First question: I have been considering the Pioneer Premier TS-D720C. What do you guys think of these? Any other options.

Second question: I have a Kicker KX550.3 due in that I won on ebay. These are the specs:
# RMS Power Ratings:

* 14.4V:
o 70 watts x 2 chan. @ 4 ohms
o 85 watts x 2 chan. @ 2 ohms
o Sub Power:
o 210 watts x 1 chan. @ 4 ohms
o 420 watts x 1 chan. @ 2 ohms
* 12.5V:
o 40 watts x 2 chan. @ 4 ohms
o 70 watts x 2 chan. @ 2 ohms
o Sub Power:
o 180 watts x 1 chan. @ 4 ohms
o 360 watts x 1 chan. @ 2 ohms

My question is how do you get 14.4V?

You get to 14.4 when you start your car hopefully.

If you can get an adjustable voltage regulator...turn it up { the rest of your vehicle may not be designed for higher input voltage thus causing things to burn up }

This is done to sell amplifiers , I'd be more concerned with how much you get at 11 volts. ;)

Input to output is a gain ratio { as many volts in as you can get equals more volts out.

I have seen SPL amps rated at 18 volts input 1,550 watts out, the figure that counted was the 7,000 watts out one 12.5 volts input;)

Can't say anything about those Pioneers, but I have enjoyed every second of my TS-C720PRS! :D

They are a few more $ though. I got mine here used (great shape) for $180. I think they can be had NIB for just shy of $250.

Anyway, just a thought. Lots of info on here about some really nice components.

Have fun :)
