I have had two PDX-V9 amps that were returned. Both amps were too hot to touch within twenty minutes of being turned on and one even went into protect mode after an hour of listening to an audiobook. Maybe I just had two random bad amps, but I wasnt going to chance a third one. I changed to the Arc XDi 1200.6 and have never been happier. Amazing build quality, runs cool as a cucumber and throws out tons of power for its size. Highly recommend for someone looking for a single amp setup!

As I have stated before... I owned THREE PDX amplifiers and will not own a fourth! All three of them had noise issues that could not be solved, except by switching the amplifiers. Two PDX-5s and one PDX-V9 later, I'm done with Alpine's PDX series!

It seems some Alpine and JL amps have common ground issues. Try to ground your receiver to the same ground point as amp also.

Chris, man we get it. You had bad luck with the PDX amps. However an infinitely greater number of people on this earth have had great experiences with them, including myself. Get over it.

BEst sounding small foot print would be the JL HD series.. I have personally owned them and that's about as good as it gets.. But I no longer use small foot print, so there goes that story.

Nope, Mosconi has an entire new amp line out called the D2. Small footprint Class D's.

MOSCONI America | Gladen D2 Line

(It says class A/B in the main description but each amp is a class D)

Even has a built in DSP and optional bluetooth chip

I am over it. Hence the reason I would use a JL audio HD, MMATS HIFI-6150D, or even the tiny Soundstream amps over the Alpine.

See what I did there? Hahahaha
