No disrespect.....I found there amps to be quite usefull in a few different setups....Never had a noise floor issue with them either? Do I run them now? no! I am not a dsp guy...not going to add to that debate..For me its just not worth it. I am happy with extreme KISS but that does not take away from other needs for other situations.... Different strokes.....All this crap is just preference...nothing more nothing less.....Something everyone should think twice about! Its music not pink noise!I'll have to disagree to the bone.
Overrated: Kicker SX900.4 MSRP of over 4 digits, noise floor makes it unusable for active filtering, low power/footprint, the endcap threads are one time use etc.
Overrated: amplifiers with built in processing. If sound quality is so important than why go through several DAC conversions? Redundancy, filters you can't bypass entirely, high noisefloor like the Kicker etc. Imo I'm no KISS guy but here is a situation where KISS goes a long way. These amplifiers are only out there because some folks believe thousands of lbs of processing will always be better... Imo, filter it once, filter it well, which means in the head or through a digitally connected processor (fiber optic/coax).
Underrated: Chad I competed too just for kicks. The rulebook says center stage should be mid dash...rofl! When I listen to my HT system I sit on the left of the sweetspot haha
