require more time, but it's also the better solution. Just my .02
Right.. but the controls are on the top of the xdi amp.. so if I do what you said it would be hard for me to tweak once installed on a platform under the deck.. I would need some access to it like these folding brackets to get to the controls.. this is why my JL MHD900/5 works perfectly for that reason:
Might be a stupid question but.. does anybody know if these amps would overheat (despite having a built in fan) if installed upside down under a rear deck?? Put an external fan on it?
I saw a forum member install (3) Hertz Hdp4's upsidedown under his BMW rear deck..
Was just wondering... I have a xdi600/4 coming in the mail soon... trying to figure out mounting options
My friends has this same amp in his truck, we drove around for an hour playing music pretty loud, after the drive the amp was warm, and fan never kicked on. I would say your safe with mounting it under the deck lid.
Ok.. good to know.. thanks.. btw.. how did those SI's sound?.. was thinking of adding them to my upgrade
They sound amazing, fast, accurate, loud, and digs pretty low which is very surprising for a shallow mount. They sound soo good after listening to them in my friends truck I bought two for my car and I havent regretted that purchase one bit.
Great to see these so well liked as I have 4 to install.

Alright guys, I give up... how are you guys getting your regular 4AWG wire into the power terminals without seeing the copper if you move the wire even just slightly? The jacket of my wire will not also slip into the hole like in most other amps causing this.
