    Anyone like the JL 300/4?

    My stuff got jacked recently. I'm looking at going to a single amp to potentially drive my front (Rainbow CS230's) and rears (Alpine Type R 6x9's) instead of having 2 seperate amps. Long story short...I can get a JL 300/4 to do the job.

    Previous to the rip off..I had been using a Profile AP1040 bridged (225 watts rms I think) to drive the Rainbows and an older Hafler for the 6x9's. I will be getting another JL 500/1 to drive my 2 JL 10w6v2 subs.

    So...will I be happy with that setup? I'm going to be getting an Alpine cda-9855 deck as the head unit.

    Front/rear power: JL Audio 300/4
    Sub power: JL Audio 500/1

    i think its a pretty good amp

    although, are you sure you want to power BOTH subs with only one 500/1? you can sufficiently power them with a different amp and save a lot of money, unless youre trying to stick with one brand.

    I like mine, but I'm going to eventually upgrade to the 450/4...

    I was powering both my 10w6v2's before on a single JL 500/1 and it sounded great. Lots of punch and clarity. I love the tweakability of all the options you have on the amp. It gave me alot more options as far as finding a way to make it not so boomy and more punchy.

    I'm wondering if the tweakabilty will give me alot of options if I run a 300/4 on my fronts and rears. I may end up just bridging it and getting another small amp for the rears.

    the 450/4 it's ****!

    I also have a 300/4 and drive both of my component sets with it and it is pretty clean.

    I would recommend the 450/5 if you want to stick with using rear speakers. You don't need or want nearly as much power going to the back as you do to the front.

    Re: Anyone like the JL 300/4?

    I'd love to go with a 450/4...but just a little too much over budget. If needed...I can bridge the 300/4 and hook up an older Sony 60 watt x 2 that I've got for the rears.

    the 500/1 on two 12w6 sounds great, my friend had that same setup a while ago - it is really loud


    PM - I have a pretty new 500/1 for sale. I just bought it with my 13W7 and it wasn't loud enough, so I upgraded to a 1000/1.
