    JL Amp Vs. Planet Audio Amp

    I went to a car audio store and i asked the help there what amp would be better to power four subs? They had several brands there including JL and Planet Audio. I was leaning toward getting the JL but they said Planet Audio Amps give out more "true power" than the JL's. The planet Audio is an 800 watt amp. I was looking at getting the JL 500/1, but after what the guy said, I don't know what to do? So i need some advice, thanks.

    Well the JL's are usually underrated and that 500/1 is a great amp in the 500watt series. It is a little expensive but worth it if that is what you want. Planet audio is probably rated just about on point maybe a little over. iv heard a couple od the 2500D's and they were OK nothing id do backflips over.

    I have a 500/1.... amazing amazing amp. I love this thing. I don't know anything about Planet Audio so i have no idea if it is 800 max or RMS. I do know the 500/1 is 500 RMS though. U also gotta look at how many ohm it is rated at. the 500/1 is anywhere from 2-4 ohm, the planet audio might be only @ 2 ohm and may be less if wired at 4 ohm. the JL is also very power effeciant.



    Loud music is good... Loud music that is clear is better

    the jl is rated 500 watts at 1.5ohms, all the way up to 6 ohms... its hard to say about the planet audio, considering u didnt tell us what amp... both amps are good tho.. i remember when planet audio first came out, people had nothing but good things to say about them, and i still hear good things about them today... so i wouldnt be disappointed with either amp.

    im gonna tell you, i am biased toward planet audio. they can do everything that they say they can. they are one of the cleanest amps ive ever heard...thds around .04, which kicks ***. the jl is a good amp, but your going to pay more..i doubt youd be able to tell much difference with a comproble PA amp...the PA4002 would be perfect
